Have you ever wondered what it would be like not to be able to communicate your thoughts,
feelings, or ideas? Communication is something many of us take for granted, but for
the millions of individuals who have difficulty hearing, or those who have trouble
speaking because they stutter or they have had a stroke, communication is not so simple.
The University of Memphis School of Communication Sciences and Disorders is nationally
recognized for its academic, research, and clinical education programs for educating
future audiologists, speech-language pathologists, and speech, language, or hearing
scientists interested in helping individuals with such communication disorders. The
School strives to imbue students with the fundamentals of communication processes
and disorders that provokes critical thinking and problem solving that leads to a
love of learning.
The School is currently searching for two faculty positions in Speech-Language Pathology:
A fully funded Ph.D. assistantship with concentration in Hearing Science is available
immediately at the University of Memphis School of Communication Sciences & Disorders.
The prospective student will work under the supervision of Gavin M. Bidelman, Ph.D.
conducting research activity in the Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory (ACNL). Click here to read the full announcement.
