The University of Macau is a leading higher educational institution in Macao and is making strides towards becoming internationally recognized for its excellence in teaching, research and service to the community. The University is growing rapidly with a number of new strategic initiatives including the relocation to a new campus and the establishment of the largest Residential College system in Asia. The new campus will be 20 times larger than the present one with a projected fast growth of student intake and faculty size. English is the University’s working language.
The Department of English of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities invites applications for the position of Full Professor of Translation Studies.
The Department of English is an expanding and lively scholarly community with a strong international profile comprising three main fields of interest: translation studies, literature and linguistics. In addition to its undergraduate Minor programme in Translation Studies, the department offers MA programmes in Translation Studies and in English Studies, as well as PhD supervision across the range of the department’s expertise. In translation the department has particular strengths in discourse and function-oriented translation studies. Applications in all areas of Translation Studies will be considered, but those in the area of applied Translation Studies will be particularly welcome.
Applicants must hold a PhD in Translation Studies or in related areas. Applicants should have an excellent record of tertiary teaching and supervision experience and a distinguished record of research and publication at an international level. An associate position may be offered if no suitable candidate for a Full Professorship is found.
The selected candidate is expected to assume duty in August 2014.
Position and Remuneration:
Remuneration and appointment rank offered will be competitive and commensurate with the successful applicants’ academic qualification, current position and professional experience.
