About the opportunity

We are currently seeking a highly dynamic, motivated and capable leader to serve as our next Head of School (HoS) and Dean of Pharmacy.

To be successful, you will have completed a research doctoral degree in pharmacy or pharmaceutical sciences and demonstrate significant performance and impact of your internationally recognised research, which aligns with existing research strengths of the school, or you may introduce new areas of research to the school, as indicated by competitive grants won as principal investigator, publication citation metrics and measures of esteem.

As the new HoS and Dean, you will offer a collegiate and effective leadership style; foster inter-professional and interdisciplinary collaborations; be highly strategic; have strong negotiation skills; achieve outcomes in a highly matrixed environment; and focus on innovative teaching, learning and curriculum relevance.

You will be expected to facilitate deep engagement with accreditation requirements in pharmacy, professional organisations, clinical partners, industry and government as appropriate, and attract talent to the school. Agility and resourcefulness with funding from a variety of public and private sources will also be essential, for the financial health of the school.

You will serve as a member of the faculty’s senior leadership team and will be expected to adopt a University-wide perspective in all you undertake.

Applications from female candidates are highly encouraged.
