12-month tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor position: Speech-Language Pathology

DISCIPLINE Speech-Language Pathology TYPE Faculty

The School of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Memphis is seeking applicants for a tenure-track position in Speech-Language Pathology at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank. Expected start date is August 15, 2022, with earlier start dates possible.


Applicants should be prepared to teach at the graduate and undergraduate levels, pursue programmatic research, interact with the clinical and academic programs of the School, advise students, and provide service to the School and University. Applicants must have earned a PhD or other research doctorate by the start date, and clinical certification and eligibility for state licensure in SLP are preferred. Candidates with a record of publications and success or likelihood of success in obtaining extramural funding commensurate with rank will be strongly preferred.


We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in developmental language or speech sciences involving applications to neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism. Interests in related areas, e.g., multiculturalism, literacy, phonology, or medical speech-language pathology are welcomed, and experience with online delivery is preferred. Because our School and University have established areas of strength in cognitive and neurological sciences and development of speech and language, candidates prepared to build on these strengths may especially thrive in our setting.


Our historically top-ranked program offers graduate degrees in Speech-Language Pathology, Audiology, and research-oriented PhDs in SLP, audiology, and neuroscience. We are also establishing a presence in undergraduate education with an emphasis on American Sign Language. The School is housed in a new building with state-of-the-art teaching, research, and clinical facilities. Many collaborative opportunities exist within the School and with other units in the University, including strong affiliations with the Institute for Intelligent Systems which focuses on interdisciplinary cognitive science, artificial intelligence, developmental, and educational research (see www.memphis.edu/iis/). We also have strong links to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare system, the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, and other local clinical, educational, and medical communities.


The University of Memphis is an EE/AA employer, and the School is committed to growing a diverse student body, faculty, and staff to guarantee inclusion of ideas, practices, and expertise across the breadth and depth of the human experience (see www.memphis.edu/csd/diversity/diversitygoals.php). Consistent with this mission, we seek to recruit, develop, and retain the most talented people from a diverse candidate pool who will increase diversity, equity, and inclusion through their research, teaching, mentoring, and/or lived experience.
