Elections by Congregation: Statute XII Pool for Constituting Panels (MPLS Constituency)

General Information about this constituency

This constituency is comprised of 4 members of Congregation to whom Statute XII applies, to represent the Division of Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences (MPLS), elected by members of Congregation.

Elections to this constituency restrict candidates to those members of Congregation to whom Statute XII applies (that is: professors, readers, associate professors or lecturers; any employee of the University who is a member of the Universities Superannuation Scheme or who would be a member if he or she had not been exempted under the provisions of Statute XIV; and the Vice-Chancellor to the extent and in the manner set out in Part G of Statute XII).

This means that all members of Congregation are eligible to nominate a candidate or to vote, but prospective candidates who want to stand for election must be a member of Congregation to whom Statute XII applies. By convention, it is expected that candidates for election to represent this constituency will also be a member of the Division of Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences.

The full term of office is three years (or less, when a by-election is held to fill the residue of the term of office for an elected member who is standing down early).

 

Further information about the Pool

Members of the Pool will be chosen by lot to serve on a number of Panels under Statute XII (i.e. Redundancy Panel (Section 14 (6)), Staff Employment Review Panel (Section 35) and University Appeal Panel (Section 52 (2))) and may be expected to also chair a Panel. Each member of the Pool will be required to attend appropriate training, including on equality and diversity, before serving on a Panel.

College staff are not covered by Statute XII as colleges have their own statutes. The exception is college staff at Kellogg, St Cross and Parks, which follow the University's statutes. Any staff holding joint appointments will, however, be covered by Statute XII in respect of their University contract of employment and duties.

The terms of reference and membership of this body are set out in Council Regulations 3 of 2017
