The Centre for Forensic Linguistics is an ambitious, expanding, research group with an established reputation for excellence in research and forensic linguistic practice.

The Centre is seeking to make two fixed term appointments of post-doctoral researchers from 1 October 2018 to 30 September 2020. 

You should have a completed doctorate in a relevant social science discipline and a track record of excellence in research which is likely to include publications and or involvement in the acquisition of external research funds. 

Position 1: 50th Anniversary Prize Fellowship – this is a University sponsored position co-funded by government with a specified project examining the linguistics of online networks.

Position 2: This is a School of Languages and Social Sciences sponsored position for which we are accepting project proposals but for which there will be a strong focus on grant bid writing to further expand the Centre.

Both positions require development of a brief project plan as part of the application process, information regarding this can be found in the job details. Fellows will be involved fully in the activities of the Centre including elements of teaching and training and will receive support to enable their professional development.

Please contact Professor Tim Grant (Director of CFL) (t.d.grant@aston.ac.uk) with any queries about the roles.
