Dr. Jörg Zinken
I joined the Department of Psychology as a Senior Lecturer in 2003 after completing my Ph.D. in Linguistics in Bielefeld (Germany), Lublin, and Warsaw (Poland).
I teach on the BSc Psychology course and on the MSc Psychological Research Methods. I am unit coordinator for:
- Qualitative Research Methods for Psychologists, BSc Psychology
- Interpreting Interaction, BSc Psychology
- Research-Based Learning, BSc Psychology
Research group affiliation:

My research concerns the linguistic mediation of activities, in particular the accomplishment of cooperative embodied activities and how such activities are resourced by the grammatical structures of a language. This research has been funded by the British Academy, the Economic and Social Research Council, and most recently the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
