Role Description

Department

The Department of Language and Linguistic Science is seeking to appoint two Associate Lecturers. One will specialise in phonetics/phonology and the other in sociolinguistics.  Both posts are fixed term for 12 months.

The position of Associate Lecturer in Phonetics and Phonology will contribute to teaching from 1 September 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position of Associate Lecturer in Sociolinguistics will contribute to teaching from January 2022.

Role

You will play a full part in teaching, supervision and administration in the Department, with particular responsibility for teaching in phonetics/phonology (in the position of Associate Lecturer in Phonetics/Phonology) or sociolinguistics (in the position of Associate Lecturer in Sociolinguistics) on our programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Skills, Experience & Qualification needed for the Associate Lecturer in Phonetics/Phonology

You are an early-career academic, with a PhD in Linguistics or closely related field, who is committed to excellence in teaching and supervision. You will have specialist knowledge in phonetics and phonology. We would especially welcome someone with the ability to deliver training in phonetic observation and transcription. Familiarity with English phonetics is essential but knowledge of languages other than English would be an asset. Members of the Department frequently combine phonetics and phonology with other areas of linguistics, such as conversation analysis, sociolinguistics or child language acquisition, and we would welcome someone who can contribute to one of these sub-areas within linguistics. Experience of interacting with students and providing guidance on their projects is an advantage. 

Skills, Experience & Qualification needed for the Associate Lecturer in Sociolinguistics

You are an early-career academic, with a PhD in Linguistics or closely related field, who is committed to excellence in teaching and supervision. You will have specialist knowledge in sociolinguistics as well as in a range of research techniques and methodologies. We particularly welcome candidates with research and teaching interests that will relate to the department’s research portfolio in one or more of the following areas: language variation and change, sociolinguistics, varieties of English.

Interview date: W/C 19 July 2021
