FULL-TIME RESEARCH POSITIONS AVAILABLE FOR NEW GRADUATES in the BEHAVIORAL AND NEURODEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHIATRY & NEUROSCIENCE RESEARCH GROUP
The goal of our research group is to understand causes and advance novel, personalized treatment approaches for autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and related neurodevelopmental disorders. Our current laboratory and clinic-based research projects focus on human biomarker development as well as increasing successful outcomes through clinical research and treatment in children and adolescents with Fragile X Syndrome (FXS), idiopathic ASD, Angelman Syndrome (AS), and other neurogenetic syndromes. Projects with individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders include clinical measures of behavior and cognitive ability, neuroimaging studies of brain development using Electroencephalography (EEG), functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS), functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and medication treatment trials. In our translational neuroscience lab, we use human induced pluripotent stem cells, several mouse models of autism, FXS, and AS, and patient blood/saliva samples to better understand the pathophysiology of these disorders. Our projects also focus on integration of human and animal research in order to identify potential pharmacotherapy targets and biomarkers of treatment response.
We are currently hiring research coordinators for both our human clinical research projects and in our basic science labs. These positions are varied, but generally require a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience, biology, computer science, psychology, or related field, and are for a minimum of 2 years. Successful applicants are bright, motivated post-baccalaureate students with a passion for research, neuroscience and autism and related neurodevelopmental disorders.
