Prof Yoram Gorlizki - personal details
Role: Undergraduate Education Director
I have been at the University of Manchester since 1994, as a Professor since 2006. I did my undergraduate degree at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, before going on to a one year postgraduate Russian language diploma at the University of Strathclyde and a doctorate at St Antony's College, Oxford, under the supervision of Mary McAuley. From 1991-1994 I held a Junior Research Fellowship at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge.
I have been the sole principal investigator on two ESRC grants (R00022676, R000230880), the outputs of both of which were rated as "outstanding" by ESRC assessors, and the recipient of numerous small grants from the British Academy and other bodies. In 2005 my co-authored book Cold Peace won the Alec Nove Prize of the British Association of Slavic and East European Studies for its "outstanding contribution to the field." I am on the Editorial Board of the journal Government and Opposition and was, from 2001-2007, its review editor. I have been a member of the ESRC Politics, Economics and Geography Research College and was, from 2000-2005, Chair of the Validation Panel for the Moscow School of Social Sciences. From 2009-2012 I was Director of Undergraduate Studies at the School of Social Sciences, with overall responsibility for over 3,000 students.
