Academic Dean, Lancaster University at Sunway, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Deadline: 31 May 2019.
In 2006, Lancaster University established a strategic partnership with Sunway University in Subang Jaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. They are now seeking to appoint an Academic Dean who will play a substantial role in maintaining the high profile and reputation of the partnership in Malaysia and the broader South East Asia region. As Academic Dean, you will be the senior representative for Lancaster University at Sunway University. You will be expected to build on the successful partnership and advance activities along three major themes: teaching, research and engagement.
You will play a lead role in ensuring the quality of teaching, enhancing standards, promoting existing programmes and developing new opportunities across the academic portfolio of Lancaster/Sunway Dual Degree undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. Current enrolments on these programmes exceed four thousand students. There will be a requirement for travel, both within Malaysia and overseas – such as to Lancaster – to strengthen the working relationship between partners and to attend student recruitment fairs.
