Senior Research Fellow in Linguistics
All Souls College
The College seeks to invest further in Linguistics by electing a Senior Research Fellow in Linguistics in 2020. This is the first time that the College has advertised a vacancy specifically devoted to Linguistics. The vacancy is open to any area of the discipline.
Some existing Fellows have interests which overlap with or border on different areas of Linguistics. Some are philosophers: Senior Research Fellows Susanne Bobzien and Ian Rumfitt (both of whose interests include the philosophy of language) and two Fellows interested in the philosophy of language, semantics, and pragmatics (Fifty-Pound Fellow Daniel Rothschild and Post-Doctoral Research Fellow Matthew Mandelkern). Some of the College’s classicists also work on areas that overlap with or border on Linguistics: Emeritus Fellow James Adams works on the linguistic history of varieties of Latin; Fifty-Pound Fellow Alex Mullen’s work includes sociolinguistics; Senior Research Fellow Lucia Prauscello’s interests include philology. Diwakar Acharya, Spalding Professor of Eastern Religions and Ethics, is a specialist of Sanskrit and other old Indic languages. Cecilia Heyes, a Senior Research Fellow in Theoretical Life Sciences, works on topics relevant to the evolution of language. Among the College’s anthropologists, Emeritus Fellow David Parkin studies sociolinguistic diversity. Among the College’s Modern Linguists, Senior Research Fellow Neil Kenny has worked on the use of tense-aspect forms. Other Fellows whose work involves direct engagement with linguistic questions can be found on the ‘Classical Studies’, ‘History’, ‘Literature’, ‘Oriental Studies’, and ‘Social Anthropology’ pages.
