The Communication Sciences and Disorders/Speech-Language Pathology programs housed within the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences in the Beaver College of Health Sciences (BCHS) at Appalachian State University invite applications for one or more nine-month, tenure track positions, beginning August 1, 2024. Areas of expertise and rank are open. Responsibilities include teaching undergraduate and graduate courses, both face-to-face and online, conducting research and seeking external funding, and engaging in university and professional service. Opportunities for direct clinical service and clinical supervision may also be available.

Requirements include an earned doctoral degree in speech-language pathology or related area. For appointments at the rank of Assistant Professor, candidates must demonstrate the potential for effective teaching, student mentoring, and conducting research in the area of expertise. For appointments at the rank of Associate Professor, candidates must demonstrate a history of successful teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, student mentoring, and research productivity. 

ABD will be considered for this position. Evidence of successful defense of the dissertation must be received by July 31 for a fall hire or November 30 for a spring hire.

The candidate's salary will also be reduced to a lower rate commensurate with other full-time instructors in the same department. However, if degree verification is provided before the end of the one-year fixed-term contract, the candidate will be returned to the rank of assistant professor with commensurate compensation beginning July 1 of the following academic year. 

All qualified applicants will be considered. Applications are particularly encouraged from candidates with academic and clinical interests in the areas of adult neurogenic communication disorders, fluency, and/or child language.
