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.
