Academic / Research
Applications are invited for two postdoctoral fellowship positions under the direction of Dr. Rebecca Landa at Kennedy Krieger Institute's Center for Autism and Related Disorders. Dr. Landa is PI of multiple federal grants (NIMH, NIDCD, IES, CDC). Studies include prospective, longitudinal research focused on younger siblings of children with ASD, psychometric assessment of an innovative social communication screener in community settings, infant pre-emptive intervention via a randomized controlled trial, and a multi-state efficacy trial (RCT) focused on preschoolers with ASD and their teachers in public school settings.
Fellows will work closely with the PI, other research staff and faculty, statisticians and methodologists, clinicians from numerous disciplines, and early childhood educators in the execution and analysis phases of research. Responsibilities will depend on the fellow's interests and experience. Some examples of responsibilities include conducting research assessments of children with developmental disabilities and neurotypical development, coaching teachers or child care providers in authentic community settings, and coaching parents of infants. Fellows will be involved in recruitment, data collection, data analysis, authorship on manuscripts and presentations, and engagement with community partners. Fellows will receive broader training tailored to their interests and career goals. Support for conference travel will be provided.
Strong applicants will have experience in one or more of the following areas: assessment of children with ASD, intervention delivery, delivering professional development in community-based settings, implementation science. Excellent interpersonal and communication skills are required. Appointments will be made for one year, with a second year re-appointment expected based on review of the fellow’s progress. The fellowship may begin on, or at any time before, July 1, 2018. The current stipend for first year fellows is commensurate with the standard National Institutes of Health rate and is eligible for benefits.
