The Faculty is delighted that Professor Aditi Lahiri has been awarded a CBE in the New Year 2020 Honours List. The honour is in recognition of her services to the study of Linguistics.
Her research profile covers historical and comparative linguistics, phonology, phonetics, psycholinguistics, and neurolinguistics, and brings together traditional and innovative methodologies in a unified research enterprise. Professor Lahiri commented that she is especially gratified that her discipline, linguistics, not often in the public limelight, was among those commended.
The Faculty of Linguistics congratulates Dr John Lowe for his outstanding success in winning the prestigious ERC Starter Grant 2019: ERC Starter Grant 2019. This highly-coveted funding rightly recognises the worth of Dr Lowe’s proposal: “Linguistics from India: new ideas for modern linguistics from ancient India”. These grants enable the selected scientists build their own research teams, creating an estimated 2,500 jobs for postdoctoral fellows, PhD students and other staff at the host institutions.
Combined University and College salary £47,263 — £63,463 p.a.
