scholarship and leadership credentials will be considered, as well.
We are seeking outstanding candidates for the
position of Department Chair of Speech-Language
Pathology and Audiology who will actively oversee
and advocate on behalf of an ASHA accredited

excellence, and recognized internationally.
Responsibilities include providing leadership and
vision at the Department, College, University,

Position qualifications are as follows: 1) a

innovative program development and
interdisciplinary collaboration; and 5) documented teaching effectiveness.
A certificate of clinical competence is
desirable. Applicants from all subfields of

strongly encouraged to apply, although the
Department has particular needs in the areas of
language development and disorders in children.
In addition, Northeastern University supports cluster hires.
The Department of Speech-Language Pathology and

Sciences, offers degrees at the undergraduate and
