250 Great Minds

250 Great Minds

Launched in 2014, Great Minds, the University’s biggest ever recruitment scheme was aimed at who have the potential to make a major contribution to the University’s academic performance and standing.  After successful completion of a structured five year development and induction programme they will be confirmed as an Associate Professor.

The appointments align to core disciplinary strengths and strategies but are typically based in strong cross disciplinary activity or emerging academic platforms and support the major external opportunities and themes for growth identified by the University.

Since 2016, the university has appointed over 150 outstanding individuals from across the globe, a number of which are aligned to LIDA:
