Chancellor’s winners announced
Jenny Culbertson is one of four University staff members honoured with a Chancellor's Award for their teaching, research excellence and impact
Alan Convery, Jenny Culbertson, Charles ffrench-Contant, and Richard Mellanby were announced as winners of the 2019 Chancellor's Awards at a gala dinner held at the Palace of Holyrood House on 2 October.
Established in 2003, the Chancellor’s Awards now reward staff in four categories for teaching, research, impact and showing great potential in early career research.
Dr Jennifer Culbertson, Reader in Linguistics and English Language in the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences received the Rising Star Chancellor’s Award.
The Award recognises her outstanding contribution towards enhancing the research reputation of the University, both nationally and internationally, through ground-breaking research that has led to fundamental advances in our understanding of how language is shaped by the way in which the human minds work.
I'm extremely honoured to receive this award, and excited to continue contributing to the excellent research culture of this international university as a transplant from the US who has happily made Edinburgh my home.
