Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Translation Technology
The Research Group in Computational Linguistics (RGCL) (http://rgcl.wlv.ac.uk) at the University of Wolverhampton seeks to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Translation Technology. You will contribute to the area of ‘Translation Technology’ which has taken off as a result of the EXPERT project and the RIF-3 funding received, and provide more teaching capacity on our new Master Programmes, especially the Erasmus Mundus Master ‘Technology for Translation and Interpreting’ (EM TTI). You will be expected to produce REF-returnable outputs, attract external income, seek industrial collaborations, teach at Masters level and supervise PhD students. We welcome any outstanding individuals whose research enhances or complements the topics already pursued by RGCL.
You will hold a PhD (or equivalent) in a field related to machine translation, translation technology, or computational linguistics, and will have carried out extensive research in the area at a university, research institute or in a related part of the private sector in the UK or abroad. You will be proficient in a range of subject-specific skills and ideally will have extensive experience in site-based research settings. You will be able to demonstrate the ability to work independently to develop new research objectives and proposals including contributing to the securing of external funding and collaborative projects.
You should have evidence of an individual track record in research which is at the cutting edge of the field of machine translation/translation technology and is recognised internationally (e.g. through publications in journals). You should have experience in applying for funding from external sources and, ideally, successfully completed projects. You should have teaching experience and a track record in supervising Masters/PhD students. Applications from candidates with strong computational background and knowledge of using deep learning for computational linguistics are encouraged.
How to apply
The applications should be made via the University of Wolverhampton's e-recruitment site and applications should include an up to date CV and a cover letter detailing your experience in the area and research plans for the next three years (maximum 4 pages).
Interviews to be held on 28th and 29th April 2020.
Start of the posts: to be agreed with the successful candidate.
