Professor Patrick Rebuschat

Professor of Linguistics and Cognitive Science

Profile

I am Professor of Linguistics and Cognitive Science at Lancaster University, where I also serve as Director of Internationalization at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.

I am also Distinguished International Professor at the LEAD Graduate School, University of Tübingen, and Director of the Heritage Language 2 Consortium (HL2C), a strategic partnership that brings together six leading universities and the Portuguese Ministry of Foreign Affairs. I coordinate the NOVA Lancaster partnership on behalf of Lancaster University and the SLLAT Research Group within the Department of Linguistics and English Language. I also co-direct the Lancaster Language Learning Lab (4L).

I received my PhD from the University of Cambridge and my BA from the University of Lisbon. Prior to joining Lancaster, I taught at Georgetown University, Harvard University, the University of California, Santa Barbara, and the University of Göttingen. I also spent a semester as a Visiting Researcher at the University of Auckland.

If you are interested in joining the Lancaster Language Learning Lab (4L) as a PhD student or postdoctoral fellow, please send me a message.
