ADAM BRANDT, Ph.D.
- HEAD OF APPLIED LINGUISTICS & COMMUNICATION
- NEWCASTLE UNIVERSITY, UK
I was appointed Lecturer in Applied Linguistics in the School of ECLS at Newcastle University in June 2013, having spent the previous two years as a JSPS Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Kansai University (Osaka, Japan).
Prior to that, I was a student in the School of ECLS, where I obtained my PhD, as well as an MA in Cross-Cultural Communication & Applied Linguistics and an MA in Applied Linguistics Research. I have also spent time in the Department of Second Language Studies at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa (as part of my PhD, in 2009) and the Graduate School of Language and Culture at Osaka University (for a research sabbatical, in 2017).
In September 2018, I took on the role as Head of the Applied Linguistics & Communication subject area at Newcastle University. I am also currently a member of School Executive Board, School Research Committee, and School Teaching & Learning Committee in the School of ECLS. I have previously been Degree Programme Director for our suite of MA Cross-Cultural Communication programmes (2013-2021), and acted as Chair of Board of Studies and Chair of Board of Examiners.
