A working knowledge of French is expected.

The successful candidate is expected to join the Centre de Linguistique Interlangue, de Lexicologie, de Linguistique Anglaise et de Corpus - Atelier de recherche sur la parole (CLILLAC-ARP) and the department of English:

Teaching responsibilities will include undergraduate courses in phonetics, phonetic variation and intonation and graduate courses in phonetics and in the areas of the appointee's specialization.

This position is a permanent one with a civil servant status. Salary will be in accordance with the French state regulated public service salary scale.
