IMLR and IALS seek ECR in Translation Studies

The IMLR has recently launched a new collaborative project with the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, exploring the under-researched world of legal translation. While translation studies has developed into one of the most rapidly growing fields of modern language research during recent years, aspects of legal translation have historically received very little attention. The new project will draw together the world-leading expertise and resources of the two institutes to create a hub of research exploring the range of themes surrounding the translation of legal texts and speech. An early career researcher is currently sought to take a leading role in the development of this exciting and demanding project. The successful candidate will establish new collaborative links with academic and industry partners locally, nationally, and internationally, and create events bringing together professional practice and scholarly thought. Ideally, applicants will have completed a doctorate in translation studies, have some post-doctoral experience and clear research interests in legal translation. Candidates with experience of working professionally as legal translators are particularly encouraged to apply.
