McMaster University is focused on creating a brighter world, improving the health and well-being of all people while advancing the boundaries of human knowledge, creativity, and understanding.
Located in Hamilton, Ontario, McMaster is one of only four Canadian universities consistently ranked among the Top 100 in the world by the major global ranking systems. Beyond its academic and research prowess, the University enjoys a rich and diverse cultural life, enhanced by the newly opened, state-of-the art-facilities of McMaster’s L.R. Wilson Hall.
The Socrates Project is an ambitious initiative intended to take full advantage of these exceptional facilities and engage students, faculty, and the community at large in vibrant, multidisciplinary and educational programming and performances. In showcasing the liberal arts and demonstrating the power of critical thought to address some of our most significant challenges, the project is intended as a major intervention in the intellectual life of our society.
McMaster is seeking an accomplished, imaginative, and inspiring leader to launch and oversee the operational mandate of this exciting project. As the ideal candidate, you are a strategic and inspiring leader who will develop and deliver a compelling vision for the implementation of the Socrates Project, and engender enthusiastic support among its stakeholders, partners, and donors.

You are well known in the Arts, media, public policy or a related field. You are a skilled administrator with the organizational judgement and experience to build and oversee the infrastructure for the implementation of the Project and support its long-term success.
Applications will be accepted immediately, and will continue until the Project Director is appointed.
