Jeremy BRADSHAW

Professor Jeremy Bradshaw gained a MA in Zoology from Oxford University in 1981 and, following a year in industry, was awarded a DPhil from the same university in 1985, based upon research carried out in Sir David Phillip's Laboratory of Molecular Biophysics. After a single year of postdoctoral fellowship he took up his first teaching post in the Department of Biochemistry and developed a research programme in biophysical studies of membrane-active peptides. He has published over a hundred papers, articles and reports, mostly based on research carried out at large-sale international facilities, such as ISIS at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, the Institut Laue et Langevin in France and KEK in Japan. He currently holds guest appointments at a number of these facilities worldwide, held a visiting professorship at Fuzhou University China, and currently holds one at Tsukuba University, Japan and Zhejiang University, China.

In 2003 Professor Bradshaw was appointed to the post of Director of Research and Graduate Studies at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, and in 2007 became the Head of the Graduate School of the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, a post he held for two years.

From 2009 to 2013, Professor Bradshaw was Director of Postgraduate Studies for the College and became International Dean and Director of Quality Assurance at the same time. He became Assistant Principal (Researcher Development) in 2013. He is a Fellow of the Society of Biology and, formerly, chaired its Biomedical Sciences Committee. He has been a reviewer of the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) since October 2010 and has conducted reviews in England and Scotland. He has also conducted a number of transnational education reviews for QAA, and has been a reviewer for the Academic Quality Agency for New Zealand Universities, and the Quality Enhancement Framework for Icelandic Higher Education.
