AVAILABLE: University of Texas, Austin and University of California, San Francisco Postdoctoral/Clinical Fellowship Positions

The Aphasia Research and Treatment Lab at the University of Texas, Austin (PI: Maya Henry, PhD, CCC-SLP) and Language Neurobiology Lab at the University of California San Francisco (PI: Maria Luisa Gorno-Tempini, MD, PhD) are seeking individuals to fill full-time clinical research positions at both lab locations. Research in these two collaborating labs is directed at improving our understanding of how the brain supports speech and language processes; how the cognitive processes and neural structures involved in communication are affected by neurodegeneration; and how targeted treatment programs may improve communication impairments caused by neurodegenerative disease. The labs utilize current approaches in cognitive neuroscience, neuroimaging, and cognitive rehabilitation to address these issues.

Responsibilities will include:

-participant screening, assessment, and treatment for studies examining the nature and management of progressive aphasia and related disorders

-neuroimaging  and behavioral data collection and analysis

-generation of presentations and manuscripts from research findings

-basic lab management responsibilities

Requirements for the positions include: a graduate degree in speech-language pathology or a related field (PhD preferred, but Master’s-level will also be considered); English proficiency; a publication record that reflects experience with cognitive neuroscience, neurorehabilitation, neurogenic communication disorders, or related areas.

The positions may be used to fulfill requirements for the Clinical Fellowship in speech-language pathology.

Preferred start date is Summer, 2017, but alternative dates will be considered. If interested, please send a cover letter and CV with references to: Drs. Maya Henry and Maria Luisa Gorno-Tempini (aphasia.research.treatment@gmail.com)
