Promotion to Senior Lecturer


Dear colleagues,

Further to our email of 18th of December 2019, we are pleased to confirm that Governing Body, at its meeting of 4th February 2020,  approved the UMTO proposal for a second round of Promotion to Senior Lecturer. Governing Body has approved 40 posts for this next round of Promotion to Senior Lecturer.     

We expect the call for promotion to Senior Lecturer to issue in early April 2020 with an anticipated mid - May deadline for submission of Expressions of Interest (Stage 1). Those shortlisted at Stage 1 can expect an Autumn deadline for invited Full Applications (Stage 2 ). All information and documentation relating to the call, including submission date, will be made available at the time of the actual call. As in the previous round a series of briefing sessions for academic staff will be organised by HR and communicated with the call.   

Please direct any enquiries you may have in the interim to

We look forward to updating you further in the near future.

Best wishes,

John O’Halloran and Barry O’Brien
