English Language and Linguistics has the ten-year objective of further reinforcing and developing research within two main fields: English linguistics specialising in language usage and variation, and English linguistics specialising in linguistic representation and language processing. The former concerns the way in which language is used and varies in relation to parameters such as time, space and situation, while the latter is focused on how linguistic expressions are linked to cognition and linguistic structures. We are therefore looking for an internationally prominent researcher with proven expertise in at least one of these specialisations.

- Responsibility for the development of research and education and training at PhD level,
- Individual research, planning, participation in, and management of, research projects including applications for research funding, and
- Teaching, supervision and course development in all cycles of study including at post-doctoral level.
