Lecturer in Linguistics: Phonology

Queen Mary University of London - School of Languages, Linguistics & Film

Queen Mary University of London is one of the world’s leading universities (in the top 100 according to the Times Higher World University Rankings). We have an impressive reputation for academic excellence, reinforced by our membership of the Russell Group of leading UK universities, which helps us to attract some of the brightest minds to study, teach and research here. We work across the humanities, social sciences, law, medicine and dentistry, and science and engineering. We are based in a creative and culturally diverse area of east London and are the only London University able to offer a completely integrated residential campus at our Mile End home.

The School of Languages, Linguistics and Film intends to appoint a Lecturer in Linguistics with a focus in Phonology. The successful candidate will be expected to convene and teach introductory and advanced modules in phonology at undergraduate and MA level, and enrich the graduate and research life of the department by developing phonology as a research area. S/he will also be expected to undertake PhD supervision and to contribute to the life of the School in a more general way, for instance by undertaking appropriate administrative and pastoral duties.

The post is full-time and permanent, with an expected start date of 1 September 2017. Starting salary will be in the range of £40,182 - £42,431 per annum. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, a defined benefit pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.

The Department of Linguistics

The Department of Linguistics was ranked first among UK linguistics departments in the last two national research assessment exercises: REF 2014 and RAE 2008. Present research strengths of the department are within the areas of morphology, syntax and semantics and their interfaces; sociolinguistics; and neuro linguistic/psycho linguistic perspectives on the above. As well as a popular MA programme, the department is home to a thriving and vibrant PhD student community.

The department seeks a phonologist who can extend the expertise of the Formal Linguistics (which spans morphology, syntax and semantics) or the Socio linguistics research group (which spans a range of socio linguistic and bilingualism research) or both. Experimental research within either group is welcome. A full list of staff in the department and their research interests, as well as any additional information about the department, can be found on our website at http://linguistics.sllf.qmul.ac.uk.

Although Queen Mary University of London does not require candidates to submit their work as part of their application, we recommend that you enclose 1-2 representative articles (in the same document as your CV) with your application and/or provide us with a web link to access samples of your work online.
