'New Blood' at the University of Leicester

When the Times Higher Education Supplement short listed the University of Leicester for the award of Higher Education Institution of the Year 2005 it described us as “a strong research institution with excellent teaching that hid its light under a bushel”. In 2006 we set out to change just one thing – no more bushels.

We are proud of the standard of our teaching and research. Our research council income per member of staff places us within the top 20 UK universities. Leicester has been ranked first for two consecutive years for student satisfaction and teaching quality by the National Student Survey amongst mainstream English Universities.

New Blood Lectureships are an exciting new development here at University of Leicester. One of the main aims of the new roles is to make a significant contribution to the University’s’ aim to enhance its research excellence, producing research of the highest standard. At the beginning of the 2005/2006 academic year a full page message was placed across academic media, calling for the leading researchers of tomorrow. Twenty-one high quality individuals were called for to fill these new positions.
