The Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) invites nominations and applications for the position of vice chancellor for administration and finance (VCAF).
JTS is a preeminent institution of Jewish higher education that integrates rigorous academic scholarship and teaching with a commitment to strengthening Jewish tradition, Jewish lives, and Jewish communities. A Jewish university with a world-class faculty and a diverse student body, JTS grants undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees through its five schools and offers enriching programs for the Jewish community in the United States, Israel, and around the world. JTS trains thoughtful, innovative leaders—rabbis, cantors, educators, lay leaders, and scholars—serving the Jewish people.
JTS, located in New York City, seeks an entrepreneurial leader with strong financial, strategic, operational, and interpersonal capabilities to serve as a member of the executive leadership team as the vice chancellor for administration and finance. Reporting to Chancellor Shuly Rubin Schwartz, the VCAF provides the leadership and strategic vision needed for the business functions of JTS as well as institution-wide oversight for human resources, finance, facilities management, informational technology, and legal.
The VCAF will play a significant role in shaping the next chapter for an institution with tremendous momentum under the leadership of a new chancellor and with the resources of its recently opened 21st Century Campus in the Morningside Heights neighborhood of Manhattan. Working with JTS’s operating budget of $38 million, $150 million endowment, and 200 full- and part-time employees, and in collaboration with the chancellor, senior administration colleagues, administrative staff, and the board of trustees, the VCAF will contribute to institutional strategy formation as JTS moves into the future with optimism and strength.
It is JTS policy that all employees and applicants for employment are afforded equal opportunities for employment, without regard to race, color, creed, religion, disability, age, sex, national origin, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other factors as prohibited by law.
