A demonstrable commitment to, or interest in, education and research is important, and candidates must resonate with Imperial’s mission and vision.

The appointment is for an initial term of four years, renewable by the Council for another four-year term. Reasonable expenses may be claimed but the Chair of Council position is not remunerated.
