Job Description

Business: Boys Town National Research Hospital

Boys Town National Research Hospital (BTNRH) is seeking Junior, Mid, or Senior career level Research Scientists in the Center for Childhood Deafness, Language & Learning (CCDLL). The Center for Childhood Deafness, Language, and Learning is directed by Karla McGregor, Ph.D.

Our vision is to grow the CCDLL into a program with tightly integrated research and clinical arms that work synergistically on issues of language learning and development. Work that fits this focus could involve examination of differences between learners with varying diagnoses; determination of the influences of intervention as well as family, academic, and social environments on language outcomes; comparison of developmental processes that support language learning during infancy, childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood; and investigation of brain adaptability and neurologic pathways that support language learning and development. We are assembling a faculty that can offer a unique perspective on such issues, one that is informed by a commitment to understanding and ameliorating the effects of childhood disabilities on language learning and development.

  • Scientists at Boys Town National Research Hospital are full-time researchers with no teaching or administrative responsibilities and reasonable service commitments. Senior scientists aim for 50% salary support on external grants. Via participation in the Center for Perception and Communication in Children (CPCC) funded by a Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) grant, junior scientists are provided with extensive mentoring and three years of full support to enable them to reach this goal.
  • All scientists will have access to new, state-of-the art laboratory facilities, generous start-up funds, and extensive supports for grant management, IT, participant recruitment, and clinical measurement.

Scientists at Boys Town National Research Hospital have the advantage of working alongside an outstanding, internationally recognized group of colleagues. In addition to clinicians and scientists in the CCDLL, collaborations are possible with faculty in the Centers for Neurobehavioral Research, Sensory Neuroscience Research, Audiological and Vestibular Services, and Hearing Research. Our intellectual community also includes colleagues at the University of Nebraska-Omaha, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the University of Nebraska Medical Center, Creighton University and the Creighton University School of Medicine. Our participation in the Great Plains IDeA-Clinical & Translational Research Center provides training opportunities, partnerships, and resources for scientists who wish to translate science into better health outcomes.

Required Qualifications: A successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in Speech-Language Pathology, Cognitive Science, Developmental Psychology or a related field and a record that demonstrates a highly productive and excellent translational research program. Expertise in pediatric clinical populations and treatment research is of particular interest, but not required.

Please submit CV and a statement of research interests as one attachment.

About Boys Town

What would happen if you could ?improve circumstances for those who are suffering from abuse, addiction, abandonment or violence, so they could reach their potential?

That is the question Boys Town has spent a century answering. It is what inspired and drove our founder, Father Edward J. Flanagan, and it continues to motivate our mission to this day.

Boys Town believes today, as our founder did 100 years ago, that every child deserves a future, every family deserves to stay together and every community deserves to thrive. And we believe that all of these things should be achievable without regard to race, religion or background.

So, for the young man dodging gunfire on the streets just to get to school, the family torn apart by substance abuse, and the community crumbling from neglect and social disorder, Boys Town offers hope. But we offer hope as more than just an abstract concept; we substantiate it with programs and solutions grounded in our deep experience and supported by our decades of research.

Though we have grown to become a national organization that reaches communities from coast to coast, and our scope has expanded to include in-home family counseling, health care and programs to rebuild at-risk schools, Boys Town remains forever driven by our founder’s singular vision. And with your help, we will do so well into our second century and beyond.
