The University of Macau is the leading higher education institution in Macao,

making great progress towards becoming internationally recognized for its
excellence in teaching, research and service. With the beautiful new campus
(20 times larger than the old one) becoming fully operational recently, the
launch of Asia’s largest residential college system, the establishment of new
schools, and the increasing numbers of students and faculty members recruited
from around the world, UM provides great potential and exciting new
possibilities for growth and development.

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/function-oriented,
corpus-assisted and cognitive translation studies. The Faculty of Arts and
Humanities has also approved the establishment of a Centre for Translation,
Interpreting and Cognition Studies.

related area, teaching experience at tertiary institutions and a track record
of quality research publications appropriate to the rank of Full Professor.
