Faculty of Arts Department of Language and Communication
Full Professor of Applied Linguistics 
(Vacancy number 202057)

Applied Linguistics concerns the study of the application of
linguistics to all those socially important areas in which language
plays a part. Within the broad field of Applied Linguistics the
Faculty of Arts of the University of Groningen wishes to focus on
naturalistic and instructed second/foreign language
acquisition. Research will specifically focus on the relation between
the naturalistic and instructed factors in the acquisition of modern
foreign/second languages. Special attention will be given to the
factors determining the course and the rate of acquisition processes.
It is not only internal factors of a linguistic, psycholinguistic and
biological nature that will be the object of research, but also and in
particular external factors such as teaching procedures and
socio-cultural factors. Bearing on this research will be recent
developments such as neuro-imaging and CALL.

The professor's research will be conducted within the framework of the
Centre for Language and Cognition Groningen (CLCG). It is the
faculty's aim to place the Professor of Applied Linguistics also in
the functional charge of the team of language teaching methodologists
in the Arts cluster of the University Centre for Teacher
Education. Within this Centre this team of language pedagogues is
responsible for the training of teachers of Dutch, German, English,
French, Classical Languages, and Frisian.

The position requires
- teaching and co-ordinating teaching in the above field
- co-ordinating and conducting research
- supervising PhD research
- executive and managerial work
- the further specialisation and expansion of national and
international networks.
