Changing to the title of Associate Professor

Further to recent communications from the Provost, Professor Mark Peel, colleagues will be aware that the academic career structure has been revised.  As a result, all new academic appointments at grade 9 will be made to the post of Associate Professor.

Existing academic staff at grade 9 (and the clinical equivalents) have been given the option to retain their existing title (which will either be Senior Lecturer or Reader).  Colleagues who wish to retain their existing job title must complete the on-line form below no later than Friday 26 August 2016.  At this stage, all current Senior Lecturers and Readers who have not elected to notify us that they wish to retain their current title, will be transferred to the new title of Associate Professor.

This change does not alter your contract type or job family - for example, if you are in the Teaching and Research job family, you will remain in this job family.  This change is related solely to job title.

To confirm, if you complete this form, your existing title of either Senior Lecturer or Reader will not be updated to Associate Professor, which is the new title for academic staff in grade 9 (and the clinical equivalents).
