The Department of Behavioral Sciences at Rush University Medical Center is seeking a full-time Executive Director (ED) for our NeuroBehavioral Center, located in Skokie, IL. The RNBC team provides outstanding care, supports educators, and conducts ground-breaking research in a multi-disciplinary setting. Our focus is on improving the lives of children and young adults with complex social, emotional, and academic challenges.
The goal that animates all of our work—in our clinic, education, and research programs—is to measurably improve children’s social, emotional, and academic outcomes. The ED will play a critical role in fulfilling that goal through strategic leadership of RNBC’s programs. RNBC is housed in the Department of Behavioral Sciences, and the ED serves key role in developing and advancing a strategic vision for RNBC’s in the department and across the institution.
The ED will provide overall leadership and management to ensure RNBC’s success in achieving its mission and programmatic and financial objectives. The ED will develop and guide RNBC's strategic vision, and will lead teams to achieve goals that advance that vision. The ED will provide overall direction for all functions, including clinic, education, research, administration, and fundraising.
The ED will represent RNBC to Rush, funders, collaborators, and the community.
The ED will support and benefit from a participatory governance model by which faculty- and staff-run committees provide advisory input on important decisions about RNBC. We are looking for a leader who is collaborative, who values the perspectives of professionals from multiple disciplines, and who sees leadership as an opportunity to help others succeed.
The right person for this position should have significant administrative and leadership experience and should have a disciplinary background either in child clinical psychology or a related discipline, research in a topic related to RNBC’s mission, or education. This position offers a competitive salary and benefits package and an academic rank commensurate with experience.
