Tenure Track Assistant Professor

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 initiative: Research on the Challenges of Acquiring Language and Literacy. 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 this initiative is research with children and adults, with or without disabilities, who face challenges in acquiring language and literacy. In this university-funded initiative, more than 40 faculty members from 10 departments in the Colleges of Arts & Sciences and Education & Human Development come together to engage in interdisciplinary research. The initiative’s faculty has a broad range of external support including two national research and development centers from the Institute of Education Sciences in the areas of deafness and adult literacy and grants from the National Institutes of Health including a learning disabilities research innovation hub on reading and reading disabilities of African American children and a program project on neurocognitive factors for children with developmental dyslexia.

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 initiative. The successful applicant will be the individual who is prepared to take advantage of the interdisciplinary collaborative research opportunities available within the Language & Literacy Initiative, have a strong record of programmatic research, obtain external grant support, and have a commitment to and experience in the instruction of undergraduate and graduate students. We are particularly interested in applicants whose research programs complement other faculty within this initiative (www.researchlanglit.gsu.edu).

Inquiries may be made to Dr. Rose A. Sevcik (rsevcik@gsu.edu) or Dr. Amy Lederberg
(alederberg@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 either electronically to Keneé Stephens at
kstephens@gsu.edu, with the subject line “Language & Literacy Faculty Search”, or by
mail to Attn. Ms. Keneé Stephens, Georgia State University, Language & Literacy
Initiative, P.O. Box 5010, Atlanta, GA 30302-5010, USA. The review of applications
will begin October 13, 2017 and will continue until the position is filled contingent on
available funding.

An offer of employment will be conditional on background verification.
