Associate Professor / Assistant Professor in Translation or Interpreting, Department of Translation, Interpreting and Intercultural Studies, Hong Kong Baptist University, Hong Kong. Deadline: 17 August 2019.
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.
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.
