Job description

The University of Queensland (UQ) has established itself as an institution of global standing and impact. In 2011 it ranked in the Top 100 universities worldwide in all three of the major international ranking systems. The University is performing strongly, is a leader in a wide range of research areas, and is recognised for delivering its 45,000 students an outstanding learning experience. Staff at UQ have won more national teaching awards than any other Australian university.

The University is seeking to appoint a strong and inspiring leader as Executive Dean of the Faculty of Arts. The Faculty is central to the University's goal of providing a high quality and broad, liberal education, with responsibility for the University's largest undergraduate degree (Bachelor of Arts) cohort of around 3800 students. Its four Schools encompass the core humanities disciplines. The Faculty, through its schools and two highly regarded research centres, has a strong research reputation having achieved an "above world standard" ERA ranking in the humanities.

As the new Executive Dean, you will have the strategic capacity to provide a fresh vision for the Faculty: building on its strengths to further enhance research output and ensure that academic programs are high quality, responsive and engaging. You will range comfortably across engagement with diverse external audiences, the generation of new sources of revenue, and the development of substantial international opportunities.

With personal credibility as a scholar, you will already have proved yourself able to successfully unite and lead staff and students behind common goals in a rapidly changing external environment. You will have confident communication and relationship building skills.

The role is based at UQ's main St Lucia Campus in Brisbane, Australia.
