Head of the School of History, Classics & Archaeology,
Newcastle University -School of History, Classics & Archaeology
Closing date: 21 March 2014
Our vision is of Newcastle as a civic university with a global reputation for academic excellence. Achieving this vision requires leadership – the ability to bring out the best in others, to make lasting changes, and to set standards that are second to none.
As a Head of School within our renowned Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, you will combine these qualities with an outstanding record of leadership achievement, strong academic credentials, and an outward-looking inter-disciplinary approach that capitalises on the breadth of Newcastle’s portfolio. In return we offer you the opportunity to put your ideas into practice in a senior leadership position, promoting a culture of ambition supported by the University’s international profile as a member of the Russell Group.
With a strong commitment to internationalisation, inter-disciplinarity and innovation in research, and research-led teaching, the School, which is housed in the refurbished Armstrong Building, leads a number of research centres and has close links with the Great North Museum. The School has a thriving postgraduate and postdoctoral research culture and NSS results are in the top ten nationally.
