Reading is investing in a global future to help tackle some of the major issues facing society today.
Our ambitious vision builds on a reputation as one of the strongest research-led universities in the UK, with world leading research in climate change, sustainable buildings and environments, food security and healthy ageing. Excellence with impact is an embedded part of our culture and has global reach through our research and teaching in law, literacy and multilingualism, business and finance.
Reading's vision for the future, led by our recently appointed Vice-Chancellor, Sir David Bell, will be supported by investment in 50 new academic posts over the next 6 months. These will build on recent developments in cross disciplinary research and teaching and will focus around: Climate & Environmental Sciences, Law, Business & Finance, Food Security, Cardiovascular, Metabolic & Neuroscience Biology, Brain Computer Interface and Literacy & Multilingualism.
