Project Juno

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Sussex is a supporter of Project Juno, an initiative of the Institute of Physics encouraging good practice for management for all staff in university Physics departments.

The Five Principles of the Project Juno Code of Practice:

Principle 1: A robust organisational framework to deliver equality of opportunity and reward.

Principle 2: Appointment, promotion and selection processes and procedures that encourage both men and women to apply for academic posts at all levels.

Principle 3: Departmental structures and systems that support and encourage the career progression of all staff and enable both men and women to progress and continue in their careers.

Principle 4: Departmental organisation, structure, management arrangements and culture that are open, inclusive and transparent and encourage the participation of all staff.

Principle 5: Flexible approaches and provisions that encompass the working day, the working year and a working life in SET and enable individuals, at all career and life stages, to maximise their contribution to SET, their department and institution.
