The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and

we are now seeking to appoint a Director to lead and develop
the Institute as an international beacon of outstanding

infectious disease researchers, and form a critical part of
the largest biosciences hub in Europe. The Institute will
undertake knowledge exchange and accelerate translational
research, working with the National Health Service partners,
the healthcare industry, and the global collaborative network
of the School and UCL. The Institute will be ideally placed
to move new treatments and solutions for prevention and
control of infectious diseases from the laboratory to real
world applications, from bench to bedside and populations.

running a substantial research department or institute,
the successful post-holder will be responsible for
developing, implementing and delivering the strategic
plan for the Institute, in collaboration with the partners
and other stakeholders; guiding the development of
the institute through design and construction through to
operational management and leadership.
