Nineteen new Associate Professors for Health Sciences

A swathe of the University of Otago Division of Health Science’s finest staff have been promoted to Associate Professor.

Nineteen people have received the promotion, and will begin their new roles on 1 February next year.

Division of Health Sciences Pro-Vice-Chancellor Professor Paul Brunton says the promotions reflect the calibre of staff in the Division.

“I am delighted to see so many colleagues being promoted this year. It is a real celebration of the academic excellence and diversity in the Division of Health Sciences.”

Professor Brunton says not only is becoming an Associate Professor an important milestone in the career of an academic, it is also an indication of somebody who is on a projection to a professorship in due course.

“It is a recognition of their academic leadership in both research and teaching with a significant contribution to service as well.”
