The University of Exeter combines world-class research with excellent student satisfaction, from our campuses in the South West of England, in Exeter and Cornwall. We are one of the very few universities to be both a member of the Russell Group and have a Gold award from the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), evidence of our established international reputation for excellence in both research and teaching. Our success is built on a strong partnership with our 30,000 students – from 150 countries - and a clear focus on high performance. Based on the vibrant St Luke’s Campus, the University of Exeter Medical School is critical part of the University’s Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, and enjoys a world-leading reputation in several areas of research.

We are now seeking to appoint a new Deputy Pro Vice-Chancellor and Dean of the Medical School. The School has contributed to the overall success of the institution and this role will play a pivotal part in the continued growth of the School and its academic activity.

As a Deputy PVC, the Dean will contribute to the development of wider Faculty and University strategy.
Candidates will have a demonstrable ability to lead a department of appropriate scale within a field of science relevant to the medical school. A track record of leading successful growth across both research and teaching activity within in a high performing context will be key. The appointed candidate will bring a collaborative and inclusive management style, an ability to develop partnerships with external stakeholders – ideally with but not limited to the NHS – and a capacity to lead through influence alongside efficient and effective resource management.
