by Nicola Ranson

During 2014, City University London celebrated the promotion of fifty academic staff. The promotions acknowledged staff achievements and contributions to research, education and professional practice.

A full list of the 2014 academic promotions can be found here.

Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Paul Curran, said: "I would like to offer my congratulations to all who were promoted last year. Such promotions reflect City's commitment to academic excellence and the outstanding contributions of our staff."

Among those who were promoted is Dr Rachael-Anne Knight of the School of Health Sciences who was promoted to Associate Professor of Phonetics. She joined City in 2005 after working at the University of Roehampton, UCL and the University of Cambridge. Dr Knight was also recently appointed Interim Associate Dean for Education Technology and Innovation.

Speaking of her time at City, Dr Knight commented: "since joining City I have held two roles as Programme Director, been involved in ethics and teaching committees, published student textbooks and journal articles and received a couple of research grants. Last year I decided that this was a good profile to apply for promotion and was delighted when my application was successful."

Rachael-Anne added: "soon after my promotion I was asked to hold the Associate Dean role on an interim basis. This was unexpected but I am enjoying it immensely and am excited to be working with staff on new educational initiatives.
