Lab Coordinator -- Infants with Hearing Loss

We are seeking a highly motivated and organized individual to help build a new research program to investigate language, cognitive, and social development in deaf and hard-of-hearing infants who receive cochlear implants and/or hearing aids. The new laboratory represents a joint effort between The Ohio State University and Nationwide Children’s Hospital to develop a multidisciplinary translational research program that will improve outcomes in children with hearing loss.

 

The laboratory is located at the OSU Eye and Ear Institute in Columbus, Ohio. The coordinator will work side-by-side with the director (Derek Houston, PhD) to build and grow the research program. The coordinator will also manage the day-to-day activities of a new multi-center NIH-funded project titled Infant-Directed Speech and Language Development in Infants with Hearing Loss (PIs Derek Houston and Laura Dilley). 

 

Educational requirements: Bachelor’s degree in speech and hearing sciences, psychology, or related field. 

 

Experience/skills requirements: Evidence of organizational and managerial skills is a top priority. Experience conducting research and working in a human development laboratory preferred.

 

Target/Hiring Salary: $40,915 to $48,915 per year (but may exceed this range with exceptional qualifications and experience)
