Founded in 1796 as a place of ‘useful learning’, the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow is a leading international technological university proud to deliver world class education, pioneering research and innovative partnerships around the globe. We utilise our internationally leading teaching, research and translational expertise to solve the key global challenges of our age. As a socially progressive institution, we focus on impact, pioneering technologies not just for their own sake but because they help society economically, in its health, quality of life and its creativity.
We have a track record of partnering with businesses, reaching outside the University to make the world better educated, prosperous, healthy, fairer and more secure. As a result of this, we were recognised as Scottish University of the Year 2020 by The Sunday Times Good University Guide, and as Workplace of the Year in 2017, Business School of the Year in 2016, and Entrepreneurial University of the Year in 2013 by Times Higher Education. We are the first university to win the coveted Times Higher Education University of the Year title twice, in 2012 and again in 2019.
We are now seeking an outstanding individual to join us as an Associate Principal and Executive Dean within the Faculty of Engineering. Responsible to the Principal and Vice-Chancellor, you will be a key member of our Senior Executive Team and will contribute to the academic and corporate leadership of the University as we move forward with our Strategic Plan 2025. You will provide visionary leadership for a faculty that enjoys an excellent reputation across a wide spectrum of disciplines and will ensure the efficient and effective management of faculty resources in the provision of outstanding teaching and learning, research, and knowledge exchange.
You will have an exceptional academic track record, inspirational leadership style and the vision and connectivity to raise the faculty’s international profile and to drive it to even greater success. You will have proven ability to deliver financial sustainability, to motivate and empower the faculty’s academic community, to work collaboratively with a diverse range of stakeholders, and to develop new business opportunities and partnerships.
