The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use
non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge
that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity,
nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we
have no means of enforcing these standards.
Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding
employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international
employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been
set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

The full professorship is a permanent position which includes research,

which we expect the full professor to chair.
The research area is broadly defined as Translation Studies and includes
translation/interpreting theory and research methods and/or empirical
research on translation/interpreting. Although there are no restrictions as
to paradigms or approaches, the research group exclusively deals with
translation for business purposes (non-literary translation). The teaching
obligations will be within the field of translation and business language
at all levels from BA to PhD. As the position involves teaching in
translation between English and Danish, applicants who are not native
speakers of English must hold an MA in English, whereas native speakers of
English must master Danish at near-native level.
The applications will be evaluated by an expert assessment committee.
Priority will be given to candidates with a solid record of original
scientific production at an international level, including development of
the research area in question, i.e. Translation Studies. The candidate's
ability to undertake research management and administrative tasks will also
be taken into account. Finally, the candidate is expected to have the
qualifications required for undertaking teaching responsibilities. Special
contributions to and development of courses, programmes and teaching
methods will be taken into account when assessing the candidate's teaching
qualifications. The successful candidate is expected to take up residence
in the region of Aarhus.
The appointment will be in accordance with the agreement between the Danish
Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional
Associates. The current annual salary is approximately DKK 532,000 (EUR

sabbatical agreement with research sabbatical every 9th semester.
