Two Fellows, Dr Anton Enright and Dr Pedro Ramos Pinto, have been given senior academic appointments in the latest promotion round at the University of Cambridge.

The purpose of the Academic Careers Pathways (ACP) Scheme is to recognise and reward outstanding contributions and celebrate academic achievement. 

Assessment is based on contributions in: research and research leadership; teaching and/or researcher development; and service to the University and to the academic community more broadly.

The Master of Trinity Hall, Mary Hockaday, welcomed the promotions, saying: “My warm congratulations to Anton and Pedro. It is wonderful to see two of our Fellows, in very different disciplines, Pathology and History, be recognised in this way.

“Trinity Hall’s students and the whole community benefits from their commitment to academic excellence in research, teaching and service and we are delighted for them.”

Both Drs Enright and Pinto have been awarded professorship (grade 11) in this round of the ACP Scheme, taking effect 1 October 2024.

Dr Pedro Ramos Pinto is a Staff Fellow in History at Trinity Hall. He is a historian of 20th-century Europe, particularly Southern Europe with interests in the histories of inequality, welfare and social movements. His first book, Lisbon Rising (2013) examined the emergence and role of social movements of the urban poor during Portugal’s Carnation Revolution (1974-1976).

Dr Anton Enright is a Staff Fellow in Pathology and Director of Studies in Natural Sciences (Biology) at Trinity Hall. He works at the Department of Pathology where his lab does research in RNA Biology, Genomics and Computational Biology. The lab group are currently working on understanding how molecules like microRNAs interact with mRNAs across biology and disease.
