Academic staff

Academic members of staff must write to the Secretary to the Medical Sciences Division and their Head of Department, to inform them of their intention to resign.

The appropriate period of notice (as specified in the contract of employment) must be followed.  For academic staff this would usually

(a) be at least three months and

(b) include one complete Full Term.

The conditions under which the University may in certain circumstances terminate an appointment are laid down in Statute XII of the Statutes of the University. Separate procedures are involved in respect of the college appointment. The college may make available to the University any relevant information arising from such college procedures.
