Job: Director, UCL School of Slavic and East European Studies, University College London

Deadline: May 12, 2017

Consistently ranked among the world’s top universities, UCL’s global reputation for excellence in research and education extends across all academic disciplines, from arts and humanities, social sciences and laws to biomedicine, science and engineering and the built environment. UCL now seeks an exceptional Director of the UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies. SSEES is the world’s leading institution for research and
teaching on Russia, the Baltics, and Central, Eastern and South-East Europe. The School’s mission is to
foster cross-disciplinary approaches to area studies, using expertise in our primary geographical region to generate knowledge and understanding of the broader world. Our work is organised into four interrelated programmes: Economics and Business; History; Languages and Culture; Politics and Sociology. With our spectacular library and award-winning building in the heart of London, at the centre of a vibrant network of national and international connections, SSEES provides a unique and dynamic environment where students acquire the expertise and skills that employers want, including an unparalleled range of languages. 

The Director is responsible for developing SSEES’s overall vision, providing strategic leadership, and promoting SSEES as a world-leading multidisciplinary specialist institution for the study of Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe, and Russia. S/he will be expected also to provide leadership in research and teaching to the wider
UCL community and engage in an active dialogue with a variety of international and domestic partners, such as peer area studies centres, major universities, and Ambassadors and/or Cultural Attachés posted to the UK from the SSEES region of study.
