The University of Southern California is an equal opportunity employer

The USC Voice Center is offering a one-year paid advanced fellowship to meet the needs of certified speech-language pathologists with an interest in voice who wish to advance their knowledge and skill in the treatment of voice and upper airway disorders through participation in an inter-professional practice model. The USC Voice Center is staffed by specialists in Laryngology, Speech-Language Pathology and the singing voice who are recognized for their expertise and mentorship in disorders of voice and upper airway. The Fellow will work closely with the faculty in interdisciplinary voice and upper airway clinics, gaining the experience needed to become a skilled, independent practitioner under the mentorship of the USC Voice Center faculty. The candidate will be a member of the cutting edge Otolaryngology department at USC and have the benefits of academic and research endeavors with Otolaryngology residents, fellows, audiologists, and other faculty.

This advanced fellowship year offers experience and training in both diagnostic and therapeutic care of voice, professional voice, and upper airway disorders. The Fellow will receive training in instrumental assessment, including advanced flexible and rigid endoscopic laryngeal imaging, FEES and instrumental voice assessment.  Care of the patient with laryngeal dystonia in inter-professional medical procedure clinics will provide the fellow with experience not often garnered in clinical experience. Clinical research opportunities are a hallmark of the fellowship given the resources offered through Keck Medicine of USC.

The candidate must present a strong academic background. Prior experience in voice is preferred, as is academic or performance experience in singing or acting.

Dates of the fellowship: August 1, 2018-July 31, 2019 (fellowship runs one year from start date)

Interested applicant should send the following information

1.       Letter of intent describing interest in the USC Voice Center Fellowship

2.       Curriculum vitae documenting prior employment in speech-language pathology, academic training, externships, research, presentations, and any vocal performance.

3.       2 letters of recommendation. One letter must be from someone who directly supervised the candidate’s clinical experience.
