Subject: Job in the Phonetics of Irish English

I wonder whether anyone out there might be interested in applying
for a new and additional lectureship in english Language and
Linguistics at the Queen's University of Belfast. This additional
post has come about in response to the strong research and teaching
record of the present full-time language staff and we are looking
for someone skilled and qualified in the phonetics and phonology
of English (but especially phonetics) who is willing to research
on and make a substantial contribution to the scholarship on the
phonetics of Irish English. We have a modest computer-based speech
laboratory in the school, and the new lecturer would be encouraged
to develop it.

Anyone interested in making informal enquiries with me is welcome
to get in touch by phone (+44) 232 245133 ext 3815; by fax (+44)
232 314615; or by email ENG0997QUB.AC.UK.

Anyone intending to apply will need to deal with the university's
personnel office as special forms will have to be issued individually.
Its phone number is (+44) 232 245133 Ext. 3044 or 3246. Its fax
number is (+44) 232 324994 or 310629.

The clsing date is FRIDAY 22 JULY 1994. I apologise for only posting
this now, but I have been on holiday until yesterday. This has been
my earliest opportunity.

This is a permanent job and appointment could be made at any point
on the UK Lecturer A or B scales which run from 14756 to 25735 pounds.
Overseas applications would be welcome!

With thanks,

School of English
The Queen's University of Belfast
