Some of the faculty’s areas of responsibility are dealt with in subject-specific committees which work on matters delegated from the Faculty Board. These are the Readership Appointments Committee, three health, safety and environment committees and the Gender Equality and Equal Opportunities Committee. The board for research and infrastructure’s task is to ensure that financial and infrastructural resources for research are utilised effectively.
The role of the Academic Appointments Board is to process, announce and propose selections for appointments in all academic staff categories apart from lecturers and postdoctoral research fellows, and its work is regulated by a University Board decision.
The Dean sometimes appoints inquiries and working groups to draw up proposals on specific issues.
