Professor Simon Kennedy joined the University of Glasgow in 2006 as a senior lecturer in the Institute of Cardiovascular & Medical Sciences (ICAMS) and is currently within the School of Cardiovascular & Metabolic Health (SCMH).

He is also a member of the College Appeals panel and external examiner to two other UK universities.

At University level, Professor Kennedy serves as the Senior Senate Assessor for Student Conduct, is one of the elected Senate Assessors on the University Court, and sits on the Education Policy & Strategy Committee, Finance Committee, Estates Committee and the Glasgow University Sports Association (GUSA) Committee.

An active member of the British Pharmacological Society, he serves on their Finance Committee and their Awards Panel. In January 2023 he became Honorary Treasurer of the BPS.

Other external academic associations include being part of the editorial board of two top-ranking pharmacology journals and treasurer of the Scottish Cardiovascular Forum.
