Press Release - 13 April 2005

University of Bath to make 29 new appointments

The University of Bath is to fund 29 new academic posts and 50 new postgraduate research studentships in an expansion of its research and teaching costing £1.25 million.

Among the appointments will be eight new professors in computational chemistry, architecture, manufacturing, engineering design, machine systems, sport and exercise science, healthcare management and pharmaceutical sciences.

Over £100,000 has also been allocated to the Library for electronic material collection to allow development of the University's infrastructure support for research information.

Figures published recently showed that the University’s financial position had improved, with a £1 million surplus recorded for the year ending in July 2004. The University is investing this surplus in further strengthening its academic capacity.

As well as the professorial chairs, there are 21 readerships, fellowships and lectureships in a variety of subjects from international development to mathematical biology. The 50 postgraduate research posts are also across a variety of subjects.

The posts are advertised in this week’s Times Higher Education Supplement.

Professor Glynis Breakwell, the University’s Vice-Chancellor, said: “The University already recruits from among the best staff and students across the world. New staff will have the talent to thrive in our culture, with personal aspirations that align with the University’s ambitions.

“These posts are made possible by the favourable financial position of the University, achieved through sound management and financial controls.

"By ensuring that the University works as efficiently as possible, we have made possible a large expansion of our academic structure, including some senior posts.

“This will mean that the University remains listed in the top dozen in the country and continues to be internationally known for the excellence of its research and teaching.”

The University of Bath is one of the UK's leading universities, with an international reputation for quality research and teaching. View a full list of the University's press releases:
