Associate Professor title

University Senate has agreed the use of the Associate Professor title for grade 9 academic staff.

From 1 March 2012, new academic appointments and promotions to grade 9 have had the title Associate Professor and from 1 April 2012 current grade 9 academic staff have been able to transfer to the new title:

  • If you are currently a Senior Lecturer or Reader you can either keep your existing title or you have the choice to move to the new Associate Professor title.
  • If you are grade 9 and in a research focused role you may be able to transfer to the Associate Professor title by demonstrating that you have made a sufficient contribution to learning and teaching.
  • If you are grade 9 and in a teaching focused role you may be able to transfer to the Associate Professor title by demonstrating that you have made a sufficient contribution to research or scholarship.

Full details of the process and associated forms are available below.

For clarification purposes, the Associate Professor title is linked to the role and isn’t an individual or personal title.
