The European University Institute seeks to hire a Director for its School of Transnational Governance.
The School of Transnational Governance (STG) (https://stg.eui.eu/) was created in 2017 with the aim of delivering teaching and high-level executive education in the methods, knowledge, skills and practice of governance beyond the State. The STG brings the worlds of academia and policy-making together in an effort to operate in a context, both inside and outside Europe, where policy-making increasingly transcends national borders. The main activities of the School are structured around four pillars: (i) Master of Arts in Transnational Governance; (ii) Executive Education for Practitioners; (iii) Policy Leader Fellowships; (iv) High-Level Policy Dialogues. The STG has started with the policy and executive education activities and will begin operation of its flagship Master of Arts programme in 2020.
Candidates will have proven experience in managing an academic, policy research, policy advocacy, and/or executive education centre, strong institution-building skills, and a demonstrated track record of engaging with public policy questions and the world of practice. They will preferably have acquired direct experience in the world of transnational policy making. They will have a proven talent and strong skills in creating and motivating transnational networks, a sound knowledge of the global higher education and training landscape in the fields of governance, international relations and public policy, a proven and deep familiarity with one of the relevant fields of study of the STG. The Director will be responsible for the growth and consolidation of the STG and will build it into an internationally recognised institution. She/he will manage the School and develop its medium and long-term strategy, recruit faculty, implement educational programmes and raise funds.
The EUI is an equal opportunities employer and takes into account the importance of balance in gender, geographical and minority representation.

Deadline for receipt of applications: 30 October 2019.
