Head of School vacancy: Chemistry Food & Pharmacy

University shield

The University is inviting applications for the post of Head of School of Chemistry, Food & Pharmacy (SCFP) for the next six years, from 1 August. 

The role is open only to internal candidates and offers a good opportunity for colleagues within SCFP, and across the University, to develop their careers by taking on academic leadership and managerial role.

The Head of School is responsible for providing the School's academic leadership, and will also contribute to the broader leadership within the wider University.

In a message to potential applicants, Mark Fellowes, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Academic Planning & Resources) says, "The role of Head of School is quite simply both highly challenging and highly rewarding. There is no underplaying just how important it is. A Head of School must be many things to many people, providing support and guidance, but directing where necessary."

More information on the role, including job description and person specification, is available in the link below:
