Interviews for the post of Executive Director will be held in Oxford on the afternoon of Thursday, 9 May, with the possibility of a second interview on the morning of Friday, 10 May. Regrettably, there is no flexibility in these dates.
We expect to inform those selected for interview not later than 1 May.
The Appointing Committee will consist of Andrienne d’Arenberg, Professor José Manuel Barroso, Professor Isabel Gil, Dr Andrew Graham, and Professor Anna-Lena Högenauer.


Salary circa £80,000 (and pro rata) – equivalent to an Oxford Professorial appointment.

The Europaeum, a network of leading European universities, seeks to appoint a new full-time, or near-full time, Executive Director.  The appointment starts on 15th July 2024 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The Europaeum ( was set up by the University of Oxford in 1992. Today, it has 18 member universities in 15 countries. Its mission is to give the most talented, most energetic and most socially committed students within the Europaeum network the opportunities to develop professional qualities to shape the future of Europe for the better.  The Executive Director will head a small, but exceptionally able team (4 FTEs) based in Oxford. The post offers a challenging opportunity to develop ties across Europe, to build the student and alumni connections, and to work with outstanding graduate students, many of whom will become leaders in Europe.

The successful candidate will need exceptional interpersonal skills, the ability to lead, and to combine high level teaching, research and policy formation in fresh and imaginative ways. It is likely to appeal to someone who enjoys the worlds of both academia and policy and who wishes to have an impact on the future of Europe.

The closing date for applications is Monday, 8 April 2024.  Applications and requests for further information should be submitted by email to Kate Tilley at
