Professional services staff in the College of Humanities.

New appointments in the College of Humanities

The College of Humanities continues to go from strength to strength as we welcome new staff across our disciplines.

This enables us to continue to explore fresh interdisciplinary activity in both education and research, which is already paying dividends in new curriculum and research projects

They join our already established staff body, who are renowned yearly by the Student Guild's annual teaching awards for their excellence in teaching, research and the support they offer our students.

In addition to these academic roles, we have also had some new joiners and changes to roles in our support teams, which will allow us to drive the range of services we provide for our students.

The College is pleased to welcome a team of four new Graduate Project Officers who have joined the professional support in the College to enhance our local support.  Under the University’s Graduate Business Partnership scheme, the College has employed our own recent graduates to aid various administrative portfolios as well as supporting ad hoc reviews, research and analysis. This innovative scheme contributes to employability and student engagement, and provides talented graduates with a one year internship to help them achieve their long term professional career plans.  Please join the College in extending a warm welcome to these staff and helping them to settle in.

Professor Nick Kaye, Dean for the College of Humanities and Professor of Performance Studies, comments, "I am delighted to be able to welcome so many new colleagues to Humanities' disciplines and in Professional Services. This very significant expansion of staff marks an important moment in the development of the College of Humanities and of our academic and professional community more broadly, as well as opportunities for collaboration and new developments in teaching and research."
