Description: Upcoming Opportunities --- Autism Biomarkers Consortium for Clinical Trials
The Autism Biomarkers Consortium for Clinical Trials (ABC-CT) involves a network of leading scientists at five sites (Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard University in Boston MA; University of Washington/Seattle Children’s Research Institute in Seattle WA; Yale Child Study Center in New Haven CT; UCLA in Los Angeles CA; and Duke Center for Autism and Brain Development, Duke University, Durham, NC). The goal of this consortium is to generate a set of reliable behavioral and psychophysiological tools for use in clinical trials with children with ASD. Specifically, we will be working to integrate clinical, behavioral, EEG, and eye-tracking methods to create biomarkers for use in clinical trials. Across these sites, we plan to hire Research Coordinators, Clinicians, Postdoctoral and Research Scientists, and Research Assistants. We will seek individuals with experience in diagnostic and clinical assessment, behavioral testing, EEG and ET data collection, and data signal processing in developmental or clinical populations. Duties will vary based on open position so please inquire with the site principal investigator.
Anticipated Requirements:
Include: (1) Excellent interpersonal skills; (2) degree as appropriate for position (BA/BS for Research Assistants and Coordinators, MS or PhD for Postdoctoral or Research Scientists and Clinicians); (3) Experience working on research projects; (4) Interest and/or experience working clinically with children with autism spectrum disorders and their families.
