Academic Role Models

Congratulations, to the SLMS Academic Role Models! 

Role Models

In 2012 we launched the Academic Role Models project, seeking nominees from a wide range of backgrounds, at different stages in their careers, who all have had a positive impact on others and are passionate about what they do.

The Academic Careers Office are pleased to announce that the SLMS Academic Role Models publication is now available and includes forty role models from across the four Faculties in the School of Life and Medical Sciences. Please click below to view the publication:

Inspirational role models can be any grade, from any background, clinical or non-clinical, from either a teaching or research background. They have a wide variety of characteristics, for example; they may be excellent teachers, excellent communicators who inspire the next generation of future academics, individuals who have accomplished significant achievements and established successful careers against the odds, scientific researchers of international repute or researchers involved in projects which are of direct benefit to our local communities and those who balance research with NHS commitments.

Role Models are individuals who influence the career choices of others, have a positive attitude towards junior colleagues, have a commitment for excellence and growth, affect the attitudes, behaviours and outlook of others and essentially, emulate and stimulate those around them. We have collected our first set of Academic Role Models in a publication designed to inform and encourage those individuals who are interested in teaching and/or research to actively investigate academic career options open to them. 

Thank you to everyone who submitted an nomination.
