Temple University, based in Philadelphia, PA., is a Carnegie I
research-intensive university with more than 30,000 students. Temple
has distinguished faculties in 17 schools and colleges including a
major health sciences center, including a children's hospital. With
the appointment of a new President and Provost, the Department has a
major initiative to contribute to the University's strategic plan to
become one of the country's premier research institutions.

The Communication Sciences Department is aggressively recruiting two
top researchers in the areas of pre-school and/or school-age language
to complement the Department's strengths in adult language disorders
and bilingual language development. The Department currently enjoys an
interdisciplinary faculty including speech-language pathologists,
audiologists, linguists, and cognitive neuroscientists. The
Department has strong ties to many other departments of the University
including Psychology, Public Health, Special Education, Neurology,
Occupational Therapy, and Physical Therapy, where there is significant
potential for collaboration as well as diverse resources to support
research and clinical activities. The program offers a Ph.D. degree
in Communication Sciences as well as B.A. and M.A. degrees.

Position Requirements. The Department is seeking two scholars who will
add to the vitality of the Department through a defined program of
research that contributes to the child language area. Programs of
research might include, although are certainly not limited to, child
language development and disorders and/or literacy. Applicants must
have a doctoral degree, a publication history that is appropriate to
the rank of appointment, and a successful research agenda that
includes a record of external research funding (senior candidates) or
the potential for such a program (junior candidates). There will be
significant support for research at the Department and College level.
In addition to establishing a major program of research, the
successful candidate will contribute to the department by mentoring
and teaching students.

publications, and a letter outlining research career goals, and the
