The School of English is seeking to appoint a Research Associate/Fellow in Corpus Linguistics to support the research project Coronavirus Discourses: Linguistic Evidence For Effective Public Health Messaging.  This is an excellent opportunity to join an interdisciplinary team of researchers working across the Faculties of Arts, Science and Engineering at the University of Nottingham’s UK campus.

We are seeking applications from candidates whose background, experience and identity broadens and enhances the diversity of our existing team. The successful candidate will have expertise in corpus linguistics, including the ability to build new corpora, and in using corpus-based approaches to discourse analysis. A background in working with external organisations and/or in areas of public health communication would be an advantage.

Candidates should have a PhD (or equivalent) either completed or submitted, in Applied Linguistics, Corpus Linguistics or an equivalent relevant area. 

This is a full time, fixed term appointment from 15 March 2021 (or as soon as possible thereafter) to 03 July 2022 and is funded by the AHRC. Job share arrangements may be considered. 

Our staff body is currently under-represented in terms of Black, Asian and minority ethnic members, and so we would particularly welcome applicants from these backgrounds.
