The Department of English of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Macau invites applications for the position of Full Professor of English Language and Linguistics.
The Department of English is an expanding and lively scholarly community with a strong international profile comprising three main fields of interest: linguistics, literature and translation studies. In addition to its undergraduate BA programme in English Studies (including English Language and Linguistics), the department offers a Minor in Translation and MA programmes in English Studies (with a substantial linguistics component) and in Translation Studies, as well as PhD supervision across the range of the department’s expertise. In linguistics the department has particular strengths in bilingualism, cognitive linguistics, comparative linguistics, corpus linguistics, discourse analysis of media texts, sociolinguistics and world Englishes. Applications in all areas of English Language and Linguistics will be considered, but those in the areas of language policy and planning, forensic linguistics, literary linguistics or pedagogical linguistics will be particularly welcome.
Applicants must hold a PhD degree in English Language and Linguistics or in a related area and should have a distinguished record of research and publication at an international level, as well as a demonstrable record of excellence in teaching and supervising both postgraduates and undergraduates. An appointment may be offered at Associate Professor rank if the appointment panel considers this more appropriate to a candidate’s experience and qualifications.
The selected candidate is expected to assume duty in August 2014.
