Chair of Experimental Phonetics or of Speech and Hearing Science **************************************************************** University College London intends to make an appointment to the established Chair of Experimental Phonetics, vacant upon the retirement of Prof. Adrian Fourcin. For this important post we are seeking a scientist with an outstanding research record, able to lead teaching and research in one or more of the following broad areas of interest and activity: - spoken language engineering - speech perception and language processing - audiology and speech pathology. Ideally the successful candidate will have an awareness of related developments in other areas of phonetics and linguistics. The Department also has established Chairs in Phonetics and in Linguistics, and there are currently two further Professors of Linguistics. We invite applications particularly from scientists with a background in mathematics, physics, engineering, or signal processing. UCL's Department of Phonetics and Linguistics has an outstanding international reputation and makes a distinguished contribution at an international level of excellence to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and research in all the areas listed above. It has also initiated and is currently co-ordinating Europe-wide research projects in each of them, and is engaged in ongoing collaboration with research institutes in China and the USA. UCL is a leading centre for speech and hearing research, having also a Department of Laryngology and Otology (including a Chair of Audiology) and collaborating closely with the National Hospital's College of Speech Sciences. Although the Chair has hitherto been in Experimental Phonetics, it may be retitled, depending on the person appointed, as (for example) the Chair of Speech and Hearing Science(s). Salary will be negotiable within the professorial range. Further particulars may be obtained from the Head of Department, Prof. J.C.Wells, tel. +44 (0)171-380 7175, fax +44 (0)171-383 4108, e-mail wells(at) Applications (ten copies from UK candidates, one copy from overseas candidates) including a curriculum vitae and the names and addresses of three referees (including at least one overseas referee) should be sent to The Provost, University College London, Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT, to arrive by 15 November 1994. UCL is working towards equal opportunity. ==== * Prof. J.C. Wells * Dept. of Phonetics & Linguistics, UCL, Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT * Tel. +44 (0)171 380 7175 Fax +44 (0)171 383 4108
