Promotions are based purely on the principle of merit and are decided by a Promotions Committee, with advice from an independent panel of external assessors.

The Vice-Chancellor Professor David Greenaway said: “As always, the process provides the Promotions Committee with real insight into the quality of work undertaken across all of our faculties. For me personally it is a great pleasure to see the level of support so many colleagues received in the expert evaluations provided by reviewers from the UK’s and world’s top Universities.

“I offer my warmest congratulations to all newly promoted staff and wish them well in building further career development on this progression.”
