Description
The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Texas at Austin is seeking a faculty member to contribute to a University-wide cluster hiring initiative in Diversity in Cognitive Functioning in Late Life. We are seeking a productive scholar whose research focuses on intervention and rehabilitation in pathological cognitive aging. Particular emphasis will be placed on work involving diverse populations (e.g., variability by race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, language/dialect, gender, or sexual identity). Relevant research areas include the nature of normal and disordered cognition and communication in older adults as well as interventions for those at risk for or suffering from dementia or other age-related disorders.

This is a tenure-track position at the Assistant/Associate/Full Professor level. Duties will include teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, research, and service. The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders is CAA accredited and offers BS, MA, AuD and PhD degrees.

Qualifications
Applicants must have a PhD in Communication Sciences and Disorders or a related discipline, have a clearly defined and productive research agenda, and demonstrate a commitment to teaching excellence. We will consider a range of disciplinary, theoretical and methodological expertise.

The successful candidate for this position will be joining the UT Austin faculty as part of the Cluster and Interdisciplinary Hiring Initiative. The initiative is designed to supplement departmentally-based hiring practices and norms and extend collaborative research and scholarship. This new initiative is authorizing up to 40 new faculty hires whose interdisciplinary areas of knowledge cross the boundaries of existing academic departments. The selected candidate will be expected to actively participate as a core member of a cluster entitled Diversity in Cognitive Functioning in Late Life. Contributions to the cluster will be an essential facet of the faculty member's annual performance evaluations and consideration for promotion/tenure.

Faculty hired under the Diversity in Cognitive Functioning in Late Life cluster hire will also participate in the Texas Aging & Longevity Center. New faculty hired under this initiative are expected to have degrees in fields such as human development and family studies, psychology, sociology, neuroscience, communication sciences and disorders, medicine, or other related disciplines. Candidates should have a record of collaborative/interdisciplinary work and funded research.

Application Instructions
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Interested candidates should submit a cover letter that includes a description of fit with the cluster hiring initiative in Diversity in Cognitive Functioning in Late Life and the Texas Aging & Longevity Center, a curriculum vitae, a research statement, a statement of teaching philosophy, and the names of three referees. Confidential letters of recommendation will be requested of finalists.
