Research Postdoctoral fellowship at the ASD & Developmental Science Lab (PI: Kim), Center for Autism and the Developing Brain (CADB)
at Weill Cornell Medicine
We are seeking a 2-year research postdoctoral fellow beginning July, 2019 under the supervision of Dr. So Hyun “Sophy” Kim, to work on a NIMH funded project (1R01MH114925-01) examining the mechanisms of treatment for young children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) at the ASD & Developmental Science Lab (PI: Kim). The lab is housed at the Center for Autism and the Developing Brain (CADB) at Weill Cornell Medicine. The project aims to combine evidence for treatment effects of early intervention and mediation of changes in parent behaviors on changes in child behaviors across various evidence-based RCTs. The responsibilities of the fellow will include data collection and analyses process, preparations for manuscripts and grant applications, and training research assistants. The fellow will also be involved in other ongoing projects examining neural mechanisms of executive function and school readiness in children with ASD as well as testing the effectiveness of technology assisted parent coaching interventions.
Intervention Research Fellowship Focused on Adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorders at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center
Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) announces the availability of TWO 2-year Postdoctoral Fellowship positions focused on Intervention Research with Adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorders. CCHMC is one of the largest children’s hospitals in the country with a reputation for excellence and innovation in research, clinical care, teaching, and training. CCHMC was recently ranked second of pediatric hospitals by the US News & World Report, ranks third among pediatric medical centers in National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding, and hosts one of the nation's largest fellowship training programs in pediatric/child psychology.
These federally-funded research postdoctoral fellowships will provide advanced training in working with high functioning adolescents (middle school and high school students) with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). One fellow will primarily work on a study that involves developing, adapting, and testing an intervention to be implemented in the school setting targeting academic executive functions (e.g., organization, planning, and study skills). One fellow will primarily work on a study that involves testing an intervention targeting daily living skills (e.g., hygiene, cooking, and laundry) as compared to a social skills intervention. We envision that fellows will have a role on both studies. Fellows will be exposed to qualitative (i.e., focus group administration and coding) and quantitative (i.e., open trial and/or randomized clinical trial with intervention) methods. Fellows will also become research reliable on the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule or ADOS-2 with a certified ADOS-2 trainer. Other opportunities include (1) assisting with intervention development and adaptation; (2) training and consultation with school personnel who deliver the executive function intervention; (3) supervision of graduate trainees who assist in facilitating the daily living skills and social skills intervention in the clinic setting; and (4) training school personnel on the Behavior Management Principles course offered through The Kelly O’Leary Center for Autism (TKOC). Fellows’ 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 school and parent consultation and community outreach activities. For questions regarding these positions, contact Amie Duncan, Ph.D. (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Leanne Tamm, Ph.D. (email@example.com).

Brief Description of Duties:
The Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science and the Social Competence and Treatment Lab at Stony Brook University jointly seeks a Postdoctoral Associate to advance science communication research and refine scientists’ understanding and application of effective communication skills through training.
The Alda Method® is an immersive, team-taught, face-to-face approach to communication skills training that combines improvisational theater-based techniques with communication strategies. This unique approach to communication training is designed to foster clear and vivid communication that can be communicated to diverse audiences with integrity and accuracy. Participants learn to step out of their comfort zones to fully engage in the communication process as both a sender and receiver of messages. This multidisciplinary approach to communication training helps scientists tap into innate connections that come alive naturally when they recall a passion for their work.
The Postdoctoral Associate will contribute to research designed to evaluate the effectiveness of the Alda Method®. Such evaluation can involve both formative and summative assessment, as well as component evaluation based upon the interests and expertise of the incumbent. The successful candidate will support the Alda Center’s commitment to advance an evidence-based science communication curriculum.
This Postdoctoral Research Associate will be jointly appointed in Dr. Matthew Lerner’s Social Competence and Treatment Lab and the Alda Center. This role will permit the incumbent to integrate into both environments, capitalizing on the skills and resources available in each. Additionally, working in collaboration with Alda Center faculty and staff, the successful candidate will be responsible for conducting new research, analyzing data, and testing curriculum elements in the Alda Center’s on-the-road-workshops, presenting work at conferences, preparing publications, and collaborating on grant proposals. The incumbent will receive support to become Alda Certified Instructor and implement Alda Method® trainings in the U.S. and abroad. This unique training experience will enable the postdoc to conduct translational science communication research. The candidate may also teach up to three credits per semester depending on need and interest and may also help to train new Alda Certified Instructors. Conduct research on effective communication, including science communication, including conducting literature reviews, establishing and implementing study procedures, collecting and analyzing data.
