We seek to appoint a Lecturer in Speech and Hearing Sciences. The postholder will contribute to research and teaching in the Department of Speech, Hearing, and Phonetic Sciences. We particularly welcome applicants who work at the interface between hearing and speech perception, and study how these processes change over the lifespan.

This might include (but is not limited to):
- Hearing, speech, and language development in the first years of life,
- The interaction of hearing and cognition for speech communication in ageing populations,
- Listening effort,
- Speech and hearing in typical and atypical populations,
- Hearing impairment and speech perception, and
- Speech-in-noise perception across the lifespan.

The postholder will be expected to develop an outstanding research profile that enhances the international standing of the department. In addition to research, the postholder will be expected to engage in a range of teaching activities including the development, delivery, assessment and quality assurance of teaching programmes and modules. The postholder will also undertake supervision of student research projects, provide pastoral care for students, and undertake administrative duties in the department.

The post is available from August 2021.
