The university runs an annual Professorial Call, in which members of staff can apply to be considered for the title of Professor or Associate Professor. The Professorial Conferment Committee (PCC) has responsibility for recommending to Academic Board the names of individuals who are to be conferred with Professorships and Associate Professorships.

When a call for applications is made, the PCC welcomes applications from any member of staff who feels that he or she meets the eligibility criteria as set out in the Conferment Guidelines. The Guidelines for the 2018 Professorial Call, which include the conferment criteria, can be found here.

Applications should be submitted to before the deadline of noon on Friday 16th March 2018. Applications received after this deadline cannot be considered.

A guide to Frequently Asked Questions can be found here. However, if you have any further questions about the process, please contact the PCC secretary Cathal Rogers (
