Lecturer Position in Phonetics & Phonology

The School of English Literature, Language and Linguistics wishes to appoint an outstanding scholar and teacher as a Lecturer in Phonetics and Phonology.

Deadline – 7th July 2019


You will have a PhD, either in hand or near completion, in Linguistics or English Language, and have undergraduate teaching experience in these areas. The ability to analyse experimental results from the perspective of linguistic theory is essential, as is knowledge of variation in English and quantitative methods.
We particularly encourage candidates with a collaborative bent, who can envision themselves working with theoreticians and experimentalists in a variety of disciplines, and who can situate their research on language in the wider study of cognition and/or other social science and scientific fields.
Applicants will have an excellent publication record for their career stage and will demonstrate the clear potential to make a significant contribution to the School’s research and teaching culture.


For further inquiries please contact Dr Geoff Poole, Head of the Language/Linguistics Subject Area (Geoffrey.Poole@newcastle.ac.uk) or Dr James Annesley, Head of School (James.Annesley@newcastle.ac.uk).
