Director, Humanities Cultural Programme, Schwarzman Centre

AEM International are excited to be searching for the inaugural Director for the Humanities Cultural Programme at the new Schwarzman Centre for the Humanities at the University of Oxford

Thanks to a landmark £175 million gift from businessman and philanthropist Stephan A. Schwarzman, the Schwarzman Centre will bring together the university’s Humanities faculties under one roof for the first time, alongside the Ethics in AI Institute, the Oxford Internet Institute, and a major Humanities library. At the heart of the building will be a suite of performing arts venues and public spaces, including a 500-seat concert hall, a 250-seat theatre, a black-box experimental performance lab, a rehearsal hall (which can be used for dance), a cinema with 35mm projection facilities, and an exhibition hall and café.

The Humanities Division is looking to appoint the Director in the run-up to the building opening in summer 2025 and in its early seasons.

This is an exciting and unique opportunity to establish a world-class, multi-discipline arts programme in a brand new building with Oxford’s first concert hall at the centre of it.
