The Research Group in Computational Linguistics (RGCL)
(http://rgcl.wlv.ac.uk <http://rgcl.wlv.ac.uk/>) at the University of
Wolverhampton seeks to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Translation
Technology. You will contribute to the area of ‘Translation Technology’
which has taken off as a result of the EXPERT project and the RIF-3
funding received, and provide more teaching capacity on our new Master
Programmes, especially the Erasmus Mundus Master ‘Technology for
Translation and Interpreting’ (EM TTI). You will be expected to produce
REF-returnable outputs, attract external income, seek industrial
collaborations, teach at Masters level and supervise PhD students. We
welcome any outstanding individuals whose research enhances or
complements the topics already pursued by RGCL.
You will hold a PhD (or equivalent) in a field related to machine
translation, translation technology, or computational linguistics, and
will have carried out extensive research in the area at a university,
research institute or in a related part of the private sector in the UK
or abroad. You will be proficient in a range of subject-specific skills
and ideally will have extensive experience in site-based research
settings. You will be able to demonstrate the ability to work
independently to develop new research objectives and proposals including
contributing to the securing of external funding and collaborative projects.
You should have evidence of an individual track record in research which
is at the cutting edge of the field of machine translation/translation
technology and is recognised internationally (e.g. through publications
in journals). You should have experience in applying for funding from
external sources and, ideally, successfully completed projects. You
should have teaching experience and a track record in supervising
Masters/PhD students. Applications from candidates with strong
computational background and knowledge of using deep learning for
computational linguistics are encouraged.
