Applicants should be prepared to teach at the graduate and undergraduate levels, pursue programmatic research, interact collaboratively to support the clinical and academic programs of the School, advise and mentor 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 Audiology are preferred.

We are excited to welcome motivated, team-oriented candidates with a variety of interests and expertise in the hearing sciences that will compliment and expand our existing programmatic strengths. Our School is growing across multiple areas, including increased interprofessional training opportunities, development of innovative and engaging courses, and increased community engagement through scholarly partnerships and outreach. 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 Diversity in CSD). 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 research, teaching, mentoring, and/or lived experience.
Our program offers graduate degrees in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology, and research-oriented PhDs in hearing science, neuroscience, and speech science. We also recently established a presence in undergraduate education with an emphasis on American Sign Language and Deaf studies.
The School is housed within state-of-the-art teaching, research, and clinical facilities. Collaborative opportunities exist within the School and with other units in the University, including strong affiliations with the School of Public Health, Department of Psychology, and 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.
