The Linguistics Department at UCL is looking for a phonologist with a strong commitment to world-class research. The Department particularly welcomes applications from phonologists with expertise in sentence-level prosody and its interfaces, although this is not a prerequisite, and strong work on other phonological interfaces will also be considered. The appointment will be at Lecturer level (equivalent to Assistant Professor) or Senior Lecturer/Reader level (equivalent to Associate Professor). The successful candidate will contribute to the department’s research, teaching, graduate supervision, and administration.

The Linguistics Department is part of the Division of Psychology and Language Sciences at UCL, which offers excellent opportunities for cross-disciplinary research and the infrastructure for the successful applicant to build up their own research team.

The position is a permanent one, with a three-year probationary period (equivalent to tenure track).

The successful applicant will start work at UCL on 15th September 2014, or as soon as possible thereafter.

The successful candidate will hold a doctorate in linguistics or a cognate discipline and will be engaged in a program of original research that enhances the department’s research portfolio and that can give rise to PhD projects and applications for research funding. The ideal candidate has some years of postdoctoral experience, has a record of high-quality publications commensurate with the stage of their academic career, and is able to teach both phonology and phonetics.
