Description:The Department of Speech and Hearing Science in the College of Arts and Sciences at The Ohio State University invites applications for a new tenure track position at the rank of assistant, associate or full professor, to commence autumn semester 2016. The successful candidate will have expertise in areas related to speech and hearing science and/or speech-language pathology, with basic and/or translational research interests in neurogenic communication disorders and swallowing disorders (dysphagia) and its effects on speech, language and swallowing. Because research in speech and hearing science and speech-language pathology is inherently interdisciplinary, it is expected that the successful candidate will strengthen existing collaborations with other Ohio State units (such as the College of Medicine and The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, the Department of Linguistics and the Department of Psychology) that are relevant to the candidate's area of expertise. This individual will contribute to the department’s teaching and service missions. He/she will teach courses in basic speech-language sciences as well as courses in more clinically applied areas associated with her/his area of expertise and participate in service activities in the department, college, and university. The Department of Speech and Hearing Science consists of 17 full-time faculty, 4 jointly appointed faculty, 2 research associates, 5 clinical staff/faculty and additional adjunct faculty. The department has four main academic programs: BA in Speech and Hearing Science, MA in Speech-Language Pathology, AuD in Audiology, and the PhD.
Applicants must have a PhD in Speech and Hearing Science, Communicative Disorders, or a related field at the time of application. Postdoctoral training or equivalent experience will be preferred. The successful junior candidate will possess training under an internationally-recognized expert, an emerging publication record, and strong potential for extramural funding (e.g., National Institutes of Health, NSF). For consideration at the rank of tenured associate professor or professor, the successful applicant must have a significant record of scholarly productivity, a national/international reputation and evidence of a fundable research program. Appointment is contingent on the university’s verification of credentials and other information required by law and/or university policies, including but not limited to a criminal background check.
