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).
