Postdoctoral Fellowship, Cincinnati Children's Hospital

Down Syndrome Research Post-doctoral opportunity - Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center

Dr. Anna Esbensen and the Division of Developmental Disabilities and Behavioral Pediatrics has an opening for a Postdoctoral Fellowship position focused on measurement research with children and adolescents with Down Syndrome (DS). This federally-funded research fellowship will provide advanced training in working with individuals with developmental disabilities, and specifically on research on DS. The fellow will be involved in several studies, including measuring cognitive or language outcomes in preschool to school-age children with Down syndrome and a study developing a novel behavioral outcome measure for use with individuals with DS. Fellows will be exposed to qualitative (i.e., focus group administration and coding) and quantitative (i.e., scale development, measurement evaluation) methods. Additional opportunities are available to be involved in randomized clinical trial interventions, with exposure to quantitative analysis methods. Other opportunities include participating in the Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND) program and in national clinical trial networks. Access to multiple datasets will contribute to publication and presentation opportunities, and fellows will have protected time for their own research interests, including grant writing. There may also be the opportunity to provide community outreach activities.

Requirements: PhD, MD or equivalent degree in a field related to developmental disabilities.

Please submit your application to Dr. Esbensen with the following information: cover letter, CV and contact details for 3 referees.
