We are seeking an academic with an excellent PhD and a track record in research, who can represent the subject in both research and teaching (in the B.A. study programme Sprache, Kultur, Translation and in the M.A. study programmes Translation and Konferenzdolmetschen). Applicants will have a main interest in Anglophone cultures and language varieties outside Great Britain, Ireland, the USA and Canada, although the focus of their work can lie either in linguistics or in cultural studies. In either case, research and teaching are expected to address questions pertaining to Translation Studies.

Junior professors are initially appointed as civil servants on a fixed-term basis for a period of three years. After a successful interim evaluation, the employment contract is usually extended for another three years.

The junior professor should independently perform his/her tasks in research and teaching.

The state of Rheinland-Pfalz and the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz consider the close mentoring of students to be important and therefore expect faculty members to be actively present on campus.

The Johannes Gutenberg UniversityMainz is keen to increase the number of women among its scholars and thus encourages women to apply.

Please submit your application including the usual documents (CV in tabular form, details of your academic career, copies of grades and certificates, publication list, overview of courses taught, teaching evaluations and a two- to three-page teaching and research concept) no later than 7th August 2019 in digital form (PDF file) to the
