Business: Boys Town National Research Hospital
Boys Town National Research Hospital (BTNRH) is seeking Junior career level Research Scientists in the Center for Sensory Neuroscience. The Center for sensory Neuroscience is directed by Dominic Cosgrove, Ph.D.
Research Scientists at Boys Town National Research Hospital are full-time researchers with no teaching or administrative responsibilities and reasonable service commitments.
Our vision is to grow the Center from the ground up with a group of highly collaborative scientists with research focused on translational auditory neuroscience. Our philosophy is focused on mentoring with senior level scientists. Towards this end, we have close ties with the translational hearing center (THC) at Creighton University which is anchored by COBRE funding for the creation of a center of excellence in translational auditory neuroscience. COBRE programs focus on funding new independent investigator's research programs with significant mentoring and oversight. Success of the program is defined by the success of the young investigators involved. The overarching goal is to develop a perpetually self-funded world class center of excellence in sensory neuroscience. All scientists will have access to new, state-of-the art laboratory facilities, extensive supports for grant management, and IT. This position is fully funded by the Ryan foundation.
Scientists at Boys Town National Research Hospital have the advantage of working alongside an outstanding, internationally recognized group of colleagues. In addition to the faculty at the Center for Sensory Neuroscience and the Creighton THC, collaborations are possible with faculty in the Centers for Human Neurosciences, Neurobehavioral 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, and the University of Nebraska Medical Center. 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. as well as post-doctoral studies or faculty-level experience in neuroscience and a record that demonstrates a highly productive and excellent research program. Expertise in an area with translational potential is preferred, but not required.
