He held the Chair of Semitic Languages at SOAS and was appointed Emeritus Professor of Semitic Languages and Ethiopian Studies on his retirement in 1982. Professor Ullendorff was a Fellow of the British Academy and the Accademia Lincei. He was an Honorary Fellow of the Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies and a long term member of Wolfson College.
