Job Vacancy – Tenured position in English Language and Linguistics,
University of Paris VIII
- Apologies for cross-posting -
The University of Paris VIII is expected to have a vacancy in English
Language and Linguistics, beginning in September 2017. The position will
be junior lecturer / assistant professor (Maître de conférences).
The position is tenured and consists of 50% teaching and 50% research.
The semester is 13 weeks long and teaching is 2 to 3 3-hour classes a
week. The salary is non-negotiable and determined by the university with
respect to experience and age. It will lie somewhere between 1750 and
- Teaching -
Teaching will be divided between linguistics and language instruction.
The language courses will be in grammar and restricted to the Bachelor
programme. The linguistics courses will be given at both a bachelor and
master’s level. Ideally, we need a teacher for courses in syntax
(functional / construction-based), discourse analysis and /or
Supervision of master theses and assistance in the development of the
master’s programme may also be required.
- Research -
The lecturer would join the research group LeCSeL within the broader
English language research group TransCrit, EA 1569. The team is united
by its concern for empirical methods and its team members can be broadly
described as functional-cognitive. Any researcher working within the
fields of lexico-syntax or semantics & pragmatics, within the
usage-based framework of linguistics, is welcome. The actual profile,
when officially advertised, will foreground the discursive dimensions of
language research and / or construction-based research.
Experience with technical tools (corpora, manual taggers, NLP,
statistics...) used in empirical langauge research would be considered a
great advantage to the candidacy, but is not a requirement.
- Application -
The process for a job application in France is complex and the initial
stages independent from the hiring university. If your candidature is
suitable, we will help you with this process. A simplified timeline is
below. Each of these dates is crucial and there can be no exceptions
because this is a computerised / centralised process.
The first step is relatively simple – it is an online application for
the right to make the application for “qualification” (which will take
place in December). At this initial step in October, no documentation is
required. It is essential to have this qualification in order to apply
for the position next year. The qualification is valid 3 years and will
allow you to apply for any lecturing position in France.
- Important Dates-
Deadline for the application for the right to apply for "qualification":
16h00, 25th October 2016
Deadline for the actual job application: 29th March 2017
For doctorandi, the final date for thesis defence permitting
qualification: 14 December 2016
Knowledge of French is not formally required, but it will help your
candidacy. The desire to learn French over the first few years in order
to help with administrative tasks is expected.
If you are interested in the position, please contact Dylan Glynn
<dgl...@univ-paris8.fr> before the 21st October.
At this stage of the process, a CV should be sufficient although later
stages will also require a full dossier including copies of candidates’
publications. It is essential to remember that although the actual
application will be in spring, the applicant must complete the online
registration for the procedure before the 25^th October.
