Dave Robertson's term as Head of School ends on 31 July 2014. The appointment of his successor is the responsibility of the Head of College, Lesley Yellowlees, following a fixed procedure set by the University and due to start in November.

In preparation for that, however, a school working group headed by Alan Bundy is canvassing comment and proposals from all staff and research students in the school. These will be collated anonymously and passed to the eventual selection panel.

Four members of LFCS are on the working group: Vashti Galpin, Elham Kashefi, Peter Buneman, and myself. For this lab lunch we'll give a presentation about the Head of School appointment, and then invite discussion on the questions:

  • What do you think are the key issues facing the School?
  • What qualities do you wish for in the next Head of School?


We also invite you to approach us, or any member of the working group, with your personal comments on the following:

  • Who do you think would be a good candidate for the post?
  • What are your views on possible candidates?
  • Would you consider applying for the position?
