Attractive Package

Outstanding Opportunity to Lead World-Class New Faculty

This is a rare opportunity to develop a world-class integrated health Faculty leveraging the regional, national and international profile of a progressive University within a rapidly changing global environment.

The University’s new Faculty of Health is being formed from its two existing structures covering a broad health base across medicine, dentistry, biomedicine, nursing, allied health professions and psychology.  Plymouth was the first post-92 university to have its own medical school and is the largest provider of nursing training in the south-west. A vibrant, interdisciplinary community of students, researchers and staff work closely with the NHS Trusts in the south-west region under the banner First Choice for Health.    

The first Executive Dean of the new Faculty will play a significant role in shaping its education, research and professional positioning. This is a fantastic opportunity for a committed and visionary leader to contribute to the future of an ambitious institution. The new Dean will require the intellectual capacity, commercial acumen, strategic expertise and ambition necessary to be a member of the University’s Executive Group.
