Head of School, School of Literature, Art and Media
Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, University of Sydney
Closing date: 11.30pm 23 July 2017 (Sydney time)

Reference no. 898/0517

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) wishes to appoint a distinguished academic as Head of School, School of Literature, Art and Media. The individual appointed will have a record of original and innovative contributions to research, learning and teaching, and academic management.

The Head of School is a member of the senior management team of FASS. Under the broad direction of the Dean and within the general outlines of the Faculty Strategic Plan and faculty budget, the Head of School will have the overall academic leadership, financial and management responsibility of the school.

The Head of School will supervise the chairs of the seven departments in the school. Of critical importance to success will be the ability to work closely with these department chairs and the professors, in the provision of leadership across the key areas of learning and teaching, research, curriculum and community relations and development. You will also be expected to develop the school’s collaborative activities with colleagues across the University, including the United States Studies Centre.

Informed by the established and emergent research strengths of the school, you will also be expected to contribute to the development and implementation of the school’s strategic direction.

While the focus of the position is academic management, it is expected that you will continue to contribute to research and scholarship in your own discipline. Preference may be given to individuals with experience and expertise that will complement the existing teaching and research strengths of the school.
