Description:

The University of Macau is the leading higher education institution in Macao,
with English as its working language. In recent years, the University has been
making great progress towards becoming internationally recognized for its
excellence in teaching, research and service. With the beautiful new campus
(20 times larger than the old one) becoming fully operational recently, the
launch of Asia’s largest residential college system, the establishment of new
schools, and the increasing numbers of students and faculty members recruited
from around the world, UM provides great potential and exciting new
possibilities for growth and development.

The Department of English of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities invites
applications for the position of Professor of English Language and
Linguistics.

The Department of English is an expanding and lively scholarly community with
a strong international profile comprising three main fields of interest:
linguistics, literature and translation studies. In addition to its
undergraduate BA programme in English Studies (including English Language and
Linguistics), the department offers a Minor in Translation and MA programmes
in English Studies (with a substantial linguistics component) and in
Translation Studies, as well as PhD supervision across the range of the
department’s expertise. In linguistics the department has particular strengths
in bilingualism, cognitive linguistics, comparative linguistics, corpus
linguistics, discourse analysis of media texts, sociolinguistics and world
Englishes.

Qualifications

The successful candidate will have a PhD in English Language or Linguistics,
or another related area, teaching experience at tertiary institutions and a
track record of quality research publications appropriate to the rank of Full
Professor. Applicants for the position should demonstrate excellence in
teaching and academic supervision, as well as a good record of research grant
applications. Applications in all areas of English Language and Linguistics
will be considered, but those in the areas of language policy and planning, or
pedagogical linguistics will be particularly welcome. An appointment may be
offered at Associate Professor rank if the appointment panel considers this
more appropriate to a candidate’s experience and qualifications.

The selected candidate is expected to assume duty in August 2015.

Position and Remuneration

Remuneration and appointment rank offered will be competitive and commensurate
with the successful applicants’ academic qualification, current position and
professional experience. The current local maximum income tax rate is 12% but

applications will commence on 1st December 2014 and continue until the
