Lecturer in Sociophonetics

Victoria University of Wellington - School of Linguistics and Applied Language Studies

We wish to appoint a fixed term part time (0.8FTE) Lecturer in Sociophonetics in our Linguistics programme.

Our programme is renowned for its undergraduate and postgraduate courses in linguistic structure and sociolinguistics. This position has become available through the recent success of programme members in obtaining external funding for projects on: language contact in New Zealand English, and the syntax-prosody interface cross-linguistically. The successful applicant will be joining our team at a particularly dynamic time. We are in an exciting phase of development with taught Masters programmes in Linguistics and across disciplines. You will teach UG and PG classes primarily in phonetics, and provide some teaching support in the sociolinguistics programme. You will be a researcher who can show a developing publication record in phonetics and who will be able to make a positive contribution to the School’s research profile.

Applicants must have a PhD in a relevant field (e.g. phonetics, sociophonetics), a solid background in quantitative research methods, teaching experience and evidence of innovation in teaching. Experience in course development and management and in supervising student research is desirable.

The position is available for a start no later than February 2017.

Further information can be obtained from Dr Sasha Calhoun, Linguistics Programme Director, email sasha.calhoun@vuw.ac.nz or phone +64 4 4639537.

Please complete the online application form and submit your CV and cover letter by attachment http://www.victoria.ac.nz/about/careers/current-vacancies

Applications close Monday, 31 October 2016.
