Dean and Head of School, School of Humanities, Creative Industries and Social Sciences

The University of Newcastle stands as a global Top 200 University with a vision to be a world leading University for our regions. The Looking Ahead Strategic Plan 2020-2025 captures the spirit of looking to the future to imagine and then realise possibilities, enabled by the values of excellence, equity, engagement and sustainability.

The College of Human and Social Futures is dynamic, unique and research-intensive with a diverse range of disciplines across its four Schools. Extending across traditional, emerging and cross-disciplinary fields of knowledge, the College pursues discoveries and educates through real-world, practical experience and teachings, to contribute to shaping and improving our society. The College has a particular emphasis on promoting reconciliation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The newly formed School of Humanities, Creative Industries and Social Sciences (HCISS) coalesces expertise that aides our knowledge of global peoples, societies, histories, arts and cultures, and helps us to reimagine the future. Reporting to the College Pro Vice-Chancellor, the University is seeking a Dean and Head of School to lead the new School and will champion quality teaching, research and engagement across all disciplines, capitalising on the first-class facilities on multiple campuses.

As Dean and Head of School, you will work closely with the leadership group of the School and College and colleagues across the University to develop and deliver on strategic objectives, while fostering a culture of collaboration, inclusivity and innovation. A proven track record of scholarly achievement and demonstrated transformational leadership and management skills should be complemented by strong evidence of inspiring and impactful industry and stakeholder engagement.

If you are seeking a progressive-minded academic leadership role where you can genuinely make a real and impactful difference, then we would like to hear from you.
