LAMBERT FAMILY TRANSLATIONAL POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP IN PEDIATRIC COMMUNICATION
The Roxelyn and Richard Pepper Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders in the School of Communication at Northwestern University is pleased to announce the availability of a postdoctoral fellowship in pediatric communication and related disorders of hearing, speech, language, and learning.
The Lambert Family Translational Fellowship is designed to train clinician-scientists who will become leaders in translational communication science and disorders and help reduce the critical time gap between discovery and implementation in practice.
