Can you provide the strategic vision and leadership necessary for the School to successfully develop and deliver its plans through inspiring, motivating and developing staff to achieve their full potential? Are you passionate about delivering world-leading research and an exceptional student experience in an international and interdisciplinary context? 

You will lead and manage the School of Chemical and Process Engineering, maximising strategic opportunities arising from the changing landscape of higher education and the University’s strategic plan, whilst leading and delivering excellence in research and education.
