POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW

Job Description

Strength Through Diversity

Ground breaking science. Advancing medicine. Healing made personal.

 
Roles & Responsibilities:
  • Dr. Jennifer Foss-Feig at the Seaver Autism Center for Research and Treatment is seeking one full-time
    Postdoctoral Fellow to join the team at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. The
    fellow will have the opportunity to be a key contributor in an exciting new research project developing a novel
    outcome measure for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) as well as to complete hours for clinical
    psychology licensure. Publications, conference presentations, design of original studies, and mentoring of
    students will be key components of the postdoctoral fellowship.
    As part of this position, the fellow will be expected to actively participate in diagnostic assessments for research
    participants; therefore, experience with – and ideally research reliability in – all modules of the ADOS and the
    ADI-R are preferred. Strong candidates will have substantial background in the measurement of ASD
    symptoms and familiarity with observer-report measures; experience with measure development and/or strong
    psychometric training are a plus, but not required. Excellent written and oral communication skills and ability to
    collaborate with interdisciplinary and cross-institutional teams are a must.
    Additional opportunities include work on projects using EEG, eye tracking, psychophysics, and/or fMRI, in
    both children and adults with ASD, as well as in individuals with rare genetic syndromes associated with ASD
    (e.g., Phelan McDermid syndrome, FOXP1 syndrome, ADNP syndrome, DDX3X syndrome). Experience in
    one or more of these experimental methodologies is a plus. Opportunities for submission of external funding
    applications at the trainee level (e.g., to NIH, Autism Speaks, Autism Science Foundation) will be available.
    Applicants completing a doctoral degree in clinical psychology or related disciplines and having expertise in
    assessment of neurodevelopmental disorders will be considered for a fully-funded position. While this
    fellowship has a primary emphasis on research, supervised clinical hours for licensure will be attained.
    Additional clinical experiences (e.g., treatment cases, neuropsychological testing) are possible for interested
    candidates.
    The start date is Summer 2020, with some flexibility. This is a two-year position, with possibility of extension.
