The School contains one of the UK’s largest concentrations of high-quality research and teaching in languages and linguistics. Within it, the discipline area of Linguistics and English Language is seeking to fill the position of Lecturer in English Language. The lecturership is a fixed-term position, replacing Dr Nuria Yáñez-Bouza during a period of research leave. Candidates with a research specialism in the history of English are encouraged to apply.
You will have proven ability and potential in research, with a developing record of publications in the area named above. You will be expected to contribute to research activities within their area of expertise, generate scholarly publications, submit research grant applications and participate in research supervision at PGT and PGR level.
The appointment will be specifically in the area currently covered by Dr Nuria Yáñez-Bouza. You will thus be expected to teach such course units as Historical Linguistics, History of English, Middle English, Introduction to English Grammar, World Englishes, and Attitudes to Language (i.e. the history of grammar-writing and prescriptive attitudes to English), at both UG and PGT level. The ability to be involved in the delivery of study skills sessions and to teach in the area of corpus linguistics will be an advantage.
You must be able to collaborate closely with colleagues in the delivery of teaching and learning, be willing to take a share of responsibilities for student progress and academic management, and be eager to make a full commitment to our ideals of collegiality and academic integrity at all levels of activity.
This post is available from 1 February 2012 to 31 January 2017.
