The University of Edinburgh seeks to fill the vacancy in the Forbes Chair of
English Language created by the departure of Professor April McMahon to

incumbent, is devoted to linguistic theory in relation to English and its history.

Linguistics and English Language is one of three subject areas in the School
of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences. In the most recent
Research Assessment Exercise, the University of Edinburgh was shown to
have produced 30% of all the top rated work (categories 4 and 5) in linguistics
within the UK, and in 2011 it figured in the world top ten for linguistics in the
QS ranking.
