The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Iowa seeks applications for an Associate to Full Professor whose research examines the development of language and language disorders. We are seeking a scholar with a strong program of research in language development in one or multiple domains (e.g., phonology, semantics, grammar, discourse, reading). Research focus may include both typical and disordered populations across a range of areas that impact language and communication (e.g. developmental language disorder, dyslexia, autism, attention-deficit disorder). Applicants with expertise in the design, implementation and dissemination of evidence-based interventions are particularly encouraged to apply.
The successful applicant will maintain an active program of empirical research, and teach undergraduate and graduate courses in his/her areas of expertise. The University of Iowa offers exciting opportunities for interdisciplinary scholarship across a number of campus facilities and programs, including the Wendell Johnson Speech and Hearing Clinic, the Center for Disabilities and Development, the DeLTA Center, the Cognitive Science of Language Program, the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Neuroscience, and Iowa Center for Reading Research, well as strong collaborations with units such as Psychological and Brain Sciences, Otolaryngology, and the Iowa Neuroscience Institute. Opportunities for implementation science research with area school systems, early childhood programs and publicly or privately affiliated service providers also exist.
The Department and the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences are strongly committed to diversity; the strategic plans of the University and College reflect this commitment. All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply and will receive consideration for employment free from discrimination on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, age, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, religion, associational preference, status as a qualified individual with a disability, or status as a protected veteran.
