Category: Senior Management Group | College/Division: College of Social Science | Area: College of Social Science | Department: School of Education | Location: Brayford | Closing Date: 28 Sep 2014 |
The University of Lincoln is expanding its Centre for Educational Research & Development into a new School of Education and we are looking to recruit an inspirational Head of School to lead the transition.

This is a rare opportunity for an exceptional candidate to transform a relatively small centre for educational research and doctoral study into a vibrant collegiate hub of teaching and research. We are adding Master's-level courses for PGCE students and a Master's degree in Education to our current offering. We are also building extensive links with Teaching Schools, schools, teachers and educational groups that will place us at the heart of education in the region.

As our Head of School, you will be responsible for developing and growing our portfolio of educational programmes and for nurturing relationships with a wide range of educational institutions. You will be required to provide academic leadership, co-ordinate research and funding activities, and work to raise the School's profile across regional, national and global networks. There will be the chance to contribute to the College of Social Science and the University more generally, while strengthening the impact of the School's work in educational policy and practice.

Applicants should demonstrate management and teaching experience in education and/or higher education and should be familiar with developing programme portfolios; supervising PhD students; obtaining funding and supporting staff to perform at their best. You should have a degree (or equivalent) and a PhD (or a comparable record of published research or papers).

This is a unique opportunity to take a lead role in a forward-thinking, vibrant university and to be key in building our teaching and research culture, whilst working in the heart of a thriving, friendly and historic city.

Please contact Imogen Wilde, Associate Director, Education Practice at Harvey Nash on +44 (0) 207 333 1503 or +44 77 9193 8533 for an informal conversation about this opportunity.
