The College of Health Solutions at Arizona State University invites applicants to join an active and growing speech and language program.  We are seeking a Clinical Assistant or Associate Professor for a 12-month, full time, non-tenure position in the MS Communication Disorders Program who will have a specialty focus in voice disorder. In addition to voice, other beneficial areas include neurogenic communication disorders, pediatric feeding, and fluency. Incoming rank of assistant or associate professor will be determined based on prior experience.  This appointment is expected to begin April 15, 2020.  This is a fixed-term appointment that is renewable annually.  Subsequent one-year appointments may be offered, under the same terms and conditions, at the discretion of the college and university.

Responsibilities include providing a variety of diagnostic and rehabilitative services to patients, supervising SLP Masters students in our in-house clinic and off-site placements, teaching graduate and undergraduate courses in speech-language pathology or related topics, and participating in clinic/program service activities in the development and/or expansion of services within the clinic and/or the Communication Disorders Master of Science program.

This position will also have the opportunity to work with faculty across the college to assist with the college’s Grand Challenges, which are some of the most complex and difficult health challenges facing Arizona. Each Grand Challenge is huge in scope and requires translational research, transformative collaboration and innovation. The college’s Grand Challenges are the following: promoting healthy lifestyles, improving mental health, and reducing barriers to health and health care. We are particularly interested in making an impact on populations with significant health disparities, such as veterans and people experiencing homelessness.

The College values our cultural and intellectual diversity, and continually strives to foster a welcoming and inclusive environment. Veterans and individuals who can strengthen the diversity of the academic community are encouraged to apply.
