Associate Dean: Research
The role of Associate Dean: Research is absolutely central to the intellectual and creative life of CSM. The post holder will lead the way that CSM supports, develops and disseminates its research. The research base at CSM is already very strong, so there is the opportunity to develop new areas and collaborations, as well as bringing out the work of emerging researchers.
The post holder will need to respect and understand the broad range of research interests and methodologies that exist with CSM. The role also demands sensitive negotiation within the complex systems that any large institution throws up, particularly an understanding of the need to address both college and university needs. The post holder will also have to work closely with colleagues in the areas of knowledge exchange and contract research.
You will be an experienced researcher in one of the disciplines covered by CSM, with a track record of high level outputs, and experience in funding applications and research grant delivery. Candidates of appropriate standing will be considered for professorial title under normal UAL procedures.
You should also have some experience in research leadership and management. You will need to have a knowledge of the various structures and policies associated with HE research, particularly as they impact on the creative arts.
In return, University of the Arts London offers generous leave, an attractive pension and a commitment to your continuing personal development and training in an environment that encourages excellence, creativity and diversity. Relocation assistance is available.
