Language and Literacy Faculty Position at Georgia State University

 

Georgia State University (www.gsu.edu) invites applications for one anticipated tenure- track (rank of Assistant) faculty position to contribute to its funded Center: Research on the Challenges of Acquiring Language and Literacy (RCALL). This anticipated position is part of a major initiative to enhance existing strengths in language  and literacy at Georgia State and continues our successful hiring in this area. The focus  of RCALL is research with children and adults, with or without disabilities, who face challenges in acquiring language and literacy. In this university-funded Center, more than 40 faculty members from 8 departments in the Colleges of Arts & Sciences and Education & Human Development come together to engage in interdisciplinary research. The Center’s faculty has a broad range of external funding support  including from the Institute of Education Sciences, the National Institutes of Health, and the National Science Foundation.

 

We encourage applicants whose program of research addresses basic or applied, conceptual or methodological issues concerning challenges in the acquisition of language and literacy with a particular interest in intervention research. Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree in special education, psychology, educational psychology, communication sciences and disorders or related areas. The appointment is open to all programs within the Center. The successful applicant will be the individual  who is prepared to take advantage of the interdisciplinary collaborative research opportunities available, has a strong record of programmatic research, can obtain external  grant support, and has a commitment to, and experience in, the instruction of undergraduate and graduate students. We are particularly interested in applicants whose research  complements other faculty within this Center. (www.researchlanglit.gsu.edu).

 

Inquiries may be made to Co-Directors, Dr. Rose A. Sevcik (rsevcik@gsu.edu) or Dr. Daphne Greenberg (dgreenberg@gsu.edu). Submit curriculum vitae, a brief statement of  professional goals and research interests, evidence related to teaching interests and effectiveness, and the names and three letters of reference electronically to Keneé Stephens at kstephens@gsu.edu, with the subject line “Language & Literacy Faculty Search”.  The review of applications will begin on October 15, 2021 and continue until the position is filled contingent on available funding.

 

An offer of employment will be conditional on background verification. Georgia State University is an Equal Opportunity Employer and does not discriminate against applicants due to race, ethnicity, gender, veteran status, or on the basis of disability or any other federal, state or local protected class.
