Postdoctoral Fellowships, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center

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.
