The School of English and Languages is seeking to appoint an academic to a Fixed-Term contract in the Surrey Morphology Group (SMG) at Lecturer level, as cover for maternity leave (1 September 2014 to 31 January 2015). The successful candidate will be responsible for (i) teaching two courses on linguistic diversity to MA and BA students and contributing to a team-taught course on research methods, (ii) conducting research on a topic in linguistics related to the interests of the SMG, and (iii) undertaking the examining, marking and administrative duties associated with the teaching role. This is an opportunity for the successful candidate to engage in all the components of an academic post (teaching, research and administration), within a supportive research environment. The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic teacher who can present a range of linguistic topics in a way that will engage and develop students from different subject backgrounds. The candidate must also be able to demonstrate a clear plan for the research they will conduct during the appointment. Candidates invited for interview will be asked to give a short presentation related to their research.
The person appointed will be expected to teach the following courses: ‘Linguistic Diversity (BA)’ and ‘Global Diversity in Language and Communication (MA)’. They will also contribute to a team-taught course: ‘Introduction to Research Methods: Answering Questions with Evidence (MA)’.
The SMG's current research ranges from fieldwork (on Daghestanian, Oto-Manguean, Slavonic, Atlantic, Papuan and Tibeto-Burman languages) to morphological theory (especially Network Morphology), linguistic typology (including Canonical Typology) and computational modelling. At School level, the School of English and Languages offers a collaborative and successful research environment, and within this, the SMG has research projects funded by the European Research Council, the AHRC and the ESRC.
