The Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences at Indiana University is seeking candidates for two positions at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor in the areas of speech science, language science, or speech-language pathology. Researchers incorporating diverse methodologies to understand motor speech disorders and/or bilingualism are especially encouraged to apply. Both positions are tenure track, 10-month appointments with an anticipated start date of August 1, 2023.

Responsibilities include research, teaching, service, and mentorship of students. A Ph.D. in Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences or related field is required at the time of hire. Successful applicants will also demonstrate a commitment to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the academic community.

The Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences has accredited and highly ranked clinical programs in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology and awards Bachelors, Masters, Au.D, and Ph.D. degrees along with a minor in American Sign Language. With over 40 faculty, the Department is diverse and collegial and hosts a thriving interdisciplinary community. The Master’s program in Speech-Language Pathology trains student clinicians to serve those with speech and language disorders across the lifespan and has a bilingual Spanish-English track that trains bilingual clinicians to serve Latinx communities. Our research is connected to other departments and programs on the Bloomington campus, such as Psychological and Brain Sciences, Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, Linguistics, Second Language Studies, and the School of Medicine. The Speech-Language Clinic serves clients across the life span with a wide range of language, cognitive, and speech disorders including providing assessment and treatment for bilingual clients.

At the end of 2020, the Department moved to a brand-new state-of-the art facility, the Regional Academic Health Center. The facility houses the Speech-Language and Hearing Clinics and laboratories and is connected to a new Bloomington hospital. The proximity to the hospital and other units on campus (nursing, social work, and medical sciences) creates opportunities for collaborations among faculty, provides interprofessional education for students, and facilitates patient-oriented research.
