Do you have the ability to provide the strategic vision and leadership necessary to lead the School to successfully develop and deliver the School's plans through inspiring, motivating and developing staff to achieve their full potential?

Are you passionate about delivering world-leading research and an exceptional student experience in an international and interdisciplinary context?

You will lead and manage the School of Physics and Astronomy, maximising strategic opportunities arising from the changing landscape of higher education and the University's strategic plan, whilst leading and delivering excellence in research and education.

You will be an active member of the University's Leadership Forum and of the Executive Committee of the Faculty Engineering and Physical Sciences promoting a coordinated approach to delivering innovative strategic academic development. You will be taking on a significant and complex leadership role in the Faculty, and must be able to lead with a clear vision, engaging others across the School, Faculty and University.

You will have the leadership skills, ambition and creativity to take forward the development and delivery of the School's academic strategy and objectives. You will thrive on working collaboratively in a busy and dynamic environment to enhance the reputation of the School with a focus on quality and excellence.

Academic credibility is essential. You will have a sustained track record of excellence in research and/or student education, combined with excellent skills in team working and collaboration.

This represents an opportunity for a senior scholar proficient in inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary working to shape collectively the future of a School with a diverse portfolio of subject specialisms at a leading Russell Group University. You will be able to obtain very quickly a detailed working knowledge of the School's complex, multi-disciplinary operations, including a very wide variety of research projects and programmes of both undergraduate and postgraduate study.
