Movement within Academic Pathways

The procedure for movement within the academic career pathway framework depends on the profile level:

To profile level b

Separate arrangements apply for movement from level a to b (i.e. to Senior Research Associate/Senior Teaching Associate).  The Progression Procedure does not apply in these cases.

To profile level c and d1  (Progression)

Movement up to profile level c (Lecturer/Research Fellow/Teaching Fellow) and level d1 (Senior Lecturer/Senior Research Fellow/Senior Teaching Fellow) for staff in progressable roles is covered by the University’s Progression Procedure.

To profile level d2 and e (Promotion)

Movement to profile level d2 (Reader) and level e (Professor) is via the University’s Promotion Procedure.

Within profile level e (Grade M)

There are separate procedures in place for movement of staff within level e (grade M).
