Applications are invited for the Headship of the Social Sciences Division. The University is seeking to appoint an eminent social scientist or academic lawyer to provide leadership for this internationally renowned academic division. The division comprises ten world-class Departments and Faculties, most located in the new Centre for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences building: the Departments of Economics, Politics and International Relations, Sociology, Social Policy and Social Work, International Development (Queen Elizabeth House), and Educational Studies, the Law Faculty, the Saïd Business School, the Oxford Internet Institute, and a newly-formed School of Interdisciplinary Area Studies.

The range and distinction of the Social Sciences Division are considerable and the priority for the next Head will be to provide leadership and vision to support and advance the constituent units' ambitious research agendas and to help them consolidate their strong teaching base. The division currently enjoys a highly collegial style of self-government with co-ordination, oversight, and support for units' activities provided by the divisional officers, secretariat, and board. This is a full-time senior management position, tenable from 1 October 2005 at a competitive salary, which provides an exciting opportunity to continue to shape the development of social sciences at Oxford. Candidates should have academic standing, and the administrative and managerial skills to implement Oxford's vision of the national and international role of its Social Science Departments.
