Jobs: Arabic/English Translation: Senior Lecturer, U of Salford

Editor for this issue: Christy Bird <christylinguistlist.org>

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.

Permanent Full time

The School of Languages has the only major Arabic unit in the United
Kingdom with a central focus on Arabic/English Translation and
Interpreting, Arabic Linguistics and the Teaching of Arabic. It has six
members of staff including one professor and two lecturers in Arabic. The
Arabic staff at Salford have proven strengths in teaching, doctoral
supervision and research.

Following its success in the 2008 RAE in Linguistics and European Studies,
the University of Salford School of Languages has now been approved by the
Saudi Arabian Government for study at BA, MA and PhD levels in
Arabic/English Translation and Interpreting, Arabic/English Interpreting,
Theoretical Linguistics, and Applied Linguistics (including English
Language Teaching).

Staff in the Arabic section at Salford are active and experienced
researchers. In the most recent RAE exercise, three members of the Arabic
section were entered under the University of Salford Linguistic submission,
which scored an overall result of 2.1 (equivalent to 5* in the 2001 RAE
submission). In recent years, the Arabic section has hosted numerous
conferences and other events dealing with Arabic linguistics and
Arabic/English Translation and Interpreting.

The School would now like to appoint a Senior Lecturer/Reader in Arabic to
maintain and enhance the staffing level within Arabic.

Informal enquiries should be directed to Professor Janet Watson, Associate
Head of Research & Innovation (0161 295 4662; j.c.e.watsonsalford.ac.uk)
