Associate Professor title

Since 1 March 2012, new academic appointments and promotions to grade 9 have had the title Associate Professor. In April 2012, grade 9 academic staff who were in post were given the option to transfer to the new title through a short application process. This transfer route is now closed.

Progression to grade 9, Associate Professor is available via the University promotions process. 

Current grade 9 staff in a research focused or teaching focused role who feel they have a portfolio which aligns to Associate Professor, should have a discussion with their Head of School. It might be possible to transfer to the Associate Professor title by demonstrating (in addition to the main focus of the role) sufficient contribution to learning and teaching, or to research or scholarship – as appropriate.

Please contact the Head of HR, or HR Manager in your area for more information.

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