Clinical Assistant Professor

Clinical Assistant Professor

DISCIPLINE Speech-Language Pathology

The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders has an opportunity for a motivated professional to be employed in a hybrid position that involves both clinical supervision of our graduate students during their in-house practicum experiences (50% workload) and direct provision of clinical services to clients from the Rio Grande Valley region (50% workload). The ideal candidate should have experience evaluating and treating individuals across the lifespan exhibiting communication and swallowing disorders; supervision training; and an entrepreneurial spirit to carry a caseload of his or her own client base. As this position evolves to the specific needs of the Speech and Hearing Center, there may be opportunities to not only work with colleagues within the discipline, but with members of the School of Medicine as well. Having experience in medical speech-language pathology (e.g., aphasia, dysphagia, and voice disorders) would strengthen the candidate’s application for this position but is not required. UTRGV faculty will be expected to demonstrate a strong commitment to scholarly work, student success and to advancing the university, college, and program missions and are committed to UTRGV’s strategic plan, vision, mission, values and core priorities. (

Minimum qualifications include a professional doctorate (SLP.D.) or master’s degree in communication sciences and disorders or speech-language pathology; CCC-SLP; eligibility for Texas state license. Candidates with at least 5 years of experience working with patients exhibiting a wide range of communication disorders across the lifespan will be given top priority.

Salary is commensurate with the candidate’s qualifications and experience. The program would prefer the candidate start October 1, 2021 but actual start date is negotiable.
