Assistant Professor - Deaf Education
Department: Communication Disorders & Deaf Education (CDDE)
Location: St. Louis, MO
The Communication Disorders and Deaf Education (CDDE) department at
Fontbonne University invites applications for a tenure track
faculty position at the Assistant Professor rank (depending on
qualifications) beginning in Fall 2022. CDDE is housed in the
College of Education and Allied Health Professions.
This is a full-time, 9-month contract with options to teach during
the summer semester. Primary responsibilities include teaching
undergraduate and graduate courses in the department, supervising
field experience for the deaf education programs, advising and
mentoring students, and participating in department and university
service activities. While applications from all areas of deaf
education are welcome, candidates with specialization in
family-centered practice and listening and spoken language (LSL)
development are encouraged to apply. Starting salary will be based
on qualifications and experience of the applicant with an excellent
benefits package available.
The mission of the department of communication disorders and deaf
education at Fontbonne University is to prepare knowledgeable,
competent and caring professionals in speech-language pathology and
deaf education. Through courses and practicum experience, knowledge
is developed, professional ethics and values are formed, and
opportunities are provided for guided practice to foster reflective
and caring therapists and teachers who will have a positive impact
on individuals, families and society.
The departmental mission statement corresponds closely with the
university mission statement, as both speech-language pathology and
deaf education disciplines are rooted in "personal concern."
Critical thinking, ethical behavior and assuming responsibility for
one's own behavior and the welfare of others are additional
qualities included in both the departmental mission and the
university mission. The goals of speech-language therapy and deaf
education are always to maximize inclusion of individuals served by
both professions, and this is accomplished via open communication
and collaborative practice.
