LINKÖPING UNIVERSITY
hereby advertises a position as professor in Cognitive Hearing Science formally based at the Deparment of Behavioural Sciences and Learning

Appointment programme
The position of Professor in Cognitive Hearing Science will be held within the Disability Research division (DRD). Work within the division encompasses research and doctoral studies, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Disability Research. The division is also engaged in other programmes including those in Cognitive Science, Psychology, Special Needs Education, and an Audiology programme with a special focus on Cognitive Hearing Science that is currently being developed. Research within the division consists primarily of projects with a focus on Cognitive Hearing Science, a field that researchers in the division have had a major role in establishing internationally. Cognitive Hearing Science is an interdisciplinary field, where disciplines including psychology, linguistics, audiology, engineering, neuroscience and speech pathology are integrated to further scientific inquiry. Research concerns visual, auditory and tactile communication, in both signed and spoken language. Cognitive Hearing Science has been applied to many different participant groups with hearing impairment and is now also being applied to people with deaf-blindness and those with neuropsychiatric or developmental disorders. Other research in the division focuses on children and young people with mathematics deficits, and on planning and reading abilities in young people, with a special focus on those with intellectual disabilities.

DRD/IBL in Linköping is the administrative base of the Swedish Institute for Disability Research (SIDR). SIDR is a collaboration between Linköping University, Örebro University and Jönköping University. SIDR also incorporates the Linnaeus Centre HEAD (HEAD stands for Hearing and Deafness), a Swedish Research Council-funded Centre for Excellence. The current holder of the advertised position is both the director of SIDR and the director of HEAD. Depending on the new holder's profile, the management may be divided in another way.The position will primarily consist of further developing the division’s research and collaborations. Examples of such activities include applying for external funding, building research collaborations, contributing to doctoral education, and community outreach and collaboration. The position will also include contributing to undergraduate education and helping to develop the new Audiology programme. Applicants are required to demonstrate documented scientific skills regarding studies in Cognitive Hearing Science. It is also important that the applicant has a breadth of research experience that can enrich the research environment in other areas. Therefore, evidence of performing scientific studies of cognitive abilities or communicative skill in individuals with disabilities is of particular relevance. Additional, documented expertise in conducting experimental studies or multivariate correlation analysis is desirable. Applicants are required to demonstrate documented skills in teaching within Disability Research or related areas such as Psychology or Cognitive Science. Applicants must also demonstrate documented ability to supervise doctoral students in subjects of relevance to Cognitive Hearing Science and the planned Audiology programme, and to demonstrate the ability to continually develop SIDR’s research education. Applicants are required to demonstrate documented skills in university administration. A further requirement is to demonstrate documented leadership skills. Formal leadership training is desirable. The position will involve frequent contact with the university leaders, boards, different committees and broader society, so the applicant will need to demonstrate their ability to collaborate.

Applicants are required to demonstrate the ability to teach in English, and to fluently use English in both spoken and written communication.
