The department of Linguistics and English Language at the University of Edinburgh is looking for a new colleague at the rank of Lecturer/Senior Lecturer (in the UK system, equivalent to Assistant/Associate Professor in the US system), in Semantics.
The successful candidate will have a relevant PhD. They will contribute original research, high quality teaching, public impact, and leadership in an area of Semantics. The post includes teaching at all levels of the curriculum in the area, contributing to our thriving undergraduate and MSc programmes, and supervising PhD students. The successful candidate will also be expected to build collaborations and to demonstrate potential for attracting external grant funding. An excellent publication record for your career stage and the potential to make a significant contribution to the research culture of the School are essential.
We are open to candidates with a broad range of interests in the study of meaning. We expect, though, that the successful candidate will contribute to formal semantics teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels including PhD supervision and curriculum development. We particularly encourage candidates with a collaborative approach, who can situate their research in the wider study of linguistics and other fields.
