research in an area of translation technology or language technology.
Such areas include, among others, Machine Translation, Corpus
Linguistics, CALL and Terminography. Candidates should be close to
completing a PhD or should already have done so. 

The successful candidate will be expected to teach, as appropriate, on
the degrees in Applied Languages, Translation Studies or Applied
Computational Linguistics. He or she will join a vibrant research team
based in SALIS, but with strong links with colleagues in Computer
Applications and Electronic Engineering. Supervision of theses at
undergraduate and postgraduate levels will form part of the duties of
the appointee, who will also be expected to make a contribution to the
School's administrative work and to the fulfilment of the School's
strategic objectives.
