As part of a £6M transformation of the Centre for Forensic Linguistics at Aston University, into a Research Institute we are recruiting researchers in linguistics with an interest in applying their language analysis skills across a breadth of forensic texts and contexts.

We are looking to appoint linguistic researchers with or without forensic linguistic experience but with excellent language analysis skills, who can make a significant contribution to projects on written legal texts.

In addition to working on Institute projects researchers will be given 0.4 FTE to develop and deliver their own research project within the first two years of the post. Appointment will be in part on the basis of your project proposal and we are particularly interested in receiving proposals examining legal drafting and plain language issues and the interpretation of legal texts using linguistic methods.

All posts require a doctorate in a relevant discipline.
