Imperial College London is one of the world’s leading science-focused universities, committed to making advances in research and education and lasting contributions to society. Inspirational, multi-cultural, and a global institution in outlook and reach, Imperial has three faculties – Engineering, Medicine and Natural Sciences – and Imperial College Business School. Financially strong, with an annual turnover of circa £970 million, Imperial has an international community of over 17,500 students and 8,000 staff.

The College is driving rapid advances in Medicine and Health, bringing profound new opportunities to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities, both locally and worldwide. Health-related research is carried out across all three faculties and the Business School. 

The Vice-President (Health) is a major strategic cross-College leadership and influencing role for Imperial. Working closely with the President, Provost and the Vice-President (Advancement), the Vice-President (Health) will help to identify strategic opportunities that build upon Imperial’s strengths in health and wellbeing, advance the College’s reputation as a powerhouse of collaboration and innovation, liaise with NHS partners, promote innovative international partnerships and engage, alongside the President, in generating the widest possible range of support for health research and education across the College. The complexity and scope of the challenges calls for collaboration with fields beyond medicine and life sciences and with institutions beyond Imperial.
