DEPARTMENT OF LANGUAGE & LINGUISTIC SCIENCE

Lectureship in French Linguistics

I
Applications are invited for a lectureship in French Linguistics from 1
October 1993. This post arises because of the death of Dr. Adrian Battye.

The salary will be within the Lecturer's salary scale (grade A or B),
currently #13,400 -#24,736 per annum, according to age, qualifications and
experience.

II
Candidates should have a strong commitment to research in the linguistics
of French, specializing in some branch of linguistics relevant to the
Department's work. They should be able to demonstrate research achievement.
They will be responsible for undergraduate courses in French linguistics,
including aspects of the history and linguistic structure of the French
language. Candidates should have a good command of French, and preference
may be given to candidates who will make some contribution to the teaching
of French language, in a course which lays special emphasis on both the
teaching of varieties of French and the linguistic analysis of the French
language.

The department provides a lively and supportive research environment; our
research is mainly focussed on phonetics, phonology, syntax and
sociolinguistics but the research interests of members of the department
include semantics, computational linguistics, conversational analysis,
historical linguistics, dialectology and second language acquisition. The
department also houses a major research project into high quality speech
synthesis which is funded by British Telecom Plc. Preference may be given
to candidates who specialise in some area of syntax, sociolinguistics or
phonetics/phonology, but candidates with other specialisms are encouraged
to apply.

The department's undergraduate teaching combines the study of linguistics
and language. We teach Chinese, English, French, German, Hindi, Swahili and
Swedish alongside a wide range of courses in Linguistics. Undergraduates
study one or more languages and linguistics, and have a wide range of
choice in the structure of their degree. The organisation of French
teaching within the department - including the placement of students at
French Universities on the year away, monitoring their progress and making
periodic contact visits - is shared among the French staff and applicants
must be willing to take part in the associated administrative work, as well
as in other aspects of departmental administration. There are three other
members of the department's French section: a lecturer (Mrs. M-A Hintze), a
teaching fellow (Dr. Green) and a full-time language assistant. The annual
undergraduate intake of the department is between 55 and 60 students, of
whom up to 30 specialise in French.

The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to the general
linguistics teaching of the department by developing an option in
linguistics or contributing to one or more of the established option
courses, by contributing to first year courses in general linguistics and
by participating in first year general tutorial teaching of linguistic
theory. There is considerable flexibility in our teaching programme for the
incoming candidate to develop individual interests. There are flourishing
graduate MA courses in Linguistics, and Linguistics and English Language
Teaching. The successful candidate may also be asked to contribute to these
courses and will be expected to undertake supervision of MA and other
dissertations as appropriate. The precise duties of the post will be by
arrangement with the Head of Department.

Information on undergraduate courses and on members of staff and their
interests will be supplied on request.

III
The University will meet the full cost, within reason, of removal of
furniture and household effects within the United Kingdom. The extent of
payment of removal expenses of members of staff coming from overseas is at
the discretion of the Vice-Chancellor. Three estimates of removal costs
(one of which should be from a York firm) must be obtained and the
University will meet the cost of the lowest estimate.

IV
Six copies of applications (one only from overseas candidates) with full
curriculum vitae and giving the names and addresses of three referees,
should be sent by 8 June 1993 to: Personnel Department, University of York,
Heslington, York YO1 5DD, UK (fax (0904) 433433). Please supply e-mail
addresses and fax numbers both for yourself and for referees if possible.
There are no printed application forms. In their letter of application
candidates should outline their research interests and plans and their
teaching experience, and they should outline the contribution they would
wish to make to the department, in both research and teaching. Please quote
reference number 3365. Further information is available from by email from
Steve Harlow (Internet: sjh1tower.york.ac.uk; Janet: sjh1uk.ac.york.vaxa)

Interviews will be held in York on the afternoon of Thursday 1 July.
Candidates will be invited to meet members of the department in the morning
and will be expected to give an informal presentation for not more than 15
minutes on some aspect of their research to a small audience of members of
staff.
