The University of Glasgow is seeking to appoint a Lecturer (LTS) in Translation Studies, as part of the double-degree in partnership with Nankai University (China).

 LTS posts focus on the design and delivery of learning and teaching alongside scholarship (i.e. outputs and other work that relates to the study and practice of learning and teaching within a Higher Education setting).

Translation Studies is one of the priority growth areas within the School, both in research and PGT/PGR. We are looking to appoint an ambitious and enthusiastic colleague to join our staff, many of whom are world leaders in their fields. The successful candidate will actively contribute to developing and enhancing the research profile of Translation Studies within the School while contributing to teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate level and will be required to contribute to the delivery and growth of our successful Msc in Translation Studies programme in partnership with Nankai University (China), as part of the Joint Graduate School.

Applicants are welcome from any area of Translation Studies or Translation theory, and expertise in Chinese would be an advantage, as well as a broad knowledge of both translation theory and professional translation, or the language services industry.

 In this role you will contribute to the delivery of a high-quality student experience by contributing to teaching, assessment and administration associated with undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Translation Studies, and undertake scholarship to enhance learning and teaching in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures. The post will have a particular responsibility for the design, leading and delivery of courses in translation theory and practice, with expertise in Chinese (including language, literature, and culture).
