The Visiting Assistant Professor will also contribute to the teaching mission of the Department, with a standard teaching load of four courses per year, including both graduate and undergraduate courses in psycholinguistics, quantitative data analysis, and other areas as appropriate given department needs and the Visiting Assistant Professor’s interests and expertise.
