Recruitment drive on Professorships and lecturer posts

Date 11.11.2015

The new positions will further add to the University’s academic and entrepreneurial talent. The Chairs in Health are co-funded by Northamptonshire NHS and represent an £800k investment; they are also supported by partnership with Moulton College.

Professor Nick Petford, Vice Chancellor, The University of Northampton, said:

These new posts show that despite the challenging times ahead, the University is in a position to invest in new talent for the future.

The external funding for the healthcare Professorships are especially welcome, not just as a show of trust in the excellent work we do in this area but in allowing us to develop new capacity that has real benefit for the University and local community.
