How to apply

Reports to:

Senior Vice President (Academic)


A competitive salary commensurate with the academic profile and experience of the successful applicant will be offered. Start-up packages would be subject to separate negotiation and would-be time-limited for the period of the Executive Dean appointment.

There are two elements to this appointment:

  • Executive Dean of the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience. This appointment will be for five years in the first instance on an additional and separate contract to that of the substantive appointment. The potential for a subsequent renewal would follow an inclusive review process.

  • The substantive appointment is an ongoing academic contract, a permanent member of the academic staff of King’s College London. It is expected, but not a requirement, that the appointee will meet the criteria for an appointment at professorial level.
