Language and Literacy Positions at Georgia State University
Georgia State University (www.gsu.edu) invites applications for up to two anticipated tenure-track Open Rank (Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor) faculty positions to contribute to its funded initiative: Research on the Challenges of Acquiring Language and Literacy. These anticipated positions are part of a major initiative to enhance existing strengths in language and literacy at Georgia State. 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 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. We anticipate one position will be filled within the Department of Educational Psychology Special Education and Communication Disorders in the College of Education. Another appointment is open to all programs within the initiative. Successful applicants will be individuals who are prepared to take advantage of the interdisciplinary collaborative research opportunities available within the Language & Literacy Program, 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 Sevcik (email@example.com) or Dr. Amy Lederberg (firstname.lastname@example.org). 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 email@example.com, 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 1, 2014 and will continue until positions are filled contingent on available funding.
An offer of employment will be conditional on background verification. Georgia State University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Institution. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.
