Academic Promotions

As part of our commitment to retaining and developing excellent academic staff and to recognise and reward quality, innovation and leadership, we are pleased to launch the 2020 call for applications for Academic Promotion to the grade of Associate Professor.
The closing date for receipt of applications is Friday, 26th February 2021 at 23:59hours. Please note that applications received after this deadline will not be accepted. 
For colleagues who are considering applying for promotion to Associate Professor, you are encouraged to read the promotion scheme, the briefing document, the guidance document, and frequently asked questions in advance of completing your application. All the documents are available on this webpage via the links below.
Colleagues should note the University’s commitment to an annual call for promotion to Associate Professor.
Briefing Sessions have been arranged for January 2021, where members of the University leadership team will be available to provide further guidance on the application process and the published documents. These will be group sessions on MS Teams, which will outline the application process and key points to consider in making an application. Each session will be 1 to 1.5 hours in duration. It is important that attendees familiarise themselves with the published materials in advance of their attendance.
You must reserve a place at one of these sessions in order to attend. All bookings should be made by completing this booking form. Registration is now open for a Briefing Session scheduled for 15th January 2021.
