Description:

Vacancy Number 033761

The University of Glasgow seeks to appoint a Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Fellow in Language Policy and Linguistic Sustainability to contribute to our world-leading profile in the study of the languages of Scotland and minority languages in general. The LKAS Fellow will develop an ambitious research agenda which will inform language policy-making in Scotland, with a focus on the Scots language and its prospects for sustainability. We are looking for a scholar with an outstanding capacity for innovative research into minority languages and their future, drawing on cutting-edge developments across the humanities and social sciences [in areas such as sociolinguistics, applied linguistics, ethnography, political science, and anthropology]. In addition to an excellent postdoctoral track record and research outputs in any linguistic-minority context, the candidate should be able to present evidence of knowledge exchange and outreach activities establishing connections between policy makers, academia, under-supported language communities and wider society.

Our flagship LKAS Fellowship Scheme was established in 2006 to enable the recruitment of outstanding researchers who are in the early stages of their careers and are on a trajectory to become leaders in their chosen field. The scheme offers Fellows the opportunity to establish or further develop an independent research career.

Each Fully Funded Fellowship will run for five years; progression to Years 4 and 5 is dependent on Fellows meeting specific performance targets as agreed at the start of the Fellowship.

Salary will be on the University's Research and Teaching grades 7 or 8 (Grade 7: £35,845 - £40,322 per annum, Grade 8: £44,045 - £51,034 per annum). In addition to the salary funding, an allowance for research costs will be made at a rate of £5,000 per annum for each year for non-laboratory-based research.

Once in post, Fellows will be appointed a mentor from outside their immediate line management, be entitled to participate in any of the training programmes and courses offered by the School/Institute, College or University, and be required to report their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities as agreed with their Line Manager through the Performance and Development Review (PDR) process.

In addition to completing the online application form, you will also be required to complete a separate application document, to be appended to your cover letter. For Main Duties and Responsibilities as well as Essential and Desirable criteria, visit the application link below.
