The position has a starting date of August 2023. Applicants should submit their application package online at: https://jobs.villanova.edu/. Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2022, and the search will remain open until the position is filled. The Fellows program is designed to enhance the College’s teaching of science to non-science majors through the Mendel Science Experience program and to foster the professional development of recent Ph.D. recipients on a career path leading to faculty positions. Positions are 50:50 research and teaching. Fellows will conduct research in collaboration with the faculty mentor (Dr. Joe Toscano) and will have opportunities to supervise student research. In addition, fellows will team-teach a laboratory science course for non-science-majors and develop and teach an upper level undergraduate or graduate course. Initial appointment is for two years, with a third year possible by mutual agreement between the postdoctoral fellow and faculty mentor. Villanova is a Catholic university sponsored by the Augustinian order. Diversity and inclusion have been and will continue to be an integral component of Villanova University’s mission. The University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and seeks candidates who understand, respect and can contribute to the University’s mission and values. Duties and Responsibilities: Candidates with a background in psychology, neuroscience, linguistics, speech and hearing, or a related field, whose research focuses on speech perception, hearing, and/or language processing are encouraged to apply. We are especially interested in candidates who use or who have plans to use computational modeling, eye-tracking, and/or cognitive neuroscience methods (particularly, event-related potential techniques). The successful candidate will join the Word Recognition and Auditory Perception Lab (PI: Toscano), investigating questions about speech recognition, spoken language processing, and hearing function (more info: http://wraplab.co/ ). The post-doctoral fellow will work with graduate and undergraduate students in the lab, which is equipped with two testing rooms, an audiometric booth, 64-channel active electrode EEG system, auditory brainstem response equipment, and an eye-tracker. The fellow will also be provided with a research budget ($4,000/year) to supplement resources available in the lab and the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences. The fellow will co-teach a Mendel Science Experience laboratory course on speech perception in the fall of 2023, and teach that course or related courses (e.g., Cognitive Psychology) in future semesters. Fellows are expected to teach an upper-level course in their area of expertise during the second year of the fellowship. Minimum Qualifications: Ph.D. in Psychology, Neuroscience, Linguistics, Speech and Hearing Sciences, or a related field is required. Preferred Qualifications: Previous teaching experience preferred.
