The University of Bristol seeks to appoint an outstanding academic leader as the Head of the Civil, Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering School.

As Head of School, you will occupy a key academic leadership position within the University.  Reporting to the Faculty Dean, you will lead and manage the academic business of the School in relation both to strategy and to operations. 

Candidates will have outstanding leadership credentials and a track record of excellence in research and education.  An open and inclusive approach towards academic and professional service colleagues is a key requirement of the role, as is the ability to develop partnerships and to promote knowledge exchange.  A deep commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion is also essential.

This is an exceptional opportunity to shape the future of the School at a pioneering, Russell Group University in a creative, culturally vibrant city that was named the best city to live in by The Sunday Times in its ‘Best Places to Live Guide 2017’.
