Associate Professor title

Arrangements are currently being made for the introduction of the title of Associate Professor for academic roles at grade 9.

The University is currently working to agree a timescale and process for moving existing grade 9 academic staff, and for making new academic grade 9 appointments and promotions, to the new title.

As part of this process existing Senior Lecturers or Readers will be allowed to retain their existing title or can choose to switch to the new title. Grade 9 staff in research focused roles may be able to transfer to the Associate Professor title where they can demonstrate that they have made a sufficient contribution to learning and teaching and teaching focused staff may be able to transfer to the new title where they can demonstrate a sufficient contribution to research or scholarship.

Policies and procedures will be updated to reflect this change.

Full details of the process will be communicated to affected grade 9 staff in due course.

More information will be available on the HR web pages.
