Resources for research

As a new audiology faculty member, you will have access to your own laboratory space with a 10x10ft2 double-walled sound-treated room and generous start-up funding to launch your research program at the UofM. In addition, you will have access to shared research equipment and facilities such as a brand-new KEMAR manikin equipped for binaural recording, and a 24ft3 anechoic chamber fully equipped to deliver acoustic stimuli to a 32-loudspeaker array.

Faculty offices, research and collaboration spaces, the Baptist Memorial Health Sciences Library, and the Memphis Speech and Hearing Center (MSHC) all are located within the Community Health Building (CHB). Built in 2015, this innovative space, equipped with state-of-the-art technologies, was designed to encourage a healthy level of activity, social interaction, and environmental stewardship. The MSHC serves individuals in the community, and also serves as a clinical laboratory for students and a source of participants interested in participating in clinical research.

Also located in the CHB are in-house dedicated IT and computer support staff, research support staff, a pre-award grants coordinator, business officer, and resources funded from the Center for Research Initiatives for the Communicatively Impaired (CRISCI). School and campus funding opportunities are available, as well as highly qualified PhD and AuD students, many of whom are employed as laboratory research assistants to support faculty research efforts.

The UofM recently obtained Carnegie 1 status and departmental research efforts are also supported by the Office of Sponsored Programs, Division of Research and Innovation, and the University’s Institutional Review Board.
