The Department of English Language and Culture seeks an 
Associate Professor in English Linguistics for 38 hours per week.

Vacancy Number: W12-083

This associate professorship is complementary to an existing full 
professorship for English Linguistics (Prof. Dr Olga Fischer).

The teaching of the linguistics of English takes place in the BA 
program of English Language and Culture and the MA program in 
(English) linguistics. Research is embedded in the Amsterdam 
Center for Language and Communication and could in principle 
touch on all the issues that the  research groups which form part of 
the ACLC are concerned with.

The associate professor of English Linguistics will be embedded in 
the School of Language and Literature. His/her research will be part 
of the Amsterdam Center for Language and Communication (ACLC). 
The Faculty's Bachelor programs are overseen by the College of 
Humanities. Masters and Ph.D. education is overseen by the 
Graduate School of Humanities.

The successful candidate will teach and develop teaching activities 
both as part of and outside the programme of  the Department of 
English Language and Culture. He or she will (help) supervise both 
(under)graduate and doctoral students. The candidate will 
independently conduct research in the areas mentioned, resulting in 
contributions to leading international publications. The candidate will 
be expected to raise funds for and be involved in (international) 
research  projects. The candidate will be responsible, together with 
the professor holding the Chair of English linguistics, for a large part 
of the administrative duties both within and outside the department of 

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in English Language/Linguistics, 
have a strong background in discourse theory and pragmatics, and 
have experience in the practical application of discourse models. 
Ideally the applicant will have research and/or teaching experience 
in language proficiency and/or sociolinguistics. The successful 
candidate will be able to contribute substantively to theoretical 
reflections on the study of English Linguistics in a broader sense, and 
engage actively in empirical research. She/he will have a strong 
international reputation, an excellent publication record, and a 
proven track record of acquiring external research funding. The 
successful candidate will have broad working experience - including 
internationally - in university settings, and will have experience 
supervising graduate students and doctoral candidates. She/he will 
have an active international network. The candidate must have a 
fluent command of both Dutch and English; any appointee lacking 
this level of linguistic competence will be expected to acquire it within 
two years of taking up the post. In keeping with university policy, 
candidates should preferably have international teaching 
experience, preferably at different academic levels. It is crucial that 
applicants have broad experience in the academic and 
administrative duties required at university level.
