The Department of Hearing & Speech Sciences at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine is looking to fill a tenure-track opening at the Assistant or Associate Professor level for an AUDITORY NEUROSCIENTIST. The ideal candidate would have a research program structured to examine central auditory processes with an emphasis on development and plasticity, and would be expected to interact extensively with current departmental faculty as well as with scientists in the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Research on Human Development and the Vanderbilt Brain Institute. The department has existing research strengths in both basic and clinical issues related to peripheral and central auditory processes and in cross-modal (i.e., auditory-visual) function. The neuroscience community at Vanderbilt is highly multidisciplinary, spans the molecular to the systems levels, and employs a wide array of cutting-edge approaches. The successful candidate must have an M.D. and/or Ph.D. degree and should have an existing portfolio of scholarship and extramural support, or show great promise in garnering such support, and will be expected to teach and mentor within the Hearing & Speech and Neuroscience graduate programs. An attractive recruitment package of salary, start-up funds, space and equipment will be offered commensurate with the applicant's qualifications. Vanderbilt University is an equal opportunity affirmative action employer. Women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.

Applicants should send a statement of research interest, CV and 3 letters of reference to:

Mark T. Wallace, Ph.D.
Chair of the Auditory Neuroscientist Search Committee
Department of Hearing & Speech Sciences
Vanderbilt University
465 21st Avenue South
