Juno assessment panel

The Practitioner and Champion awards are assessed by the Juno Assessment Panel, which meets twice per year.

The Panel comprises a Chair and at least five other members. With the approval of the Chair of the Panel, and the IOP Diversity and Inclusion Committee, panel members are drawn from Juno Champion and Practitioner departments. The Panel shall include at least two academic physicists and one non-academic physicist. There shall be at least one man and one woman on the Panel.  

The current members of the Juno Assessment Panel are:

  • Professor Brian Fulton, University of York (Chair)
  • Dr Tracey Berry, Royal Holloway, University of London
  • Professor Malcolm Cooper, University of Warwick
  • Dr Susanne Klein, HP Labs Bristol
  • Dr Robert Nyman, Imperial College London
  • Professor Valerie Gibson, University of Cambridge
  • Elizabeth Whitelegg, Open University
  • Professor Eithne McCabe, Trinity College Dublin

The Panel will review the evidence that a department or school has submitted and will agree whether to award Practitioner or Champion. The Panel’s decision is final. 

If you are awarded Practitioner status, you will be given two years in which to apply for the Champion award. Of course, there is nothing to stop you applying for Champion earlier than this, or even in the same year as Practitioner. If you are not ready to apply for Champion status at the end of the two years you are eligible for one two year renewal of your Practitioner status.

If you are awarded Champion status, you will have to renew this every three years. The Diversity Team will give you information on how you should do this.

If your application for Practitioner or Champion is unsuccessful, your Supporter of Practitioner status will be automatically renewed for a further two years, within which time you will be expected to reapply for the award. The Diversity Team will support you as much as it can to achieve this.

The deadlines for Juno Practitioner and Champion applications are:

  • Friday 14 November 2014
  • Friday 1 May 2015
  • Friday 20 November 2015

If you are planning on making a submission, please get in touch with the Diversity Team as soon as possible so that we can give you advice and guidance on the application process.
