However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Our growing Department seeks a talented and ambitious Professor/Reader in

The post replaces the soon-to-retire Head of Clinical Language Sciences.
This senior level appointment is intended to help develop further our

interests within the field of speech and language development and disorders
across the lifespan. Recent research has focused on characterising
development and disorders, developing assessments for children and adults
and designing clinical interventions. According to the Research Assessment
Exercise (RAE) published in December 2008, the quality of 85% of our
research activity was considered to be internationally recognised with 10%
of this being assessed as 'world-leading'.

The successful candidate is expected to:

- engage in high quality research and make a significant contribution to
the Department's publication profile;

- provide research leadership and foster research culture within the
Department and School through mentoring junior staff;

- provide leadership in developing applications for external funding and
collaborate with staff within the Department/School on major research

- develop research links with other researchers in the Department, School,
and across the University, for example with the newly-established Centre
for Integrated Neurosciences and Neurodynamics (CINN);

- contribute to the Department's undergraduate and postgraduate programmes;

- contribute towards department administrative tasks and, where
appropriate, Chair committees of the School, Faculty, University.
