Academy of Social Sciences seeks new President

19 November 2020

Professor Roger Goodman FAcSS will complete his term of office as President of the Academy in June 2021. The Academy’s Council has therefore established a President Search Committee to make recommendations to Council as to Roger’s successor.

It’s an important and exciting time to be President of the Academy as we implement our new strategy and seek to grow further the Academy’s profile and impact. We are looking widely for people (Fellows or those with the standing to make them eligible for Fellowship) from either academic or other sectors who meet the criteria set out in the role and person specification. This also sets out next steps for those who may be interested in applying. We are being supported in our search by GatenbySanderson and candidates should submit applications via their website¬†from Monday 23 November.

If you have any suggestions for others whom you think might meet the criteria, please contact the Search Committee Chair, Dame Jil Matheson FAcSS¬† at [email protected] by 10 December.
