I am eager to know whether there are post-doctoral or research fellowship programs for interpreting studies? Is there anybody here familiar with such programs related to applied linguistics, translation studies and interpreting studies?

Hi Mohamad, Since noone had answered this question I consulted at expert at ETI Geneva who is not signed up to this site for you and got this answer...

Although we don't publish post-doc positions as they are linked to research grants we obtain for which we usually have candidates locally who have worked in the lines of research we pursue, you should nevertheless consider working through your own national channels and see whether you get a portable research grant. Countries usually have National Research Councils that award research grants, doctoral and post-doctoral fellowships, etc. Once you have identified such a source you can then survey the various web sites of interpreter training programs and see whether they run research projects that correspond to your own experience and interests. Once you have found such a program you can then contact the university in question and see whether you can come with your own funding and participate in ongoing research projects. You can also go through the EU web site, find specific country programs that the EU supports, or that your own country promotes.
