The University has confirmed the results of the 2019/20 promotions round for our academic community.  150 colleagues have secured promotion to Professor, Associate Professor, Principal Research Fellow, Assistant Professor and Senior Research Fellow.

The Vice-Chancellor and University Executive Board members extend their warmest congratulations to colleagues across the University. You can see the full list of promotions here.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Shearer West congratulated everyone who has secured promotion this year. She said:

“I am very pleased that the talent of our academic community is recognised in this way and wish to congratulate every colleague who has secured promotion this year. Promotions have been secured on merit across a wide range of disciplines, schools and faculties, and are testament to the quality and commitment of our colleagues engaged in research and teaching.”

Analysis of this year’s promotion round shows that the number of colleagues from minority ethnic backgrounds securing promotion increased by 4 percentage points to 16.7% of all promotions – rising from 19 individuals in 2018/19 to 25 in 2019/20.

Professor West added:

“I am particularly pleased to note further increases in the proportion of colleagues from black and minority ethnic backgrounds who have been promoted. This will support our continued drive to ensure that our University recognises, supports and benefits from the contribution of our talent wherever it is found.”
