Assistant Professor in Peninsular Spanish and Translation Studies, Nottingham University

We are seeking to appoint an Assistant Professor in Peninsular Spanish and Translation Studies to make a significant impact within the teaching and research areas of Peninsular Spanish Studies and Translation Studies in the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures.

The Department of Modern Languages and Cultures is one of three departments within the School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies. The School is a leading centre for the study of Modern Languages and Cultures offering first degrees (BA) and both taught and research postgraduate degrees, delivering internationally recognised research across our departments. We also work closely with The University of Nottingham’s campuses in China and Malaysia. Within the School and Department, the Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies Section provides a wide range of teaching and research expertise: we work within and across disciplines that include history, literary studies, translation studies, cultural studies, queer studies, cultural history, critical theory and visual cultures, and across contexts that include Spain, Cuba (including the Centre for Research on Cuba), Peru and other Spanish-speaking contexts; and Portugal, Brazil and other Lusophone contexts. Also within the Department, the Translation Section provides key teaching including a high-achieving B.A. programme and three high-recruiting Master’s programmes. Our research focuses on cultural transfer, AVT, and political, institutional and commercial aspects of translation. The Translation Section is home to the Research Centre for Translation and Comparative Cultural Studies.

Our School thrives through the different ideas and experiences of colleagues, who come from a mix of cultures and backgrounds. We strive to foster a welcoming, inspiring and supportive workplace. We are seeking applications from candidates whose background, experience and identity broadens and enhances the diversity of our existing team and would especially welcome applications from members of groups who are currently underrepresented in the School, particularly Black, Asian and minority ethnic scholars. We understand that having a mix of perspectives, lived experiences and approaches to teaching and research enhances our day-to-day work and enriches our School community.

You will lead and deliver individual and collaborative teaching and research in the area of Spanish language and culture and Translation Studies at all levels, generate income by developing and winning support for innovative research proposals and funding bids, and design and deliver teaching across a range of modules in Spanish and Translation Studies.

A range of administrative duties to support the operation of the School will also be undertaken including acting as a personal tutor.

Applicants must have a PhD (or equivalent) in a relevant subject area and previous experience of teaching in Translation Studies and in contemporary Peninsular Spanish cultural studies, as well as previous experience of teaching Spanish language as part of degree programmes in Spanish or Spanish American Studies. Applicants should ideally have a track record of high-quality published research.

Deadline for applications: 4 August 2022
