The Department of Language and Linguistic Science at the University of York seeks to appoint a Head of Department. The appointment will be at the Professorial level. The role offers an exciting opportunity to lead an established Department with a distinguished track record of research and teaching and to shape its future in a changing environment. The appointee will exercise leadership, demonstrate vision, and empower others in order to deliver the agreed departmental strategy in line with faculty and university objectives.
Our language teaching is based on Content and Language Integrated Learning, with no separation between language learning and cultural studies. Our linguistics teaching is consistently research-led with an increasing focus on skills development. We will particularly value applications from individuals who will enable the department to maximise its potential in the synergy between languages and linguistics, take advantage of new opportunities for collaboration and partnerships, and whose research profile will enhance our research activities, which are organised into several groups: Phonetics & Phonology, Morphology, Syntax & Semantics, Forensic Speech Science, Sociolinguistics, History of English, Interaction, Early Language Development, Second Language Acquisition, Language & Speech Processing & Production.
We particularly welcome applications from female candidates, and candidates from minority ethnic backgrounds, who are under-represented in leadership roles in the institution.
