The School of Arts, Languages and Cultures at the University of Manchester invites applications for a permanent post in Linguistics (Lecturer or Senior Lecturer), within the Department of Linguistics and English Language, tenable from 1st September 2021.

You will have an established record of excellence in theory-driven research and research-led teaching. Crucially, you will also have an established record in the creation and delivery of activities and initiatives that translate research into beneficial activity or positive change in the wider community beyond academia, generating ‘impact’ as defined in the UK Research Excellence Framework. The department will consider candidates with a strong record of research outputs and a strong record of demonstrable impact on society in any area of linguistics, but particularly welcomes candidates with research or teaching expertise in multilingualism or bilingualism.

You will be expected to make a strong contribution to the research and research-impact strategy of the School by publishing high-quality peer-reviewed research outputs and by translating their research into activities and initiatives that have a demonstrable positive impact on society. You will be expected to contribute to curriculum design and research-led teaching on the English Language and Linguistics undergraduate programmes and the Linguistics MA programme. You will also be expected to contribute to administrative tasks within the Department or School, and participate in regular recruitment activities and staff-student events.

You will be expected to follow the University’s New Academics Programme and be subject to a probationary period. Lecturers on probationary appointments benefit from reduced teaching loads during the period of probation.
