UNIVERSITY COLLEGE LONDON

Applications are invited for a permanent lectureship in the Department
of Phonetics & Linguistics, which has an international reputation for
its research, and ratings of '5' in the last two RAEs. UCL as a whole
provides an outstanding research environment, and we enjoy close links
with other UCL departments and specialist hospitals.

The successful candidate will contribute to teaching at both
undergraduate and graduate levels on the acoustics of speech
production, hearing, and speech perception (with most students
training to be Speech and Language Therapists). Teaching experience is
essential and an interest in the development of computer-based
teaching materials would be an advantage. Other duties include
playing an important role in the reorganisation of one of our
undergraduate degree programmes.

The successful candidate will also be expected to carry out high
quality research in an appropriate scientific area, such as speech
production, speech perception, auditory processing or laboratory
phonology. Evidence of substantial research achievement, in the form
of published papers and/or research grants obtained, is a
prerequisite.

Starting date is negotiable, within the next academic year. The salary
will be on the Lecturer A/B salary scale (LSterling16,655 - 29,048 per
annum plus 2,134 per annum London Allowance), negotiable for
