Brian May to be next Chancellor of LJMU
A University's Chancellor plays a vital role in making the institution more well known, and acts as an ambassador for the University and its staff and students. Brian will be installed as the fourth Chancellor of Liverpool John Moores University during a special ceremony early in the new year.
Brian studied Astrophysics at Imperial College, London and gained his degree around 1970. He put his academic career on hold to concentrate on his musical ambitions, but more than 30 years later, in October 2007, Brian completed a PhD (higher degree) during which he conducted several years of research looking at the movements of dust within the Solar System.
