Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

The School of Physics is committed to good employment practices and a supportive working environment for all staff. In particular we are striving to address the unequal representation of women in science and to improve career progression for female academics.

The School holds an Athena SWAN bronze award. The Equality Challenge Unit's Athena SWAN Charter recognises commitment to advancing women's careers in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment in higher education and research.

Please take a look at our most recent application

The aim of the Institute of Physics Juno awards is to recognise and reward departments that can demonstrate they have taken action to address the under-representation of women in university physics and to encourage better practice for both women and men.
