Dear prospective postdoctoral fellow,

I am pleased to share with you the 2021 call for applications for the University of Missouri’s Preparing Future Faculty – Faculty Diversity (PFFFD) Postdoctoral Program. The PFFFD program is designed to develop scholars for tenure-track faculty positions. Applicants should demonstrate how they can contribute to faculty diversity, such as through membership in a group that is historically underrepresented or through other experience. Postdoctoral positions are typically for two years and provide research, teaching, and professional development opportunities.

We are seeking a scholar in speech, language and hearing sciences, in the areas of child language development and disorders, phonology, and/or voice. Applicants with CCC-SLP are preferred. The Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences has a strong research culture, with research mentorship occurring at all levels, from undergraduate to doctoral students and post-doctoral trainees. In addition, researchers have access to a range of centers and institutes, including the University’s Child Development Lab, Brain Imaging Center, and Thompson Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders.

Please see the call for applications for more details about the program and application process. General questions about the PFFFD program can be directed to Dr. Behm-Morawitz, Associate Dean of the Graduate School. If you have any questions about applying to our research area, specifically, I am happy to answer your questions.

Sincerely,
