Translation Studies and Modern Languages, School of Languages and Cultures, University of Sheffield, England. Deadline: 29 March 2023.
The School of Languages and Cultures wishes to recruit a Lecturer in Translation Studies and Modern Languages from 1 September 2023, or as soon as possible thereafter. If you’re committed to helping to develop the study of modern languages, culture and translation at university level, they would love to hear from you; they are particularly keen to hear from candidates with an interest in or experience of audio-visual translation. Current staff have a range of research interests in research in European cultures and languages, including those now widely spoken and used across the Americas and Africa. Areas of academic specialisation include intercultural communication, linguistics, translation, literature, migration studies, visual studies, history and intellectual history.
You will contribute to teaching at both BA and MA level, forging links between our undergraduate and postgraduate curricula. The successful applicant will engage in high-quality research activity, undertake administrative duties, supervise PhD students as appropriate, and contribute fully to the life of the School commensurate with their grade. You will have a PhD in Translation Studies, a Modern Language, or another relevant subject area (or have equivalent experience), proven teaching ability, and the capacity to carry out high-quality research involving bids for large-scale research project funding. You will also have an interest in contributing to the current Knowledge Exchange and Commercialisation activities in translation. Near-native level of proficiency in two languages, one of which must be English, and the ability to supervise and monitor the work of research students is essential.
