Promotion to Professor (Scale 2)

Dear Colleagues,

The call for Promotion to Professor (Scale 2) is currently open and will close at 12 noon (sharp) on Thursday, 7th November 2019.

Please note that this is now a two-step application process, with the first step requiring submission of an Expression of Interest and a concise five page CV template in order to establish a prima facie case for promotion and to be shortlisted for full application stage.  Applications will only be considered via the e-recruitment portal.

Once you log into the “Promotion to Professor (Scale 2) – Stage 1” competition via e-recruitment, the CV template is located on the drop-down menu on the left-hand side in the Current Vacancy Details. This template may not be altered and should be used to highlight any activities and achievements as they relate to the criteria outlined in Appendix B of the Regulation on Academic Promotions to Professor (Scale 2). Applicants are instructed to list their top five publications on the final page of the CV template (page 6).

No applications will be considered by the Board if they have not been fully submitted through the e-recruitment portal by the closing time and date.

A number of briefing sessions took place throughout September and October 2019.  We would strongly advise all potential applicants to read all of the supporting documentation (see below or click here) including the presentation slides from the briefings, FAQ’s and the Regulation in advance of submitting an application.

Please direct any enquiries you may have to our dedicated mailbox at  

Kind regards,
