Audiology and Communication Science
Director of Audiology Studies
The Program in Audiology and Communication Sciences (PACS) of the Washington University School of Medicine invites applications for the position of Director of Audiology Studies, to begin with the Fall 2019 semester.
The person in this position will provide leadership and direction to the AuD program and will represent the AuD program at the local and national level. The position responsibilities also include teaching, AuD student advising, coordination of clinical practicum and externship placements and processes, and mentorship of student research projects.
PACS is housed within the School of Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis and closely aligned with its Department of Otolaryngology. Its training programs include the Doctor of Audiology (AuD); Master of Science in Deaf Education (MSDE), Speech and Hearing Sciences (PhD); and an undergraduate minor in speech and hearing. These programs were born out of the pioneering efforts of Max Goldstein, MD. In 1914, he founded Central Institute for the Deaf (CID), where doctors and teachers worked together to serve individuals who were deaf or hard of hearing. Washington University and CID joined forces in 1931, when CID’s established teacher training program became the first deaf education undergraduate program to affiliate with a university, with a graduate program soon following. Its audiology program – one of the first in the country – and a PhD program were established in 1947, building upon CID’s pioneering clinical and research work. In 2003, an affiliation transferred CID’s graduate programs, adult clinic, and research programs to Washington University School of Medicine. The AuD program is consistently ranked among the top in the country and attracts highly-qualified students.
Candidates should possess a Ph.D. degree, appropriate certification and licensure, significant clinical and academic experience, and leadership experience in the field of clinical audiology, commensurate with the needs of an AuD program at one of the country’s leading academic institutions with a rich tradition of success in patient care, education, and research.
Review of applications will begin December 1, 2018, with the position remaining open until filled.
