The successful candidate will also assist with grant preparation and IRB protocols. Prior experience in speech-language therapy with people with aphasia and/or neuroimaging research is strongly preferred. Programming experience and computational skills with eprime, Matlab or R are desired. The successful applicant should be highly motivated, organized, personable, willing to learn, responsible, reliable, and efficient. The successful candidate will also work collaboratively with undergraduate and doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows and other faculty members of the Johns Hopkins community.

Minimum qualifications (mandatory):

The ideal candidate should have an MA degree in speech-language pathology. Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC-SLP) is desirable but not required.
