Recognising Excellence in Academia/

Academic Career Map


The Academic Career Map (ACM) is a framework to set out relevant expectations, support development and recognise achievements at each academic career stage (Lecturer/Research Associate/Research Fellow; Senior Lecturer/Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow; Reader and Chair) and will include indicative examples of work activities, standards and behaviours.  It will come into effect for the 2019/20 academic year.

The project team held several staff engagement and consultation events throughout November and December, and received some helpful feedback.  A few amendments have been proposed to the ACM as a result and the ACM will now go to the relevant committees for formal consultation and approval between January and May.  Further detailed guidance to accompany the ACM is also being developed.
