Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) is among the world’s leading graduate schools for international relations. Established in 1943 by Paul H. Nitze and Christian Herter, for 80 years it has prepared the next generation of leaders to meet the complex international challenges the U.S. and the world face. Its innovative curriculum emphasizing international politics, economics, and foreign languages, combined with skills training and experiential learning, helps prepare students to make a difference in government, civil society, and the private sector. Today, from its home in Washington DC, and campuses in Bologna and Nanjing, SAIS carries on this tradition, preparing students for the emerging challenges of the 21st century. Johns Hopkins SAIS alumni number more than 20,000 graduates, a network of professionals working across the globe.
SAIS Europe now seeks its inaugural Rector (‘’Rector’’) and Vice Dean. The oldest American graduate school of international affairs in Europe, it has produced leaders in the field of international affairs since 1955. Its c. 200 students represent around 35 countries and benefit from an outstanding resident faculty complemented by adjunct professors drawn from top universities, institutes, think tanks, international NGOs, consulting firms, and financial institutions in Europe and beyond.
A transformative $100m gift from James and Morag Anderson offers the Rector to build upon this remarkable platform, growing SAIS Europe into a global, multidisciplinary research and teaching hub, bringing together a wide range of leading academics and practitioners to offer multidisciplinary solutions to international problems, facilitate scientific and technological research on public policies, and work toward peace and democratic development.
The Rector will work in collaboration with the Dean of SAIS to advance the school's mission, vision and strategic priorities, developing and delivering this incredible opportunity through entrepreneurial and energetic leadership across Faculty Expansion, Facilities Growth, Campus Integration and Financial Aid. They will foster a vibrant, supportive and inclusive campus culture.
Candidates will have a global reputation in the field of international relations, through research and/or practice, with the intellectual visibility to represent SAIS and attract leading faculty and practitioners on behalf of the School. They will be able to demonstrate successful leadership within a relevant context, and evidence behaviours in alignment with the mission and values of Johns Hopkins University.
Johns Hopkins University and SAIS are deeply committed to the dignity and equality of all persons. Johns Hopkins SAIS aims to cultivate a community where everyone feels welcome and valued. Fostering an environment of respect and inclusion is central to the mission of the school and its commitment to celebrating the myriad of diverse backgrounds, perspectives and experiences that contribute to a rich learning environment.
