Downing seeks a new Master

Downing College is delighted to begin the search for its next Master, to take over from Alan Bookbinder, the 18th Master, who departs next year.

With the College poised at an exciting point in its evolution, we seek to elect a new, 21st century Master, to take up post in September 2023.  They should enjoy supporting the shared life of the College, taking an obvious pride in the contributions made by all members, and encouraging interactions between Fellows, students, and staff in ways that deepen a shared commitment to excellence.

We welcome applicants with a distinguished record of achievement from any academic or professional background.  The chosen individual will embody Downing’s collaborative, interdisciplinary values and be committed to preserving a distinctive egalitarian ethos.
