The School of English and Languages is seeking to appoint an academic to a permanent position in the Surrey Morphology Group at Lecturer or Senior Lecturer level. Depending on the role and experience level, the successful applicant will be an active researcher with an international profile and experience in managing large research projects, or have demonstrated potential in these areas.
