Overview:

Queen Mary University of London is one of the UK’s leading research-focused universities and a member of the Russell Group with an outstanding reputation in the humanities and social sciences.

The School of Languages, Linguistics and Film is looking to appoint to a Lecturer in Sociolinguistics to deliver teaching and assessment across undergraduate and, as appropriate, taught postgraduate programmes. Duties will include research, and publication, convening and teaching undergraduate modules, contributing to MA provision as appropriate, (co)-supervising PhD students, co-supervision for UG research projects and undertaking administrative roles as required within the Department of Linguistics. You will be able to develop new modules, and adapt existing ones, in line with your specific research strengths. Applications are invited from a specialist in the area of quantitative sociolinguistics. Specialisation in the area of language variation and change and social dialectology is of particular interest. We also welcome expertise in advanced new analytic techniques with potential for inter-disciplinary ties to computational or experimental research on spoken language.

You will hold a PhD in Linguistics or have a relevant professional qualification or equivalent professional experience, together with the ability to deliver teaching and assessment at undergraduate and postgraduate level. The ability to work constructively and flexibly with colleagues, and good organisational and communication skills are also essential. Evidence of high quality research and publications in renowned journals is also expected.
