Job Description
The School of Education at Boston University invites applications for the
position of a full-time, tenure-track, Assistant Professor of Language and
Literacy, with an emphasis in Deaf Studies and Deaf Education. The
successful candidate will have an active research program with demonstrated
potential to secure external grant funding to support their research.
While the specific focus of research is open, the candidate should have
expertise in an area related to language acquisition, literacy, or
cognitive development of Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing (D/HH) children.  The
candidate should also have a background in the bilingual (ASL/English)
philosophy as it applies to the education of D/HH students.

The position will be housed in the Language and Literacy Education cluster
in the School of Education.  As a tenure track faculty member, the
candidate is expected to participate in program and cluster meetings,
conduct research, seek and implement external funding support, and engage
in creative activity, write and present professionally, and provide service
within and outside the School of Education.

This position begins July 1, 2017.  Salary is competitive and commensurate
with experience. Applicants from diverse backgrounds are strongly
encouraged to apply.

The candidate must hold an earned doctorate in Education, Human
Development, Applied Linguistics, or a related field.  Preference will be
given to candidates who have at least three years of classroom experience
teaching D/HH students.  Responsibilities include teaching undergraduate
and graduate courses in language and literacy, cognitive development,
ASL/English bilingual education, and social development of D/HH children.
In addition, the faculty member will be responsible for advising master’s
and doctoral-level students and providing service to the university and the
profession, including building positive relationships with local schools
and other departments at Boston University.
