Language and Literacy Faculty Position at Georgia State University

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).
