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.
Traineeships are limited by federal regulations to U.S. citizens or noncitizen nationals or individuals who have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence at the time of the appointment. Individuals with translational interests who do not meet citizenship requirements for predoctoral traineeships can apply for admission to doctoral study to be considered for other funding. Individuals who are pursuing or have completed AuD degrees and have translational research interests are encouraged to apply for the AuD/PhD program.
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 the following to Chuck Larson, Chairman, Communication Sciences and Disorders, Northwestern University, 2240 Campus Dr., Evanston, IL 60208:
A cover letter stating your research interests and career goals
Two letters of recommendation
Official transcripts of all postsecondary education
