Assistant/Associate Professor

Assistant/Associate Professor

DISCIPLINE Speech-Language Pathology

The Department of Speech and Hearing Science in the College of Arts and Sciences at The Ohio State University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor with expertise in the area of bilingual speech-language pathology. Although the position would be 100% within the Department of Speech and Hearing Science, it has been developed in collaboration with Ohio State’s Department of Spanish and Portuguese with the goal of creating a robust bilingual speech-language pathology program. The successful candidate will strengthen the existing collaboration with Spanish and Portuguese and be integral in the development and implementation of the bilingual SLP program. Experience and/or interest in curriculum development and pedagogical best practices in bilingual speech-language pathology and clinical instruction would be highly valued.


The Department of Speech and Hearing Science is positioned within the College of Arts and Sciences and the Division of the Social and Behavioral Sciences. It consists of 22 full-time faculty across the tenure, clinical, and research tracks. The Department has four main academic programs: the BA in Speech and Hearing Science, MA in Speech-Language Pathology, AuD in Audiology, and the PhD. In addition to maintaining an active research program, candidates are expected to contribute to the Department’s teaching and service missions by teaching, advising, and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students. Successful applicants will have opportunities to teach courses in basic speech-language sciences, as well as courses in more clinically applied areas associated with their area of expertise. In addition, they will have the opportunity to take a central role in building the bilingual SLP curriculum. The Ohio State University has a strong institutional commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion in all areas. We favor candidates who can promote interdisciplinary perspectives, intercultural understanding, sensitivity and respect among our departmental community and the patients and families whom we serve.


Through the Race, Inclusion and Social Equity (RAISE) initiative, Ohio State is enhancing our world-class research program on race, inclusion, and social equity. Over the next decade, the university will add at least 50 tenure-track faculty members to existing scholars whose research can help to narrow social disparities in educational attainment, health outcomes, rates of incarceration, political representation, environmental impacts, and economic well-being. Adding scholars in focused areas will enhance the University’s outstanding faculty and inform solutions to intractable issues. RAISE is part of Ohio State’s larger initiative to expand the size and impact of Ohio State’s faculty over the coming decade, while also enhancing academic and personal resources to support Ohio State scholars, educators, and practitioners through all phases of their careers.


Qualifications: Applicants must have a PhD in Speech and Hearing Science, Communicative Disorders, or a related field and must possess clinical certification and/or eligibility for licensure in Ohio as a speech-language pathologist. Language proficiency in Spanish is also expected.  The successful candidate will demonstrate a record of publications in peer-reviewed journals or an emerging publication record, and evidence of potential for extramural funding (e.g., National Institutes of Health, NSF). We seek candidates who demonstrate multicultural competence, or the awareness, knowledge, and skills needed to work with others who are culturally different from self in meaningful, relevant, and productive ways. Willingness to work collaboratively with faculty and to mentor students from a wide range of cultures and academic backgrounds is essential. 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.


The Ohio State University is committed to enhancing academic excellence. Recruiting, supporting, and retaining faculty of the highest caliber is a core component of this commitment. In support of this, The Office of Academic Affairs (OAA) has created the Office of Dual Careers and Faculty Relocation (DCFR) to focus on supporting new and prospective faculty. This support includes dual careers services, consultation and resources related to relocation, as well as identifying opportunities to engage on campus and the surrounding community. While employment opportunities are not guaranteed, resources and consultation are available to support the partners of new and prospective faculty as they are considering The Ohio State University and throughout their transition.


The Ohio State University is committed to establishing a culturally and intellectually diverse environment, encouraging all members of our learning community to reach their full potential. Over the next few years, The Ohio State University is committed to welcoming 350 new faculty hires, many of which will contribute to growing our role as a premier research university equipped to answer and interrogate the critical domestic and global societal challenges that deter equality and inclusion.

The Ohio State University believes in diversity in people and ideas. What Ohio State does matters. And how we do it matters. When we are at our best, we make a real difference to people. We believe that the university should be a place where people can work and learn together in a safe environment, free of violence, harassment, discrimination, exploitation, and intimidation. As such, finalists for any faculty position that carries tenure must sign an authorization and disclosure form, which will allow current or prior employer(s) to share information to the University regarding any findings of employment-related misconduct or disciplinary proceedings against a candidate and/or any pending investigations related to alleged misconduct. Such information shall include findings and pending investigations with respect to sexual harassment, violence, or harassment; research misconduct; financial fraud or misconduct; foreign influence violations, grant misuse or misconduct; and/or any other type of finding or pending investigation relating to a candidate's employer's policies and rules governing faculty conduct that may reasonably be expected to affect a candidate's appointment. If the University becomes aware of any past finding of misconduct or pending investigations that were not disclosed, Ohio State will treat that as a serious omission and reserves the right to rescind an offer or terminate employment. https://oaa.osu.edu/faculty-misconduct-reference-check
