University of Edinburgh - Scottish Universities Physics Alliance (SUPA)
SUPA is an alliance of eight universities aimed at developing physics in Scotland into a world leading force through pooling resources and planning research strategy nationally. The formation of SUPA has been boosted by a £48M research investment programme over seven years funded by the Scottish Funding Council and the constituent universities.
SUPA seeks a scientist of international standing to lead the Alliance, following the retirement of Prof Ian Halliday CBE FRSE, who has been its Chief Executive Officer (CEO) since 2005. The CEO will promote the SUPA branding of Scottish physics, develop its Scotland-wide Graduate School and establish a Scotland-wide Knowledge Transfer programme that maximises the impact of SUPA's research.
The successful candidate should have an international track record in any area of Physics or Astronomy research relevant to the SUPA universities, as well as experience and proven success in science management and policy at a senior level. Salary will be at a competitive level for such a senior position, and the post could be held at any one of the eight SUPA Universities. The appointment, which will be part-time up to 2 days per week, will be for four years in the first instance with the possibility of extension.
Applications are being handled by the University of Edinburgh on behalf of the consortium. More information about SUPA can be found at http://www.supa.ac.uk .
Members of SUPA are The Universities of Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, St Andrews, Strathclyde and the West of Scotland, and Heriot-Watt University.
