Two parallell tracks
Harald Castler is the Chairperson for the recruitment group that the University Governing Board has appointed to lead the entire recruitment process. As a help, the recruitment company Source has been hired. As a start, the recruitment is happening in two parallel tracks: one consisting of the open application process where anyone can apply, and the other where Source is using personal networks to look for a candidate. Any suitable candidates resulting from leads in the networks will hand in an application.
“Our hope is that personnel, students and external stakeholders continue to engage in the recruitment process, by, for example, letting suitable candidates know that the vacancy has been announced and to get in contact with Source”, says Harald Castler.
The Government appoints the new Vice-Chancellor
The application period ends on April 4. After that, Source will be doing interviews and tests, and as a last step before the University Governing board decides on the suggested new Vice-Chancellor, the advisory hearing groups will be called upon. At the University Governing board meeting in June, the Board is expected to decide on who will be suggested as a new Vice-Chancellor. After that, the Government will appoint the new Vice-Chancellor, who is expected to begin their appointment around the same time as Stephen Hwang ends his.
If you know anyone who is a suitable candidate, please encourage them to take a look at the job advertisement and contact the consultants at Source:
