Wichita State University, an Innovation University transforming the world, is seeking applicants for a 12-month, tenure-eligible, faculty position (assistant or associate rank) in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders. A PhD or PhD/AuD in Audiology, Speech and Hearing Sciences, or a comparable area (will consider ABD) and ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence in Audiology (CCC-A) are required.  Prior university teaching and research experience is preferred.

This faculty member will be responsible for teaching courses in the AuD program, conducting research, supervising student capstone projects, and mentoring PhD students as needed.  Some clinical supervision of practicum experiences in-house could also be a portion of the responsibilities of this position.

Wichita State University is located in the largest metropolitan area in Kansas.  The Department of Communication Disorders and Sciences is housed within the College of Health Professions, and offers the BA, MA, AuD and PhD degrees.  The state-of-the-art Evelyn Hendren Cassat Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic provides both speech pathology and audiology diagnostic and therapy services.  Five clinical research labs (including one dedicated to audiology) are available for faculty and student endeavors. An Audiology Simulation Lab has been developed and is being expanded for student instruction and faculty research projects.

Wichita has vibrant music, art and theater offerings, and also a wide range of sports teams and venues.  Ranked 30th overall (among 150 cities) as “family friendly,” the cost of living in Wichita is affordable, and commuting time within the city is reasonable.
