The IHR Director Professor Jo Fox has been appointed Dean of the School of Advanced Study and Pro-Vice Chancellor for Research and Public Engagement for the University of London. Jo will leave the IHR and take up her new role on 1 December.
We wish to congratulate Jo on her appointment and to celebrate her many achievements while Director of the IHR, including her leadership in development of the IHR Strategy, 2020-25, which will continue to guide the Institute’s mission, initiatives and exciting new projects over the coming years. In her capacity as Dean of the School, Jo will continue to play a significant role in the IHR’s Centenary programme, which will launch in the summer of 2021. We look forward to working in partnership with Jo in her new role as Dean.
We will in due course begin the search for a new IHR Director, and look forward to making a new appointment during our Centenary Year (2021-22).
Details of interim arrangements will be shared as soon as possible.
A statement from the School of Advanced Study on Jo's appointment is available here.
