Senate election results

Following a ballot of all academic and research staff in each of the three Faculties, the following staff have been elected to Senate, the body responsible for monitoring standards in teaching and promoting research, with effect from 1 September 2018. 

  • Faculty of Science and Engineering – Professor Philippa Browning, School of Physics and Astronomy; Professor Jitesh Gajjar, School of Mathematics; Professor Uli Sattler, School of Computer Science; Dr Gianpaolo Vignali, School of Materials. Each will serve from 1 September 2018 to 31 August 2021.
  • Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health Dr Sarah Cotterill, School of Health Sciences; Professor John Aplin, School of Medical Sciences; Dr Nicola High, School of Biological Sciences; Dr Ellen Schafheutle, School of Health Sciences.  Each will serve from 1 September 2018 to 31 August 2021. Dr Anna Woollams (School of Biological Sciences) will serve from 1 September 2018 to 31 August 2020, due to a member of Senate in the Faculty leaving the University part way through their term - a place for a two-year term therefore arose.
  • Faculty of Humanities – Ms Zahra Alija, School of Environment, Education and Development; Dr Adam Ozanne, School of Social Sciences; Professor Debra Howcroft, Alliance Manchester Business School; Dr Wiebke Brockhaus Grand, School of Arts, Languages and Cultures; Dr Stephen Mossman, School of Arts, Languages and Cultures.  Each will serve from 1 September 2018 to 31 August 2021.
