Job Title: Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Research Fellow in the Future of Scots

Job Rank: Researcher

Specialty Areas: Applied Linguistics; Language Acquisition; Language Documentation; Sociolinguistics; Language Policy and Planning

Description:

As a world leader in research on the languages of Scotland, the University of Glasgow seeks to appoint the Lord Kelvin and Adam Smith Research Fellow in the Future of Scots, recognising the importance of this language to numerous communities across Scotland and abroad. This is a 5-year full-time fully funded research post at Grade 7 or 8, depending on the candidate's track record.

We are looking for scholars working on minority languages who are well placed to apply their findings in the context of the Scots language to address the linguistic status, acquisition and corpus planning for Scots, as well as issues faced by Scots-speaking communities, such as the perception of self and one’s place in society. The candidate is expected to design and carry out an ambitious research programme in the area of language policy and planning for Scots, engaging with stakeholders, including policy makers, and producing high quality research and knowledge exchange outputs.

The candidate should have an excellent track record in research and outreach activities, and should be able to present evidence of having drawn links between the wider society, policy makers, and academia in the context of minority and under-supported languages. The Fellow will be based in the School of Critical Studies in English Language & Linguistics, which is a department with particular strengths in modern and historical Scots.

To apply, please see the application link provided below.
