We invite applications for Visiting Scholars on the new European Master’s in Technology for Translation and Interpreting (EM TTI) course.

We encourage visiting scholars who can show teaching and research experience with an industrial emphasis in the subjects taught within the EM TTI modules <https://em-tti.eu/about-masters/list-of-modules/>.


*Deadline*: 31^January 2021

Applicants are invited to apply as a Visiting Scholar at one of the following three Partners:

* University of Wolverhampton, UK

<https://em-tti.eu/about-masters/em-tti-universities/university-of-wolverhampton/> or

* University of Malaga, Spain



* New Bulgarian University, Bulgaria



*Scholars/guest lecturers should:*

* demonstrate outstanding academic and/or professional experience;

* bring concrete added value to the EM TTI intake in terms of

student-centred teaching, research activities, Master’s thesis

support, academic and professional networking, etc.;

* following their visiting scholar activities, contribute to the

promotion and dissemination of the Erasmus Mundus Programme and,

more specifically, the EM TTI programme at their university and

country of origin;

* write a short report and testimonial for use on the Consortium

website and for inclusion in reports to the EACEA.

Priority will be given to applicants who wish to work on a joint

research funding application/research project or joint publication

with academic(s) at the proposed EM TTI host university.


*Benefits for Visiting Scholars and the EM TTI Consortium*

* You will benefit from extending your professional networks to

include successful EM TTI students, and will provide a bridge

between existing networks in Europe and abroad.

* You will be able to further enhance the programme and contribute

directly to the assessment of students, for example setting and

marking assignment materials.

* Visiting Scholars will be very beneficial to the students in

demonstrating that even with very different problems to solve, good

researchers have a common scientific perspective, regardless of

their background in terms of country, language and culture.

* Visiting Scholars will be invited to act as referees for the

publication of research papers of excellent academic quality,

written by the students based on their project dissertations in a

series of technical reports.

* Talks or seminars given by our visiting scholars will be recorded,

and also made available through the EM TTI website, YouTube, and

advertised on social media.


*Funding available and duration*

Teaching will initially be conducted online but as the situation

with COVID-19 improves, on-site teaching may be possible later in

the Spring. Fees for online teaching are EUR 120 per day (local tax

may apply),for a typical (and not exceeding) 4 hours teaching day.

On-site Visiting Scholars will receive a grant of EUR 1,200 per week

(local tax may apply), which will include all travel, accommodation,

and additional subsistence costs. Scholars paid by other EU funds

may not apply. Further details about the grant will be circulated to

the Visiting Scholars post the acceptance phase.

Online teaching may be as short as one or two days, while on-site

teaching is expected to last for a minimum of one week and a maximum

of three. We aim to find working arrangements that benefit both the

Visiting Scholar and the students.


*Application process*

The selection process will ensure that visiting scholars are

well-known and established specialists in their particular fields,

whose expertise is relevant to the core partners’ module diets,

enabling them to make a significant contribution to the delivery of

the EM TTI programme as a whole.
