Report of the General Board on senior academic promotions

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

1. The second 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)
(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 Statements

3. The Board now recommend the establishment of twenty-five Professorships from 1 October 2004 as set out in Recommendation I. The establishment of these Professorships is proposed on condition that in each case the office which has been held in abeyance during the tenure of the Readership should continue to be held in abeyance during the tenure of the Professorship.

4. The Board also propose the establishment from 1 October 2004 of fifty-two Readerships, as set out in Recommendation II. The establishment of these Readerships, with the exception of that proposed for Dr M. A. S. Blackburn, is proposed on condition that, in each case where the person currently holds a permanently established office, that office should be placed in abeyance during the tenure of the Readership.

In proposing the establishment of a Readership for Dr M. A. S. Blackburn, the General Board and the Council have agreed that it should be tenable for so long as Dr Blackburn continues to hold the office of Keeper of Coins and Medals in the Fitzwilliam Museum and should be assigned to the Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse, and Celtic. The General Board and the Council have accordingly agreed that, in accordance with Statute D, II, 11(b), Dr Blackburn should hold his current curatorial office in the Fitzwilliam Museum concurrently with the proposed Readership.

5. 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.

6. The Board have also agreed, in accordance with Statute D, XVIII, 3 and the special regulation for University Senior Lectureships (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 695), to appoint the thirty-three individuals listed in the Schedule to this Report to University Senior Lectureships.

7. The estimated total additional cost to central funds of the proposals for promotion to personal Professorships and Readerships and of the appointments to University Senior Lectureships of the persons named in this Report will be approximately £713,000 a year.

8. The General Board recommend:

I. That, with effect from 1 October 2004, Professorships be established for named persons for one tenure, placed in Schedule B of the Statutes, and assigned to the Faculty or Department named in each case, as follows:
