Vice President for Research and Creative Scholarship
The University of Montana (UM) is extending its search for a dedicated professional with established ability to provide energetic leadership for the University’s ambitious research and creative scholarship agenda. As an American Carnegie High Research Activity University, UM is committed to ongoing improvement and planning in its research programs in the natural and social sciences, and in the humanities and the arts. To that end, the University’s Strategic Plan calls for substantially increasing external funding by 2020 from its current level of approximately $60 million.
To achieve our research and creative scholarship goals, we seek an individual who will actively support faculty, staff and students engaged in research and creative activities, create and strengthen research partnerships and collaborations, and effectively articulate the university’s vision for research and creative scholarship and communicate that vision to all constituents, including the general public. The VP for Research and Creative Scholarship will report directly to the University’s President.
We have a talented team at The University of Montana. We are looking for another exceptional player. The University of Montana-Missoula has 15,600 students, 2,400 faculty and staff, and a total budget of $403 million. This VP position offers a competitive salary and benefits package and the opportunity to live in and enjoy one of the finest college towns in America, featuring a broad range of cultural offerings, an eclectic social scene and some of the grandest outdoor possibilities in the lower 48.
