Lecturer in Applied Linguistics-TESOL, School of English, University of Sheffield. Deadline: 3 May 2018.
Opportunity for an individual who has teaching and research strengths in language pedagogy to make an impact on the MA in Applied Linguistics with TESOL (Teacher of English to Speakers of Other Languages) and on the undergraduate curriculum. The MA in Applied Linguistics team is recognised for its expert academic staff who offer research expertise and supervision in a variety of sub-disciplines. These include second language acquisition, sociolinguistics, English for academic purposes, bilingualism, corpus linguistics, pragmatics, intercultural communication and critical discourse analysis.
You will be joining the Applied Linguistics team and will have teaching and research strengths in language pedagogy covering one or more of the following areas: language curriculum design, language pedagogy, vocabulary studies, classroom-based research, language testing, CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning), and teaching young learners. The ability to teach across a broad range will be an advantage, including, if necessary, in areas beyond your primary research specialisation. You will be required to provide teaching in connection with the MA in Applied Linguistics with TESOL (Teacher of English to Speakers of Other Languages).
We are seeking candidates with a PhD in Applied Linguistics (or equivalent experience) and proven teaching ability.
