Report of the General Board on senior academic promotions

The GENERAL BOARD beg leave to report to the University as follows:

1. The first exercise under the new arrangements for considering applications for promotion to the offices of Professor, Reader, and University Senior Lecturer (see Reporter, 2002-03, pp. 98 and 389), approved by Grace 7 of 11 December 2002, has been completed. The Board have received an extensive report which included the Minutes of meetings of Faculty Promotions Committees, and of the Board's Senior Academic Promotions Committee and Sub-Committees. The report and the Minutes provided the Board with an account of the procedure followed for the evaluation and comparison of the evidence for all applicants. The Board were able to see how recommendations had been arrived at so that, without repeating the entire exercise itself, they could either approve the recommendations or, if they so wished, consider the basis on which any of the recommendations had been made.

2. The contents of the report were as follows:

(i) Guidance and Procedure (blue booklet) and Main Committee paper MC3
(ii) Minutes of the Main Committee and Sub-Committees
(iii) Summary lists of Faculty Promotions Committee and Sub-Committee evaluations indicating adjustments in evaluations and special and non-standard aspects of applications
(iv) Summary tables giving names of applicants in priority order by Sub-Committee for each of the senior academic offices
(v) Funding and statistical information
(vi) Equal opportunity report on all applications received
(vii) Faculty Promotions Committee Minutes by Sub-Committee grouping
(viii) Feedback

3. The Board now recommend the establishment of thirty-three Professorships from 1 October 2003 and one Professorship from 1 October 2004, as set out in Recommendation I. The establishment of these Professorships is proposed on condition that in each case where the person to be appointed currently holds a Readership or other University office, the office which has been held in abeyance during his or her tenure of the Readership or other University office should continue to be held in abeyance during his or her tenure of the Professorship. The Professorship for Dr C. V. Robinson, who currently holds a senior unestablished appointment, is established for one tenure for a period of five years. The Head of the Department of Chemistry has agreed to meet the full cost of this proposal from funds available to the Department. It is proposed to establish the Professorship for Professor S. B. Laughlin from 1 October 2004 on the cessation of his tenure of the Rank Professorship of Opto-electronics which is a fixed-term Professorship to 30 September 2004.

4. The Board also propose the establishment from 1 October 2003 of forty-nine Readerships, as set out in Recommendation II. The establishment of these Readerships is proposed on condition that, with the exception of those proposed for Dr F. E. Karet, Dr D. C. Rubinsztein, Dr P. Lehner, Dr M. Czosnyka, Dr L. Taub, and Dr D. B. P. A. Norman, in each case where the person to be appointed currently holds a permanently established University office, the office should be held in abeyance during his or her tenure of the Readership. In proposing the establishment of Readerships for Dr L. Taub and Dr D. B. P. A. Norman, the Board have agreed that they should be tenable for so long as Dr Taub and Dr Norman continue to hold the offices of Curator and Director of the Whipple Museum of the History of Science and Curator of the Sedgwick Museum respectively. The Board have accordingly agreed that, in accordance with Statute D, II, 11(b), Dr Taub and Dr Norman should hold their current curatorial offices concurrently with the proposed Readerships.

Dr F. E. Karet, Dr D. C. Rubinsztein, Dr P. Lehner, and Dr M. Czosnyka currently hold senior unestablished appointments. The General Board have agreed to propose the establishment of Readerships for these individuals for a period of five years from 1 October 2003. The Departments concerned have confirmed that funding is available to meet the full cost of appointment to the Readerships established for this period.

5. The Board have ascertained that each of the persons concerned is willing to accept the Professorship or Readership proposed.

6. In order to avoid delay in publishing the Report, the Board have put forward their recommendations before the titles of the Professorships and Readerships have been agreed. The Board will announce these titles at a later date, after consultation with the individuals concerned.

7. The Board have also agreed under Statute D, XVIII, 3 and Grace 7 of 11 December 2002 to appoint the thirty-three individuals listed in the Schedule to this Report to University Senior Lectureships and unestablished Senior Lectureships. In the case of those individuals holding unestablished appointments as Lecturers, appointment is to the unestablished post of Senior Lecturer from 1 October 2003, and the tenure of the appointment is coterminous with the end of the individual's current appointment. The Board have ascertained that each of the persons is willing to accept appointment to the office of University Senior Lecturer or the post of Senior Lecturer, as appropriate.

8. The estimated total cost additional to central funds of the proposals regarding promotion to personal Professorships and Readerships and of the appointment to University Senior Lectureships of those listed in the Schedule to this Report will be approximately £619,000 a year.

9. The General Board recommend:
