Nominate a candidate to become the new deputy vice-chancellor

The University Board has now approved the person specification for the new deputy vice-chancellor of Lund, whose term of office will start on 1 January 2021. This means that the application period has now begun and employees and students can nominate candidates.

The term of office of the current deputy vice-chancellor, Sylvia Schwaag Serger, ends on 31 December, the same date that the present vice-chancellor Torbjörn von Schantz’s term of office comes to an end. The Recruitment Committee, in parallel with the recruitment process for a new vice-chancellor from 2021, has assisted the University Board in producing a person specification for the next deputy vice-chancellor. This person specification was approved by the board on 18 September.

The deputy vice-chancellor, together with the vice-chancellor and others in management, is to develop the University’s education, research and external engagement, and utilise the potential of a broad university. The global issues of today, not least the ongoing pandemic, constantly pose new challenges for the University.

The deputy vice-chancellor deputises for the vice-chancellor when the vice-chancellor is absent, and otherwise stands in for the vice-chancellor to the extent decided by the vice-chancellor. The deputy vice-chancellor is a member of bodies such as the University Management and the vice-chancellor’s Management Council. At Lund University the vice-chancellor and deputy vice-chancellor are expected to work together as a team who complement each other and in tandem lead the University. In this context, Lund University’s Strategic Plan for 2017–2026 is a key document.
The application period runs until 12 October 2020 and during this time the Recruitment Committee is also accepting nominations from employees and students.
