The Applied Languages Section of the School of Languages and
Cultures has an excellent reputation for the quality and innovation of
its teaching. Staff in the department have a wide range of teaching

teaching and are active participants in the School's research clusters.

The post-holder will play a leading role in the development of the
Master of Arts (MA) in Multilingual Information Management, teach a
range of language technology-related modules at postgraduate
level, including translation-related technologies, and contribute to
teaching in other areas at both undergraduate and postgraduate
level. S/He will engage in high quality teaching-related research
activity, undertake administrative duties, possibly supervise MA
students as appropriate, and contribute fully to the life of the
Department and the School commensurate with their grade.

Successful applicants will have proven skills and experience in all
the above areas. They will be committed to high quality teaching,
including the teaching of language (most probably translation), and
to excellence in teaching-related research.

It is anticipated that interviews and other selection action will be
between 1 and 10 July 2012. Full details will be provided to invited
candidates.
