The George Institute for Global Health at the University of Oxford is seeking to appoint an Executive Director to lead a high-quality research and development programme in both China and the UK. The appointee will direct the Institute’s centre in Beijing and oversee the formulation and design of new large-scale studies and other research and development projects, focusing particularly on chronic diseases and injuries and the delivery of healthcare to disadvantaged populations. This position is a senior leadership role that demands the highest level input into strategic planning, operational management, budget management and people management, as well as revenue generation.

We are seeking an individual with an outstanding international reputation for innovative health and medical research who has ambitious research plans and a strong track record in attracting and managing externally funded research. The appointee should have significant experience in leading teams of researchers, as well as experience in working with senior academics and government agencies in China. Applications will be considered from established researchers in any relevant medical field. The appointee will be expected to spend the majority of their time working in the Institute’s office in Beijing, and about three months a year in the Institute’s office in Oxford.

Appropriately qualified individuals would be potentially eligible for senior academic appointments at both the University of Oxford and Peking University Health Science Centre.

The post is full time and fixed-term for 5 years. The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Monday, 20 January 2014.
