Provost’s Visiting Professor (PVP) Programme
Building a diverse community of staff and students is one of the cornerstones of Imperial’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy . Our Provost’s Visiting Professor (PVP) Programme, has been established to improve the diversity of our community by bringing to Imperial leading academics who will contribute to the community through scholarship, teaching and programming aligned with their research. Four Provost’s Visiting Professors were recruited from the first round of applications last year and will be joining Imperial over the coming months, discover more about newly appointed Provost’s Visiting Professors.
The PVP programme is one component of Imperial’s Race Equality Charter actions (REC) endorsed by the UK’s national scheme to improve the representation, progression and success of minority ethnic staff and students within higher education. This programme will facilitate engagement with under-represented groups at pre-college, undergraduate, graduate, postdoctoral and faculty levels, with the longer-term aim of increasing the number of academics from under-represented groups.
PVP Professors will participate in the College by appointment in a host department on the basis of both of their proposed research programme and their plans for engagement with the wider College community through, for example, lectures and seminars in academic courses, well-publicised general-audience or public lectures, conducting workshops, or meeting with students and staff across the campuses.
Applications are invited for the visiting professorships from scholars with international reputations in their fields. Due to the aim of this programme we are specifically looking for candidates from underrepresented groups such as Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) and female scholars. The rolling programme will host up to four new visitors per year with appointments lasting between 6 and 12 months funded by the College. Salary costs within Imperial College London appointment rates will be covered, along with a contribution towards travel costs.
Applications for this cohort are now closed. Further details will follow on our next intake later this year.
