UCLouvain seeks to recruit
A full-time academic in Translation and Interpreting Technologies
Main campus: Louvain-la-Neuve
UCLouvain is in the top 1% of universities worldwide. Founded in the heart of Europe in 1425, the university brings together 40,000 students and 6,000 staff members on nine campuses in Brussels and Wallonia. Research and education activities are organised in 14 faculties, 22 research institutes, five learning centres and 18 libraries. UCLouvain also has two university hospitals.
UCLouvain is a major player in the transition to a sustainable society. The challenges of the ecological crisis are integrated into courses and the university develops numerous local projects (such as a university farm and sustainable campuses). As a digital university, UCLouvain is involved in open science and education, and trains academics in innovative teaching practices through its Louvain Learning Lab. Thanks to two science parks, the university’s research benefits from interaction with 250 companies and three incubators, which is fuelled further by being at the centre of a region driven by technological innovation.
UCLouvain has a long tradition of international collaborations for teaching and research through partnerships across the world. As a member of the Circle U. European University alliance, the university offers a unique opportunity to work in an environment of interconnected campuses across Europe (London, Paris, Berlin, Vienna, Pisa, Belgrade, Aarhus and Oslo).
The university has a gender and inclusion policy which prioritises equity and respect. Working at UCLouvain means contributing to the development of every individual’s skills and promoting the values of equality, transparency and efficiency.
Within the Faculty of Philosophy, Arts and Letters and the Institute for Language and Communication, Social Sciences and Humanities Sector, post duties include teaching, research and community service activities.
You will teach mainly in the field of translation and interpreting, in particular courses at master’s level related to translation and interpreting technologies (machine translation and post-editing, computer-aided translation and interpreting tools, artificial intelligence applied to translation and interpreting) and practical translation or interpreting courses from one of the languages taught at the Louvain School of Translation and Interpreting of the FIAL faculty. You will also supervise master’s dissertations and study placements.
You will develop your research activities, including research programme management, in the field of human-machine interaction and translation and interpreting technologies, and particularly in the fields of machine translation and post-editing, artificial intelligence applied to translation/interpreting/terminology, and computer-aided translation and interpreting. You will supervise PhD theses.
Once you are tenured, you will carry out various service activities and responsibilities within the institution, such as programme committee and study jury roles and management responsibilities within the faculty or research institute.
You will also contribute to serving society, particularly in the economic, social, cultural or development cooperation fields. Finally, you will ensure, through research and teaching activities, the university’s international visibility.
You have a PhD in Translation and Interpreting Studies or a comparable field. You have completed it with an extended study period abroad or significant experience outside your home institution.
You have a proven track record in university teaching, evidenced where possible by formal evaluations. Your scientific experience is demonstrated by publications of international standing.
You work well as part of a team of teachers and integrate research results into your teaching. You are capable of conducting high-level scientific research, from obtaining funding to team management. You are creative, open to pedagogical innovation and multidisciplinarity.
You communicate in French and English. If this is not the case, you undertake to acquire a C2 command (European Framework of Reference for Languages) of these two languages within two years of taking up your post. Knowledge of other languages taught at the Louvain School of Translation and Interpreting is an asset.
