Princeton University’s Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS) started its Translator-in-Residence program last year, and now they’ve issued a call for applications for this, the second year of the program. There are some changes. In Spring 2019, the TIR will be asked to co-teach a seminar in translation studies as well as mentoring student translators and participating in other courses offered by PIIRS and the Program in Creative Writing. So it’s a proper visiting position with the rank of Lecturer, and – as last year – comes with a salary and an office. The TIR is expected to be an established literary translator with a project in progress. This year’s application deadline is Nov. 10, 2018.
Princeton is a lovely place to spend time for many different reasons that I wrote about last year. If you’re able to clear your schedule to spend the spring there, I’m sure you’ll very much enjoy the experience.
You’ll find more information on this position and application guidelines on the Princeton University website.
