4.1 Academic Staff: Teaching
In the Medical School, Academic Staff: Teaching consists of two ranks, Lecturer and Senior Lecturer.
Individuals appointed as Lecturer or as Senior Lecturer are not members of the Academic Council; they are, therefore, not normally eligible to act as principal investigators on sponsored research projects (see the Research Policy Handbook for information about principal investigatorship). Lecturers and Senior Lecturers are not eligible to take sabbatical leaves.
In general and for the terms of appointment for Academic Staff: Teaching, see the University Faculty Handbook.
