Queen Mary University of London is currently inviting applications for lectureships in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.

Within Linguistics, the university particularly welcomes strong applications in two areas: computational linguistics and first language acquisition. Applicants should demonstrate an active research agenda that aligns well with our departmental strengths and fits well within the wider Humanities and Social Sciences faculty. Outstanding applications may be considered in other areas if they robustly meet the stated criteria of demonstrating strong potential for developing new, highly interdisciplinary research initiatives, ideally linked to national funding priorities. An interdisciplinary faculty panel will assess applications.
