Position Description:

The Pediatric Audiology Laboratory at the University of Iowa, directed by Dr. Elizabeth Walker, PhD, is looking for a post-doctoral researcher effective immediately.  The lab studies how consistency of auditory-linguistic input to sound affects the development of children with hearing loss.  The long-term goal of our research is to inform and improve the evidence-based care that audiologists and speech-language pathologists provide to children with hearing loss. 

Our lab uses diverse measures to assess children’s abilities, including standardized tests of language and cognition, dynamic learning tasks, clinical audiologic measures, questionnaires, and dual-task paradigms.

Interested candidates should have obtained a PhD degree with a strong background in pediatric audiology, amplification, and aural (re) habilitation. Candidates should have demonstrated ability of independent research, good written and verbal communication skills, and documented publication record.

Desirable Qualifications:

  • Solid knowledge/experience in pediatric audiology or speech-language pathology with a focus on aural habilitation

  • Previous experience with conducting real-ear and simulated real-ear measures, visual reinforcement audiometry, conditioned play audiometry, conventional audiometry, and standardized speech, language, and cognitive testing

  • Extensive experience and interest in working with children who are deaf or hard of hearing is a must.
