DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNICATION SCIENCES AND DISORDERS

Associate or Full Professor, Tenured

Faculty with Research Interests in Dysphagia, Normal and Disordered Feeding and Swallowing

 

The past year has magnified the ways that inequities—whether due to race, gender, sexuality, or income—contribute to health disparities. These inequities are a major public health threat and demand a concerted, interdisciplinary effort. At the College of Public Health, we dedicate ourselves to public health in all its parameters, from epidemiology to nursing, from social work to rehabilitation sciences. Social justice has always driven our work, understanding that individual outcomes are intricately tied to the larger systems we inhabit, is the foundation of our college.

 

The Temple University College of Public Health’s interprofessional culture fosters collaboration both within and outside the College.  We value differences among our faculty and believe that we can better serve and understand our Philadelphia community and beyond through the diversity of our individual faculty and our disciplines. Join us in our mission to develop progressive, compassionate researchers, practitioners, and clinicians to build a better tomorrow, grounded in creating the environments and health infrastructure that will make us the healthiest nation.

 

The Position. We seek a mid-career or senior candidate with research interests in normal and/or disordered feeding and swallowing in pediatric or adult populations. Candidates with related interests in nutrition, cancer, or associated communication disorders (developmental, neurogenic, etc.) are encouraged to apply. The selected candidate will enhance our medical Speech Language Pathology training in dysphagia through research and teaching. Collaborative research opportunities with clinical and research faculty are available within the community including the Department, College, and University.

 

Qualifications.  Applicants will hold an earned doctorate in communication sciences and disorders or a related field. CCC and eligibility for state licensure in Pennsylvania are preferred but not required. The candidate will have an active, externally funded research portfolio and an established publication record appropriate to warrant a tenured appointment at the rank of associate or full professor. Salary and benefits are competitive and commensurate with credentials and experience. We value diversity and seek individuals committed to inclusive and anti-oppressive practices in education, research and practice.

 

The Department. Enrolls approximately 350 students and offers a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Speech, Language, and Hearing, and a doctoral degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders. We also offer undergraduate certificates in Linguistics and in American Sign Language and a graduate level Bilingual Emphasis Path. Our MA program is accredited by the CAA and is ranked 25th in the US. We are home to the Eleanor M. Saffran Center, which fosters clinical translational research in cognitive neuroscience and the Temple University Speech Language and Hearing Center which serves highly diverse clientele with a variety of in-house specialty clinics aligning with our areas of research including the Philadelphia Aphasia Community at Temple (PACT) the Childhood Apraxia of Speech, Treatment, Learning, and Education (CASTLE) Center, and specialty voice clinics. Department faculty have federal and foundation research funding in bilingualism, early childhood language disorders, childhood apraxia of speech, hearing loss, aphasia, and Alzheimer’s Disease. In addition to research in department laboratories and the Speech and Hearing Language Center, faculty collaborate across disciplines in the Temple University Brain Research & Imaging Center (TUBRIC).

 

The College. Devoted to an interprofessional environment for education, research, and practice, the CEPH-accredited College of Public Health consists of academic units in the public health disciplines, health professions, and the School of Social Work, enrolling approximately 4,200 students. The College’s research aims to understand the fundamental factors that affect the health and well-being of individuals and populations by examining health problems through foundational research, policy and practice, and the development and dissemination of evidence-based interventions. We focus on social determinants of health and social justice with strengths in cancer, obesity, HIV, substance abuse, mental illness, mobility research, cognition and language, developmental disabilities, organ transplantation and aging. CPH research is funded by the National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, National Science Foundation, Gates Foundation, and other major private foundation, state and federal agencies. The College is home to an Office for Community Engaged Research and Practice, the Center for Obesity Research and Education, and the Collaborative on Community Inclusion. The Office of Clinical Affairs and Interprofessional Education leads our clinical activities, including the COVID-19 RapidVax effort and forward-looking IPE within the College and throughout the university. The college is staffed by a robust complement of seasoned professionals including robust offices of Communications and Marketing, Information Technology, Sponsored Research, and Academic Affairs.
