Dean, UCL Faculty of Social & Historical Sciences

Consistently ranked among the world’s top universities, UCL’s global reputation for excellence in research and education extends across all academic disciplines, from arts and humanities, social sciences and laws to biomedicine, science and engineering and the built environment. UCL now seeks an exceptional Dean of Social & Historical Sciences to lead this ambitious and innovative faculty through the next phase of its development.

The faculty’s eight departments – Anthropology, Archaeology, Economics,
Geography, History, History of Art, Institute of the Americas, Political Science
– have major disciplinary research strengths, and contribute significantly
to UCL’s growing network of interdisciplinary research centres.

As a member of the Provost’s Senior Management Team, you will be
responsible for the development of the long-term strategic vision for the
faculty. You will lead, inspire and enthuse a diverse range of colleagues
and partners within the UK and internationally, contributing to the delivery
of UCL 2034, the university’s 20-year strategy.

You will be an internationally-recognised academic leader in a field relevant
to the faculty’s academic portfolio, with a track record of creating a culture
of high performance, collaboration, innovation and impact. You thrive in
a collegial environment, and are demonstrably able to lead the alignment
of multi-disciplinary interests behind challenging goals. Your passion and
intellectual curiosity will inspire colleagues across the spectrum of disciplines
to deliver a world-leading teaching, research and impact agenda.

Please contact Owen Francis for further particulars and a confidential
conversation about the role at
