A half-day post-doctoral position (with the option to extend it to a full position) with a focus on online collaborative translation, limited to 6 years is advertised at the Centre for Translation studies (collaboration with Prof. Dr. Cornelia Zwischenberger). It is desirable that the successful candidate writes a habilitation dedicated to the issue of online collaborative translation (e.g. Translation Crowdsourcing, Fansubbing, Fandubbing, Translation hacking etc.) as a specific type of transcultural communication where both the translation product and process are characterised by particular hybridity. Therefore, relevant previous experience with the topic and respective publications should already be available.
The Centre for Translation Studies (ZTW) at the University of Vienna, Austria is one of 20 academic units (faculties and centres) of the University of Vienna. In addition to the area of teaching (transcultural communication, translation studies, translation and interpreting education in 14 languages, etc.), the Centre conducts research in several key research areas. Cutting-edge research is conducted by professors, habilitated staff members, predoctoral and postdoctoral researchers, senior lecturers and many more. More than 120 lecturers teach translation-related subjects to about 3,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students.
