The Translational Neuroscience Center (TNC) at Boston Children's Hospital is dedicated to furthering our understanding of brain and cognitive development in children diagnosed with or at risk for various neurodevelopmental disorders. Our multidisciplinary team of researchers and clinicians brings together experts from a wide range of fields, including neuroscience, signal processing, psychology, computer science, child neurology and developmental pediatrics. Through this collaborative approach, we aim to drive the science forward as rapidly as possible and translate what we learn into earlier identification, improved therapies, and better outcomes for children and families affected by neurodevelopmental disorders. Boston Children's Hospital is ranked as the top Children's Hospital in the United States and is committed research and to building a diverse workforce. Applications from women, racial and ethnic minorities are strongly encouraged.
