W2 English: Contrastive Linguistics

The Faculty of Arts and Humanities invites applications for the post of
Professor of English: Contrastive Linguistics, to be appointed as soon as
possible. Applicants should be capable of covering the whole subject area
of linguistics in their teaching and should have research interests that
include a focus on the contrastive analysis of English and German with a
consideration of aspects of general linguistics. They should also be
familiar with modern linguistic theories and be able to contribute to
interdisciplinary cooperation.

The teaching duties include contributing to all the study programmes in the
English Department (course for students who intend to become teachers of
English as well as BA, MA and PhD programmes) and both the existing MA
programme in General Linguistics and the planned MA programme in Linguistics.

The successful applicant will be expected to become involved in committee
work within the university's academic structure and in the development and
planning of new study programmes.

Applicants should have appropriate teaching experience and should have
completed a post-doctoral research project ('Habilitation') or have an
equivalent qualification.

Applications should include a CV, copies of degree certificates, a list of
publications, and a list of courses taught at university level.

Applications from women are particularly welcome, and women will be given
preference over male applicants with the same qualifications and abilities,
unless this is outweighed by other factors. This does not affect the
rights to preferential treatment of disabled applicants who have the same
qualifications and abilities.
