The University of Surrey is a global university with a world-class research profile and an enterprising and forward-thinking spirit, committed to research and innovation excellence and to benefitting the economy, society and the environment. Our researchers practise their excellence against the backdrop of our broad spectrum of technological, human, health and social sciences, and their uncommonly strong linkages forged in an integrated campus culture of cooperation. 

The Centre for Translation Studies (CTS) has recently expanded its research, teaching and innovation activities, thanks to an ‘Expanding Excellence in England’ (E3) award by Research England, which focuses on the convergence of human, technology-enhanced and automated approaches to translation, audiovisual translation and interpreting. In line with this, CTS’s research focuses on combining and integrating humanities-based research in translation and interpreting with innovative social research methods, insights from technology studies, and cutting-edge advances in information and communication technologies as well as natural language processing techniques, AI and other data-driven technologies. The centre’s overall aim is to develop and foster human-centric approaches to technology use in translation and interpreting

To contribute to ongoing research in CTS, applications are invited for a Research Fellow position. The successful candidate will have expertise in one or more of CTS’s main research areas. They will have an emerging track record of high-quality research, commensurate with their career stage and will have evidence of the ability to work in a multidisciplinary research team.

This is a fixed-term post until 30 May 2024 but there is a possibility to extend if external research funding can be secured.
