Appointments


Newcastle University

Frank Mueller

Business schools have a key part to play in restoring faith in an embattled banking sector, according to Frank Mueller, Newcastle University Business School's new professor of strategy and international business. "If you watch programmes like Question Time, a lot of people have lost trust with politicians, the financial elite and senior executives," he said. "Business schools have a role in re-establishing that trust. Ordinary people (are asking), why have these people been paid what they are paid? Are they doing a good job for society? These issues should inform our teaching and research." He added that businesses were like universities in that they operate in a product and labour market. "If you are seen to be behaving in a not responsible way (as a university) you might fail in the product market - (students) won't pick up your product - and in the labour market, by not recruiting top-class people," he said. Professor Mueller joins Newcastle from the University of St Andrews, where he was professor of management. He has also held positions at the University of Leicester, the University of Oxford, Royal Holloway, University of London, Aston University and London Business School. He holds an MA from the University of Konstanz and an MSc and a DPhil from Oxford.

University of Lincoln

Tryphon Lambrou

A newly appointed lecturer in computer science who swapped University College London for the University of Lincoln said that making the transition from a large city to a smaller one did not present a problem. "I did my master's up in Aberdeen, so it wasn't the first time that I've been in a smaller town," said Tryphon Lambrou, who specialises in medical imaging and signal/image processing. Noting that he has found the people of Lincoln to be more friendly than some of their counterparts in the capital, Dr Lambrou said that one of the attractive aspects of joining the institution was its rapid progress up league tables due to "aggressive recruitment" from research-intensive universities. Being surrounded by academics who had come from UK institutions with a high degree of global recognition created a "dynamic environment" at Lincoln, he said, adding that he was keen to set up research collaborations with local hospitals. Dr Lambrou gained a BSc in medical instrumentation engineering from the Technological Educational Institute of Athens in Greece before moving to the UK to complete an MSc at the University of Aberdeen and then a doctorate at University College London.

Edge Hill University

Owen Evans

A newly appointed professor of film at Edge Hill University has said that his appointment was "one of those things I probably never thought I was going to achieve" when he began his academic career. "You talk to people and meet professors, and they seem very experienced, and when you're a young academic you aspire to that, but it was not something I genuinely thought would ever happen," said Owen Evans, who was given the chair at the end of last year. Professor Evans joined Edge Hill in 2011 from Swansea University, where he took his undergraduate degree and his PhD in German studies. He said he was looking forward to developing his field's research profile at Edge Hill and that he was especially keen to work with different disciplines to complement his own diverse background in film, languages, literature and history. "I've grown up in a system where it's publish or perish," he said. "Here it's a bit more enabling, I think. There's a willingness to try things that might not work, and not quite the same pressure to always achieve those results. …
