Research Assistant - Creative Multilingualism (variable hours)

Job description          

The AHRC-funded Creative Multilingualism programme is conducting research on the interaction between multilingualism and creativity, and rethinking the identity of Modern Languages. We are seeking a research assistant to contribute expertise in psycholinguistics to the Creative Power of Metaphor, one of the programme’s seven research strands. The strand looks at the role of metaphor as a phenomenon that mediates between thought, language and action, and the research will be informed by the fields of cognitive linguistics, rhetoric and literary studies. The project’s objective is to enrich interdisciplinary understanding of metaphor, and in particular investigate the implications of linguistic diversity for the theory and practice of metaphor. You will support the research activities of the strand as required under the guidance of Professor Katrin Kohl, the Principal Investigator of Creative Multilingual and lead for the Metaphor strand. You will have a first degree, hold or be working towards a doctorate in linguistics or psycholinguistics, and a research interest in metaphor including familiarity with the theoretical field. You will have knowledge of, and ideally experience with, psycholinguistic experimental methodologies. In addition, you will have excellent communications skills, including a high level of competence in at least one language other than English. This is a fixed-term variable hours post, available until 30 June 2020. The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 25 September 2019.
