Senior Lecturer/Lecturer, Department of Translation
The Department of Translation sets out to provide an education in bilingual studies which can produce graduates with competence in Chinese and English as well as capacity to think for themselves. One of its central features is the equal emphasis on translation as a profession and as an academic discipline. Another feature is the importance attached to the socio-cultural environment of the Chinese and English languages. The appointee will be required to teach courses in one or more of the following areas : Practical Translation, Interpreting, Linguistics, Translation and Culture. Excellent command of Chinese and English is a must, and experience of teaching translation theory will be an advantage. Further information on the Department and its programmes and activities can be found on the Department’s website: http://www.LN.edu.hk/tran/.
