The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at The University of Texas at Austin is seeking an individual to fill a full-time faculty position in the neuroscience of communication beginning in August 2019. A joint appointment with the UT Dell Medical School/Mulva Clinic for the Neurosciences will be considered for candidates with appropriate credentials and experience. Candidates with established research programs and experience in the neurobiology of communication are preferred, with the potential to complement and build programmatically on active research in the Department’s Brain and Behavioral Sciences Laboratory (BBSL). The multiple-PI BBSL aims to foster basic science as well as clinical and translational research in the neuroscience of communication and communication disorders. The BBSL houses state-of-the-art, versatile neuroimaging technologies, including an in-house EEG system and mock MRI scanner, as well as behavioral testing suites with video and audio monitoring, and facilities for computing/conferencing. BBSL investigators are also engaged in research employing MRI/fMRI and ECoG at UT Austin and with outside clinical collaborators. Existing research includes active collaborations with the Department of Psychology, the Department of Neurology at Dell Medical School, and the Institute for Neuroscience at UT Austin.
All current and emerging areas in the cognitive neuroscience of communication will be considered, including neural mechanisms supporting perceptual, motor, and cognitive-linguistic aspects of communication, with potential research methodologies encompassing structural and functional neuroimaging, invasive or noninvasive electrophysiology, genetics, cellular and molecular neurobiology, and computational modeling.
The successful candidate will demonstrate the following professional qualifications: • Evidence of collaborative engagement and successful partnerships in neuroscience research and education • Evidence of research and scholarship productivity and a strong record of success in extramural funding • Experience with undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral teaching and training
This is a 9-month tenure-track position at the Associate/Full Professor Level. Summer teaching associated with this 9-month position is available, but not guaranteed. The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders is CAA accredited and offers BS, MA, AuD and PhD degrees.

About The University of Texas at Austin
The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders is housed in the Moody College of Communication at the University of Texas at Austin. The department includes researchers and clinicians who study and treat speech and language impairments as well as hearing impairments. Speech and language impairments include voice disorders, articulation problems, fluency problems, aphasia, phonological problems, and delays in speech or language. Hearing impairments include partial hearing and deafness. We teach students to understand and treat these challenges throughout the entire lifespan of human development from early childhood through the elder years and encourage them to develop a holistic understanding of the communication process and to investigate new ways to expand the mind’s potential to formulate, absorb, and express ideas. We are consistently ranked one of the top programs in the United States. For example, the most recent version of US News and World Report ranked Speech and Language Pathology #7 and Audiology #13.
