The postdoctoral fellow position is aimed at the HVL and the faculty’s commitment to sign language and sign language interpreting.

The position is linked to the project “Signed Language Depiction as an Engine for Promoting Inclusion, Communication, and Translation” (DEPICT) funded by Research Council of Norway. The main goal of the project is to empirically investigate depiction and what role it has in communication practices within sign language interactions.

The postdoctoral fellow’s project and publications will focus on a relevant topic related to experience and expertise among sign language interpreters in relation to the use of depiction. Work package 6 of the DEPICT project aims to investigate whether depiction is developed over time by active interpreters. We will do so in a cross-sectional, experimental study where participants with different experience will be asked to interpret a dialogue between Norwegian Sign Language and spoken Norwegian. This data will then be analyzed with a focus on depiction.

The period of employment is two years. The postdoctoral fellow will be part of the academic environment within sign language and interpreting at HVL, the research group ‘Sign Language Interpreting and Communication’, and the strategic research program ‘Language, Communication and Learning’ (SKoL). In addition, the candidate is expected to complete the postdoctoral project within the set fellowship period.

The postdoctoral fellow will have his/her place of work/affiliation with the Faculty of Education, Arts and Sports at Campus Bergen.
