Post-doctoral fellowships are available as part of the Research on the Challenges of Acquiring Language & Literacy (RCALL) Initiative at Georgia State University

RCALL is an innovative collaborative effort crossing colleges and departments. Our research is conducted by faculty and students from two colleges (Arts & Sciences and Education & Human Development) and ten departments including the departments of Educational Psychology, Special Education, & Communication Disorders, Psychology, Applied Linguistics, and Early Childhood Education.

We have a distinctive interdisciplinary postdoctoral training program focused on the acquisition of language and literacy in children and adults. Our research programs address not only basic conceptual and methodological issues in the area of language and literacy acquisition, but also the design and evaluation of interventions that may help individuals overcome challenges in the acquisition of language and literacy. Fellows will work with interdisciplinary teams on one or more funded research projects.

As part of the university’s Next Generation initiative, the two-year fellowship will provide trainees with intensive training in intervention research with special populations, analyses of existing databases using advanced statistical techniques, and in professional development, including grant writing and professional presentations and publication. We are seeking individuals who bring cutting edge skills (e.g., in adaptive technologies, virtual reality, neuroimaging, complex methods of analyses) to their own programs of research.

Competitive two year fellowships are currently available for Fall 2017. To apply, please submit your cv, research statement, examples of publications, and three letters of recommendation electronically to KeneƩ Stephens at kstephens@gsu.edu with the subject line "Language & Literacy Postdoctoral Fellow Search". We will begin reviewing applications January 31, 2017. For more information, view our webpage: www.researchlanglit.gsu.edu or contact Program Co-Directors: Drs. Amy Lederberg (alederberg@gsu.edu) or Rose A. Sevcik (rsevcik@gsu.edu).


  • An offer of employment will be conditional on background verification. Georgia State University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Institution. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.
