Routine clinical data collected during the provision of multiple family and school services as well as research data from NIH- and IES-funded grants are available for analysis with guidance from Dr. W. Alex Mason, Director of the TRC, and other staff members.

    • Knowledge of research design, statistics (e.g., SEM, multilevel modeling), and relevant computer software (e.g., SPSS, SAS, STATA, Mplus).

    • Available to complete an initial appointment of two years, renewable for a third year contingent on annual performance reviews and availability of funding.

      About the Translational Research Center (TRC):

      The TRC (formerly the National Research Institute for Child and Family Studies) is a highly unique research center embedded within Boys Town, a national service organization, that provides uncommon opportunities for involvement in applied research that directly impacts and improves services. The TRC conducts research on child development and family functioning, tests the efficacy/effectiveness of interventions, and translates findings into practice both within and outside of Boys Town. The TRC also has close ties with the Boys Town National Research Hospital (e.g., the Neurobehavioral Research Center) as well as with local and regional universities, which provides multiple collaboration opportunities.
