Promotion to Professor

2020 Round

Please note that the 2020 round will be officially opened in early May 2020.  Applicants should read the Information Booklet before completing the relevant application forms.

Applicants are advised to consult extensively with their Head of School and Dean before submitting an application.  To ensure that optimum advice has been received regarding documentation of their case, applicants are asked to submit a final draft copy of their application to their Head of School and Dean prior to submitting an application.  Promotion applications will be assessed entirely on merit.  

No late applications will be accepted. 

Please note however that the time period scheduled for promotion interviews may vary for individual faculties depending upon the availability of the Dean. Applicants are advised to contact the Dean’s unit in advance of organising any planned overseas travel.

An Information Session has been organised by Human Resources to assist potential applicants with the promotion process.  This Information Session will be held on Friday 12 June from 9.00am - 3.30pm in the Council Chamber.  The full program of workshops organised by Human Resources to assist applicants is shown below.
