38,511 to 54,841 per annum

Closing Date: 

Tuesday 26 May 2015



We have introduced the title of Associate Professor for our grade 9 academic staff, which is equivalent to Senior Lecturer.

Available from 1 September 2015

You will have a PhD and an established research and teaching profile in Intercultural Competence or an analogous field (e.g. Intercultural Communication, Intercultural Studies, Modern Languages (ML), Applied Linguistics). The post will be based in the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies (LCS), and preference will be given to candidates with expertise relating to one or more of the modern languages taught and studied in the School. You will have the opportunity to define and develop the intercultural dimension of our teaching and research portfolio, taking advantage of a wide range of possible collaborations within the School and the University. Recent and immediately forthcoming publications will indicate your ability to make a distinctive contribution to research activity in this subject area, and to the supervision of research students.

Your expertise will be sufficiently applicable in professional and/or business contexts to allow you to play an effective and proactive role in links between LCS and Leeds University Business School, in particular in overseeing the academic development of the increasingly integrated portfolio of Joint Honours Undergraduate programmes co-taught by the two schools (Modern Languages  and International Business; ML and Management; ML and Economics). You will contribute to teaching on these programmes, and to MA programmes in the Centre for Translation Studies and the MA in Professional Language and Intercultural Studies. You will contribute to the administration and management of the School’s activities.
