The Department of Linguistics at Queen Mary University of London is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Sociolinguistics (full-time, permanent), with a focus on quantitative sociolinguistics.

Specialisation in the area of language variation and change and social dialectology is of particular interest. We also welcome expertise in advanced new analytic techniques with potential for inter-disciplinary ties to computational or experimental research on spoken language.

The successful candidate will be expected to deliver teaching and assessment across undergraduate and, as appropriate, taught postgraduate programmes. Duties will include research and publication, convening and teaching undergraduate modules, contributing to MA provision as appropriate, supervising PhD students, supervision for UG research projects and undertaking administrative roles as required within the Department of Linguistics. The candidate will be expected to develop new courses or adapt existing ones in line with their specific research strengths.

The closing date for applications is 08 December 2019. Shortlisted candidates will be invited for interview in late January/February 2020.

Although QMUL does not require candidates to submit samples of their research as part of their application, we recommend that you enclose 1-2 representative articles (in the same document as your CV) with your application and/or provide us with a web link to access samples online.
