Professor Gavin Stamp, the architectural historian and Britain's foremost Alexander 'Greek' Thomson champion, has accepted a prestigious research post at the University of Cambridge.
It is not clear whether Stamp's decision to assume the Mellon Fellowship means he will be forced to quit Glasgow's Mackintosh School of Architecture.
However, the University of Cambridge has confirmed that he will be taking up the 'visiting fellowship' for the 2003-04 academic year and will be working out of Gonville and Caius College.
Stamp - who first studied at Cambridge - is also chairman of the Twentieth Century Society and is a member of the Historic Buildings and Areas Committee of English Heritage. He curated the Thomson exhibition in Glasgow in 1999.
