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. 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. Our ‘triple helix’ approach of collaboration between academia, industry and business, and government and public sector, as well as the third sector, has been transformational, accelerating the development of technologies, helping companies compete and informing the development of public policy.
Harnessing the power of higher education to make a positive difference remains at the very heart of our ethos at the University of Strathclyde. As a result of this, we were recently recognised as Scottish University of the Year 2020 by The Sunday Times Good University Guide. We are also the first and only 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 exceptional individual to join us as an Associate Principal and Executive Dean within the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. 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. 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.
With a distinguished personal academic track record, you will be a first-class, inspirational leader with the requisite ambition, vision and connectivity to raise the Faculty’s international profile and to drive the Faculty to even greater success in research, teaching and knowledge exchange. You will have proven ability to deliver financial sustainability, to lead and empower the Faculty’s academic community to work collaboratively with a diverse range of stakeholders, and to develop new business opportunities and partnerships. Critically, you will have a compelling vision for Humanities and Social Sciences at Strathclyde that matches our bold and ambitious plans for the Institution.
The University of Strathclyde is committed to achieving and promoting equality and diversity among our staff and welcome applications from underrepresented groups.
