The University of Reading has appointed marine archaeologist Robert Van de Noort as its next vice-chancellor.

“I feel hugely privileged to take on the role of vice-chancellor of the University of Reading,” Van de Noort said in a statement. “We have a proud history and we will continue to play a critical role as a respected national and global research and teaching institution. I also want us to be more embedded in our local community—a valued partner and source of pride for Reading.”
