The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Northwestern University is pleased to announce the availability of PhD and postdoctoral fellow positions, funded by an NIH translational research training grant. The goal of the grant is to train young scientists in translational research in communication sciences and disorders, bridging basic and clinical research. Special emphasis is placed on translational projects related to sensory reception, motor control, and language processing. Postdoctoral candidates must hold a PhD in Communication Sciences and Disorders, Cognitive Science, Linguistics, Neuroscience, or a related field.
Trainees will receive funding for two years on this project. Additional funding is available for funding beyond the two years of this project. Interested candidates should send a cover letter stating your research interests and career goals, CV, and two letters of recommendation to Chuck Larson, Chair, Communication Sciences and Disorders, Northwestern University, 2240 Campus Dr., Evanston, IL 60208.
Applications will be reviewed quarterly, but it is anticipated that most positions will be filled at the beginning of the academic year in September.
