Closing Date: Friday 16 March 2018
The Department of Linguistics and English Language at Lancaster University
seeks to appoint two Senior Research Associates to work full time for 5 years
in the ESRC Research Centre for Corpus Approaches to Social Science. The
Centre, which was founded in 2013 and awarded a Queen’s Anniversary Prize for
Further and Higher Education in 2015, has obtained funding for a further 5
years from April 2018 to March 2023. This funding will enable the Centre to
extend the facilitative and transformative power of corpus methods to urgently
needed research into health(care) communication.
You will have a PhD in Linguistics or a related area, a track-record of
conference presentations and publications commensurate with your career stage,
and experience both in the linguistic study of health(care) communication and
in the use of corpus methods in the analysis of language and texts. You will be
part of an interdisciplinary team that includes academics from the Departments
of Linguistics & English Language, Politics, Philosophy & Religion, History,
Psychology, and the Institute for Health Research.
You will conduct qualitative and quantitative analyses on a range of different
types of corpus data relating to health(care) (including mental health,
obesity, chronic pain and language assessment for the healthcare profession),
and present the results of the analyses to both academic and non-academic
audiences through different media.
You must also include a cover letter/statement in support of your application
(maximum 500 words), including your rationale for applying for this post and
how your research fits with the aims and objectives of the Centre to which this
post is attached.
