Applied Linguistics is conceived as an empirically driven, theory-building discipline, striving to take a stance on linguistic issues within societal discourse. In the context of the Department of Linguistics, Applied Linguistics is furthermore committed to the common institutional goal of exploring language in a comprehensive sense (as a system, competence and social practice).

The successful candidate should represent Applied Linguistics with a focus on institutional/organizational communication. The candidate should have a research focus on oral data.
