Hong Kong Baptist University (CHN:Hk) - Associate Professor / Assistant Professor in Translation or Interpreting (Tenure-track)[edit | edit source]

The HKBU Translation Programme was established in 1990, and from 1 September 2019 will become the Department of Translation, Interpreting and Intercultural Studies, having been awarded full independent departmental status.

The Department offers programmes at BA, MA and Research Postgraduate levels, and is among the most internationalized such departments in the region, with an academic staff that comprises members from Hong Kong, Mainland, Taiwan, Spain, the UK and Australia. The Department has particular strengths in literary translation, minority cultures in translation, and interpreting, and is also seeking to expand its profile in the field of translation technology.

Associate Professor / Assistant Professor in Translation or Interpreting (Tenure-track) (PR0027/19-20) 

The Department is now seeking applicants for the above position. Applicants from all areas of the discipline will be considered. Preference will be given to those with expertise in one of the following clusters: (i) translation technology, translation-related applications of big data, and localization; (ii) interpreting studies; and (iii) minority translation studies. The ability to teach related linguistics courses will be considered an advantage. Given the Chinese/English orientation of the majority of the Department’s course offerings, a command of Chinese is expected.

The appointees will undertake undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, and will be expected to play an active role in research and publication. They will also be responsible for supervision of undergraduate honours projects and postgraduate dissertations at the Master’s and Doctoral level. The appointees are also expected to take on administrative duties.

Applicants should possess a PhD in Translation, Interpreting, Intercultural Studies or other relevant fields; have an appropriate research and publication record and teaching experience at the tertiary level.

Initial appointment will be made on a fixed-term contract of three years commencing January 2020 or as soon thereafter as practicable. Re-appointment thereafter will be subject to mutual agreement and availability of funding.

Rank and salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Application Procedure:

Applicants are invited to submit their applications at the HKBU e-Recruitment System (jobs.hkbu.edu.hk). Applicants are requested to send in samples of publications, preferably the three best ones out of their most recent publications, and latest teaching evaluation results.

The Faculty of Translation Studies, Linguistics and Cultural Studies, FB06, Campus Germersheim, invites applications for the position of

a Junior Professorship of Anglophone Studies (Bes.Gr. W 1 LBesG) to be in post on 01.04.2020.

We are seeking an academic with an excellent PhD and a track record in research, who can represent the subject in both research and teaching (in the B.A. study programme Sprache, Kultur, Translation and in the M.A. study programmes Translation and Konferenzdolmetschen). Applicants will have a main interest in Anglophone cultures and language varieties outside Great Britain, Ireland, the USA and Canada, although the focus of their work can lie either in linguistics or in cultural studies. In either case, research and teaching are expected to address questions pertaining to Translation Studies. The new professor will participate actively in interdisciplinary collaborative projects and show a commitment to external grant capture, contribute to the Faculty’s continuing internationalisation strategy, and be willing to take responsibility for academic administrative tasks. Excellent knowledge of English and German is required.

In addition to the general employment requirements, applicants must meet the recruitment requirements stipulated in section 54 and 55 of the Rhineland-Palatinate Higher Education Act (Hochschulgesetz Rheinland-Pfalz).

Junior professors are initially appointed as civil servants on a fixed-term basis for a period of three years. After a successful interim evaluation, the employment contract is usually extended for another three years.

The junior professor should independently perform his/her tasks in research and teaching.

The state of Rheinland-Pfalz and the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz consider the close mentoring of students to be important and therefore expect faculty members to be actively present on campus.

The Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz is keen to increase the number of women among its scholars and thus encourages women to apply.

Please submit your application including the usual documents (CV in tabular form, details of your academic career, copies of grades and certificates, publication list, overview of courses taught, teaching evaluations and a two- to three-page teaching and research concept) no later than 7th August 2019 in digital form (PDF file) to the

NOTES:

University of Surrey (EU:UK:Eng) - Professor of Language and Translation Technologies[edit | edit source]

Interview Date: Monday 12 August 2019

The University of Surrey is a global university with a world-class research profile and an enterprising and forward-thinking spirit, committed to research and innovation excellence and to benefitting the economy, society and the environment. Our researchers practise their excellence against the backdrop of our broad spectrum of technological, human, health and social sciences, and their uncommonly strong linkages forged in an integrated campus culture of cooperation.

The Centre for Translation Studies (CTS) has been awarded a £3.56m Expanding Excellence in England grantto launch an ambitious new research programme, bringing together human-based research practices with cutting-edge advances in machine learning and AI, and focussing on the convergence of human and automated approaches to different modalities of translation and interpreting in order to initiate a step-change in the broader translation research agenda. We believe this direction of research is critical at a time when advances in automation are reshaping the language services industry into one of the fastest growing industries, nationally and globally. The ‘technological turn’ in translation creates exciting opportunities, but it also requires fresh approaches in order to understand all the dimensions of its impact, to mitigate drawbacks and to derive truly innovative solutions.

To complement existing excellence in CTS in researching applications of technologies in translation and interpreting, we are therefore seeking to appoint a research leader with a proven track record in language and translation technologies, including machine learning and AI as applied to translation, and a strong interest in combining human and automated approaches to translation.

The post holder will develop and lead a research group in translation technologies, driving research in CTS in this area and making a significant contribution to achieving the strategic goals of CTS’s expanding research programme. She/he will also contribute academic leadership to CTS’s translation programmes and develop updates of the programme portfolio to ensure it embraces emerging industry and research trends. 

The successful candidate will be expected to demonstrate world-leading and world-changing research with outputs that are consistently recognised as internationally excellent in the field. She/he will have a significant track record of securing external research funding. Clear evidence of a commitment to collaboration with academic and non-academic partners will be essential as will be evidence of excellence in the development and delivery of teaching and the promotion of student experience.

Please note this post complements further new posts available in CTS. There will also be an opportunity to appoint a post-doctoral researcher in accordance with the research area of the successful candidate.

For an informal discussion regarding this post, please contact Prof Sabine Braun, Director of CTS by email (s.braun@surrey.ac.uk).

We acknowledge, understand and embrace diversity.
