S/he will be expected to sustain high level research in his/her area of specialization, engaging with scholars across ANU, in particular in the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language (http://www.dynamicsoflanguage.edu.au/); contribute to the School’s teaching programs in Linguistics at all levels (Undergraduate, Honours, MA and PhD); recruit and supervise Honours, MA and PhD students; and be active in professional service within ANU, and nationally and internationally in his/her relevant disciplines, as well as in the broader community.

- A statement of no more than three pages, addressing the selection criteria
- A current curriculum vitae (with details of three referees)

Note: The ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language will soon be advertising (pending approval) a postdoctoral fellowship in variationist sociolinguistics (e.g. sociophonetics, ethnolectal variation, the role of frequency in language change). The successful applicant will be attached to the School of Literature, Languages and Linguistics, and will work with Professor Catherine Travis on the Sydney Speaks project (http://www.dynamicsoflanguage.edu.au/sydney-speaks/).
