Academic Board vacancies

The Secretariat is now taking expressions of interests from eligible candidates for two vacancies on the Academic Board, a Directorate and a Professoriate member.

Both positions are held for a period of three years and the Secretariat is looking forward to hearing from interested candidates from across the LJMU community.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Academic Board please email your expression of interest to the Secretariat by 5pm on Friday 23 December.

For an informal discussion about the expected level of commitment, the role and its responsibilities please email Michael Thompson, Clerk to the Board of Governors.

Ensuring our Academic Board is inclusive

The Secretariat is particularly keen to ensure that the Academic Board is inclusive and representative of the entire LJMU community and would encourage expressions of interest from underrepresented groups including people with a disability, from an ethnic minority background and women.

Responsibilities of the Academic Board

The Academic Board plays a vital role in the governance of the university. It is responsible to the Board of Governors for overseeing all academic activities across the institution.

The board maintains the set academic standard of awards and further enhances the expected high quality of educational provision in the best interest of the student experience in line with LJMU’s core vision, values and overall strategy.

As a member of the Academic Board, you will help to shape the future of the university, and guide with assurance, the Board of Governors in its decision-making responsibilities and accountability to all regulatory bodies.

Process for filling the vacancies

If more than one expression of interest is received for each vacancy, then an election will be called with further information to follow regarding that process and next steps.
