Language and Literacy Positions at Georgia State University
Georgia State University (http://www.gsu.edu) invites applications for up to two anticipated Open Rank Tenure-track (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.
We encourage applicants whose programs of research address basic or applied, conceptual or methodological issues concerning challenges in the acquisition of language and literacy, with particular interests in intervention research.
Applicants must have Ph.D. degrees in one of the disciplines including, but not limited, to communication disorders, psychology, educational psychology, literacy education or special education. We anticipate one position will be filled within 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, having strong records of programmatic research, obtaining external grant support and with a commitment to, and experience in, the instruction of undergraduate and graduate students. We are particularly interested in applicants whose research programs compliment other faculty within this initiative (http://www.researchlanglit.gsu.edu).
Inquiries may be made to Dr. Rose Sevcik ([email protected]) or Dr. Paul Alberto ([email protected]). Submit a curriculum vita, a brief statement of professional goals and research interests, evidence related to teaching interests and effectiveness and three letters of reference, either electronically to Keneé Stephens ([email protected]), with the “Subject” line “Language & Literacy Faculty Search” or by mail, to:
