The International Institute for Sign Languages and Deaf Studies (iSLanDS) is located within the School of Language, Literature and International Studies. The Institute is known for its groundbreaking large-scale projects with the European Science Foundation and the European Research Council, and is a highly diverse and stimulating, mixed deaf and hearing, international environment.
The successful applicant will be expected to develop, undertake and manage research projects and bids for research funding related to sign language linguistics. The Fellow will have considerable flexibility in shaping their own research within the strategic research priorities of the Institute and its international partnership network. We welcome applicants with a sound initial basis of sign language skills to build on as well as those with higher levels of fluency in any sign language(s).
The Fellow will be expected to publish high quality research outputs and to have an existing profile to submit to the Research Excellence Framework 2014. As the Fellowship develops, Fellows will be increasingly expected to undertake research student supervision, contribute to cross-Institute working groups, and undertake a limited amount of teaching if appropriate.
The last Research Assessment Exercise rated 17 areas of our research as world leading or of international significance and, as holders of the prestigious HR Excellence in Research award, we are committed to supporting our research staff to achieve their goals.
