Our mission is to improve the treatment, teaching, and understanding of pediatric plastic surgery and cleft-craniofacial-maxillofacial conditions. Our clinical practice covers the spectrum of Pediatric Plastic Surgery care including craniofacial (craniosynostosis, plagiocephaly, orbits), clefts (cleft lip, nose, palate, alveolus), maxillofacial jaws (maxilla, mandible, overbite, underbite), hand (congenital and traumatic fractures, tendons, nerves), body and soft tissues (breast, lesions including vascular anomalies), and face (nose, ears, eyelids, tongue, lips).

To achieve this mission, our research focuses on clinical outcomes of children after surgery or other treatments. In addition, we have projects in 3D printing, tissue engineering, and other translational technologies in diagnosis, assessment, and treatment. We will be adding animal experiments and other protocols in the near future.

We are seeking a Research Coordinator with advanced training in scientific fields including medical sciences, statistical disciplines, and engineering. This team-member should have discipline and skills for daily and weekly consistent operations. Operations include: able to run projects, manage collaborators and students, update databases regularly, statistical analysis, writing abstracts and papers, applying for grants and IRBs and agreements, problem solving, independence and collaboration. There will also be opportunities to help create new processes and technologies. On-the-job training is provided for the above, provided that the team-member can manage day-to-day operations consistently and be a fast learner.
