Description:

Join a unique British University in China. The University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC) was the first Sino-foreign university to open its doors in China. This award winning campus offering a UK style education has grown to establish a student body of over 6,000 in just 8 years. The School of English at UNNC was founded in 2007, developing a range of Masters and BA programmes in the areas of Applied Linguistics, English language, World Englishes and Professional Communication, with PhDs taken from 2009. Additionally, the Centre for Research in Applied Linguistics in China (CRALC) was established as a branch of CRAL in Nottingham, UK. Members of staff are actively engaged in research in three main areas: Language, Literature and Creativity; Multilingualism and Education; and Professional and Intercultural Communication.

Staff appointed to the School work closely with colleagues from the School of English at the University of Nottingham, UK, one of the oldest and best respected Schools of English interantionally. A new School in University of Nottingham Malaysia will also increasingly integrate into School activities. The three University Schools of English collaborate to strengthen already leading teaching and research activities. Members of staff are currently teaching the sixth group of postgraduate students on MA programmes in Applied Linguistics, undergraduate students on three BA programmes as well as undertaking PhD supervision. The School is expected to expand staff and student numbers year on year.

The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to teaching and curriculum development for undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, participate in assessing and examining students and in collaborative research projects. The role will also involve supervision of PhD and Masters students. Ongoing original research and publications in the successful candidate’s specialist field is expected, as is participation in high-level international conferences. Ability to teach corpus linguistics at all levels is desirable but not essential.

Candidates must have a PhD (or close to completion) in English/Modern English Language/Applied Linguistics, together with excellent research skills. The ability to attract funding for major research projects is a distinct advantage. Experience of teaching and tutorial work in relevant subjects in an international English-speaking institution is also essential.

Salary will be within the range of £33,230 - £44,607 per annum depending on skills and experience (salary progression beyond this scale is subject to performance). In addition, an attractive package including accommodation allowance, travel allowance and insurance will be provided for international appointments.

This post is available from 1 August 2014 or as soon as possible thereafter and will initially be offered on a fixed-term contract with the University of Nottingham, Ningbo, China for a period of up to five years. This contract may be extended on an indefinite basis by mutual agreement, subject to revised terms and conditions.
