We are seeking applicants who have evidence of producing research output(s) that are judged to be internationally excellent and who have an emerging or established research programme in the field of linguistics that address mental aspects such as the comprehension, production, and development of language(s), with direct and demonstrable relevance to one of the School’s research specialisms: bilingualism or Cognitive Linguistics (theoretical and/or applied or experimental approaches).

The ability to offer undergraduate teaching in the areas of psycholinguistics, language and cognition, language development and acquisition, and grammar will be important.

The School now seeks to further enhance its research and teaching capacity, so wishes to appoint a permanent member of staff whose research profile sits in the area of psycholinguistics and who can engage with one or both of its research priorities Cognitive Linguistics (theoretical and/or applied or experimental approaches) and Bilingualism). The new staff member should also be able to offer teaching, at undergraduate level, in a wide range of English linguistics / English language studies, as well as in their research specialism(s) at postgraduate level. The School is particularly keen to appoint someone who can teach in the following areas: language acquisition, language development, and areas of language and mind.
