The Department of Language and Linguistic Science is seeking to appoint an Associate Lecturer in Phonetics/Phonology for 12 months fixed-term (full-time).

The successful applicant to the position of Associate Lecturer in Phonetics/Phonology will contribute to teaching from 1 September 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter.

You will play a full part in teaching, supervision and administration in the Department, with particular responsibility for teaching in phonetics/phonology on our programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Skills, Experience & Qualifications needed:
You are an early-career academic, with a PhD in Linguistics or closely related field, who is committed to excellence in teaching and supervision. You will have specialist knowledge in phonetics and phonology. We would especially welcome someone with the ability to deliver training in phonetic observation and transcription. Familiarity with English phonetics is essential but knowledge of languages other than English would be an asset. Members of the Department frequently combine phonetics and phonology with other areas of linguistics, such as conversation analysis, sociolinguistics or child language acquisition, and we would welcome someone who can contribute to one of these sub-areas within linguistics. Experience of interacting with students and providing guidance on their projects is an advantage.
