Assistant Professor of Communication Sciences and Disorders (9 month / two positions)

DISCIPLINE Speech-Language Pathology DISCIPLINE Nonspecific TYPE Faculty


The Communication Sciences and Disorders program (CSD) at the Penn State University-Harrisburg campus invites applications for two full-time (9-month), tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level to begin August 2023. For both positions, we seek candidates with the potential to excel in teaching and the desire to pursue scholarly endeavors. In addition, the CSD program at Penn State-Harrisburg has a close collaboration with the Dept. of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the Penn State College of Medicine and depending on the candidate's area of research interest, the ideal candidate will seek to develop a research agenda that utilizes this resource.

The CSD program currently offers an undergraduate degree but has begun the process of starting an M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology. Thus, new faculty will have the opportunity to assist in developing the new graduate SLP curriculum. Penn State-Harrisburg prides itself on being student-focused with small class sizes and numerous opportunities for hands-on and experiential learning.
