Academic Promotion to Professor (Level E) 2012
Thursday, 04 October 2012
It is my pleasure to announce Caroline Barratt-Pugh (Professor of Early Childhood Education) and Daniel Galvão (Professor of Exercise and Sports Science) as successful applicants in this year’s academic promotion round, to Professor (Level E). I congratulate them on their success and I thank them for their sustained contributions to ECU in a variety of scholarly ways at a very high level.
Many of you will be aware of the rigorous evaluation academic staff face when they apply for promotion to Professor (Level E). Recently, the Professorial Appointment Committee met to assess applications for promotion to the professoriate in 2012.
Here, I acknowledge that whilst it is easy to celebrate success in being promoted, it is also the case that high performing staff who, for one or more reasons, do not succeed with their application are likely to feel immense disappointment. ECU always strives to give helpful feedback to unsuccessful candidates to help them adjust and reprioritise their professional activities, within the framework of their existing job, so that they may be successful next time.
Promotion to Senior Lecturer (Level C) and Associate Professor (Level D) are close to being finalised and will be announced in the next two to three weeks.
