The Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute (MRRI) invites inquiries, applications and nominations for the position of Director. MRRI is an internationally recognized research institute dedicated to three focus areas: Cognitive neuroscience and cognitive rehabilitation, traumatic brain injury treatments and outcomes, and movement sciences and mobility rehabilitation. MRRI shares the health campus with MossRehab and Einstein Medical Center at Elkins Park, PA. MRRI and MossRehab are part of the larger Einstein Healthcare Network. This is an outstanding leadership opportunity to substantially build upon a world-class, highly collaborative research institute devoted to improving the lives of individuals with neurological disabilities, as well as the opportunity to impact neurorehabilitation science.
After stable and productive leadership under the two co-founders, MRRI now seeks a dynamic leader with a national research reputation to guide MRRI’s growth and development as a regional, national and international leader in cognitive neuroscience and rehabilitation research. The next Director will partner with the Associate Director, the MRRI Advisory Board, current institute scientists and MossRehab leadership and will ideally continue to enhance clinical integration through multidisciplinary collaborations. Important goals for the new Director will be to raise the national and international profile, build and enhance local university partnerships and stengthen and diversify funding opportunities.
Candidates must possess a M.D., M.D./Ph.D. or Ph.D. or equivalent degree with a deep appreciation of research and a broad knowledge of cognitive neuroscience, neurorehabilitation or a closely related field. The successful candidate must also demonstrate recognized productivity and achievement in research, and the ability to work collaboratively with colleagues. As the administrative leader for the Institute, candidates should have a strong business sense and an understanding of what it takes to help enhance research funding in a competitive environment. Exceptional communication skills, financial acumen and the potential to fundraise are essential, as is a clear vision for advancing the research mission in the midst of a changing funding landscape.
Applications should include a curriculum vitae and cover letter and be sent via email to MRRIDirector@Wittkieffer.com. Inquiries may be addressed to Joyce DeLeo, Ph.D. at 630-575-6177 or Elizabeth Frye, M.D. at 630-575-6949, the Witt/Kieffer consultants supporting this search.
