Overview:
The School of Linguistics & English Language is the only School of Linguistics
in Wales, one of the oldest in the UK, and Bangor University is the only Welsh
institution to offer a degree in Linguistics. At present, the School has
approximately 230 undergraduate and around 20 MA students and 15 PhD students.
We offer single honours degrees in Linguistics, and English language plus
combined degree programmes with other schools. We also have a number of
Masters programmes, including an MA in Linguistics, an MA in Bilingualism, an
MA in Cognitive Linguistics, a Masters by Research (MRes), with various
pathways (including one in Welsh Linguistics), and two new MSc schemes, one in
Forensic Linguistics, and one in Language Development. The School has a
vibrant research community and culture and is particularly known for its
research in the areas of Cognitive Linguistics, and Bilingualism. In terms of
the latter, the School leads an interdisciplinary Bilingualism Research
Centre, which involves collaboration with the Schools of Psychology and
Education (www.bilingualism.bangor.ac.uk), and is involved in the All-Wales
ESRC-funded doctoral training centre with the Bilingualism pathway coordinated
from Bangor. Information on Linguistics & English Language, including its
staff and their research interests can be found at the following URL:

To receive full consideration, applicants are requested to provide i) a
completed standard Bangor application form, ii) a curriculum vitae including a
full listing of publications, iii) a separate statement of research interests
and plans, and iv) a separate statement of teaching experience, including
details of which modules at undergraduate and MA levels the applicant is able
and willing to teach, and how they could contribute to the BA in English
Language Studies. Visit the link below for further information:

Purpose of the Job:
The present post is part of the ongoing development of the School including an
ambitious internationalisation agenda. In addition to enhancement of the
taught postgraduate programme, such as two new MSc schemes, the School has
developed a new BA degree scheme in International English Language that is
specifically aimed at the international student market. It has also
inaugurated a series of highly successful international summer schools (in
bilingualism and cognitive linguistics); and it aims to consolidate its world
leading status in its areas of academic specialism.
