Purdue University is recruiting 6 faculty members who will enhance and complement ongoing efforts in research on autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Areas of specialization are expected to range from molecular, cellular, and organismal through behavioral, educational, and systems levels. New colleagues will join a large cohort of researchers and clinicians committed to interdisciplinary and collaborative investigation of ASD and to making a positive impact on the quality of life of individuals with ASD and their families.

Current active searches associated with the cluster are in Biological Sciences, Education, Psychological Sciences, and Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences (http://www.purdue.edu/hhs/psy/autismclusterhires.php )

The Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level in the area of ASD broadly defined. Primary criteria are excellence in research and teaching. Essential duties include teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Ph.D. in communication sciences or a related field is required for this appointment beginning Fall, 2014.

Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences is a collegial and highly interdisciplinary department with 22 research/tenure track and 15 clinical faculty. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to capitalize on extraordinarily productive networks of collaborators and resources that provide strong support for basic and translational research.  Office and laboratory will be provided in our newly constructed Lyles-Porter Hall with a superb infrastructure for research (http://www.purdue.edu/hhs/slhs/research/index.html).

Purdue has top-ranked clinical programs in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology with strong ties to the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, and ASD service providers in the local community.  There are outstanding collaborative opportunities and access to pediatric and adult ASD populations.

A curriculum vitae, letter of application, selected publications, and three letters of recommendation that address the applicant’s potential in both research and teaching should be e-mailed as attachments to Jane Fenters, Administrative Assistant to the Head, SLHS-search@purdue.edu .
