Election of Principal

Homerton College is the newest and largest College in Cambridge with a deep tradition of public service. A welcoming and diverse institution, Homerton offers a balance of innovation and forward-thinking with a rich 250 years of history. Homerton became a full Cambridge College in 2010, and successfully pursues its mission to foster a talented, inclusive and principled community that contributes to society through the pursuit of education and research at the highest level.

As one of the University of Cambridge’s constituent Colleges, Homerton offers strengths across the full breadth of disciplines from criminal law to cellular reprogramming, and artificial intelligence to economic development. Following the retirement of Professor Geoffrey Ward, Homerton’s Principal since 2013, the College invites applications from outstanding candidates to fill the role of Principal from Autumn 2021. The new Principal will join Homerton at a pivotal phase of its history, as the College consolidates its strategic direction and advances its distinctive identity within Collegiate Cambridge. Homerton is seeking to elect a Principal who will lead and support that strategic direction, and promote its vision for the future, building on pioneering initiatives such as the Homerton Changemakers programme and the College’s dynamic approach towards access and outreach and towards the provision of student welfare.

Candidates should possess an outstanding record of leadership and achievement in their field. They should be dedicated to furthering the College’s aims and ethos and supporting the highest level of academic achievement. The next Principal will have a demonstrable ability to lead Homerton College with an inspiring vision, supporting the College in this crucial next phase of its history, and the operational acuity to oversee the administration of the College.

Completed applications should be uploaded at https://candidates.perrettlaver.com/vacancies/ quoting reference number 4867.

The closing date for applications is 17:00 GMT on Wednesday 9th December 2020.
