Lecturer in Chinese and Translation Studies
University of Hull – Modern Languages – School of Histories, Languages and Cultures
Closes: 14th October 2016
The School of Histories, Languages, and Cultures is seeking to appoint an outstanding lecturer in Chinese and Translation Studies with an excellent research profile in their specialised field. The School has a strong national reputation for teaching excellence: Chinese Studies offered by the School received a top-three ranking in the latest Complete University Guide’s subject table of East and South Asian Studies. The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate how they can contribute to and further excellence in teaching and research in both subject areas.
Applicants must have relevant qualifications and expertise in Chinese and in Translation Studies. The new lecturer will be expected to teach courses on both subjects across a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. Very good understanding of Chinese cultural studies, Translation Studies theory and practice, and intercultural communication are essential to this post.
We are looking for someone who has a strong research record appropriate to this stage of their career, as evidenced by peer-reviewed publications, so that they will be able to make a substantial contribution to the School’s expanding research community. The post-holder will need to demonstrate a track record of or potential for three- and four-star research in terms of the Research Excellence Framework as well as awareness of meaningful research impact. Equally we are expecting willingness to undergo formal training in Higher-Education teaching where such qualifications have not yet been obtained. The post-holder will also be expected to play an active role in the School’s academic administration and to take on other responsibilities as appropriate to this level of appointment.
To discuss this role informally, please contact the Director of Chinese Studies, Dr. Lin Feng.
Candidates should apply using the application form and upload a covering letter and CV.
