Specialty Areas: Applied Linguistics; Cognitive Science; Language Acquisition; Psycholinguistics
As part of the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences, the Callier Center provides outstanding opportunities for interdisciplinary research into basic and applied aspects of communication sciences and disorders, psychological sciences, and cognition and neuroscience. The Callier Center’s two locations house research laboratories with cutting-edge equipment to integrate areas as diverse as neuroscience, speech processing, auditory and visual perception, functional brain imaging, electrophysiology, kinematics and behavioral sciences. In addition to an on-site preschool, the center houses outpatient clinics and programs that serve adults and children with a variety of speech, language, and hearing disorders. Callier has ongoing collaborations with the UT Dallas Center for BrainHealth, the UT Dallas Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science, The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, and hospitals, clinics, schools, and rehabilitation facilities in the north Texas area.
Research programs at the Callier Center address the broad themes of communication development, disorders, and technologies. Research in communication development includes studies of processing in adults (Assmann), children and infants (Spence); electrophysiological and other correlates of language acquisition (Maguire, Dollaghan); psychoacoustic processing and speech perception (Thibodeau, Martin); preliteracy (van Kleeck); and bilingual child language development (Rojas). Research in communication disorders includes studies of individuals with hearing impairments and cochlear implants (Tobey): autism (Rollins, Stillman); neurologic deficits (Campbell, Katz, Ulatowska) and the neurological correlates of Specific Language Impairment (Evans). Communication technologies under investigation include amplification devices (Roeser). In addition, two new Callier initiatives address Autism Spectrum Disorders and the quality of scientific evidence for clinical decision making. For more information about the current research visit our website at the department URL above.
The Callier Postdoctoral Fellow will receive two years of full-time support to develop a program of independent research in a field related to communication sciences and disorders, including psychology, linguistics, and neuroscience in collaboration with one or more of the Callier Center faculty. Researchers in the hearing sciences are especially encouraged to apply. The Fellow will be appointed as a UT Dallas Faculty-Research Scientist with an 11 month salary of approximately $48,000, and a standard benefits package, financial support for travel and research supplies.
The successful candidate will have a doctoral degree in a relevant field and a record of scholarly productivity appropriate to his or her history. Preference will be given to applicants whose research will use the Callier Center’s unique resources to extend its research portfolio.
Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a one page cover letter describing the applicant’s research interests and how those interests relate to communication sciences and disorders, up to three scholarly publications, and three letters of recommendation to the application URL below. For more information, please contact Mandy Maguire, PhD at the contact email address below. Review of applications will begin December 15, 2013 and continue until the position is filled.
The University of Texas at Dallas is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
