As part of this year's Senior Academic Promotions round, Sabine Bahn has been promoted to Professor and Alex Routh has been promoted to Reader.
Head of Department Professor Nigel Slater said, "I congratulate Sabine and Alex for their outstanding achievements.
I should add that it has given me great pleasure to see the careers of all our academic staff progress over the years and I am as pleased for those that have been promoted as I am proud of those that I know from their achievements will certainly be promoted in the coming years. The Department derives immense benefit from them all."
Professor Bahn directs the Cambridge Centre for Neuropsychiatric Research, working to define the molecular basis of schizophrenia and bipolar affective disorder.
Dr Routh leads the colloid science group in the department and film formation is one of their major areas of research.
