Description:

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Associate in clinical psychology. Candidates are expected to have completed an APA-accredited program with eligibility to obtain Connecticut psychology licensure. The Associate will join an interdisciplinary research team consisting of clinical and developmental psychologists, experts in neuroimaging, computer science, neurodevelopment, statistics, speech-language pathology, and social work as part of the Yale Autism Center of Excellence (ACE) Program Project Grant activities at the Yale Child Study Center (YCSC). The Yale ACE Research Program is a five-year study, funded by the National Institute of Mental Health and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, which aims to pinpoint early indicators of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) during prenatal and early postnatal development. The YCSC is a leading institution for clinical diagnostic services and multidisciplinary research on ASD involving behavioral neuroscience, physiology, neuroimaging, molecular genetics, and treatment.  

 


The Associate will undergo a 2-year clinical training program, working under the supervision of licensed psychologists including Drs. Powell, Fontenelle, and Chawarska. The Associate will be responsible for administering standardized assessment measures to infants, young children, school-age children, and their parents. The Associate will gain experience in eye-tracking, fetal and neonatal imaging, pediatric imaging, as well as in manuscript preparation and grant writing.  Additional training opportunities will include participation in a weekly seminar on issues related to diagnosis and treatment of ASD, weekly Departmental Grand Rounds, as well as other extensive didactic experiences available at the Yale Child Study Center, Yale Center for Clinical Investigation, Yale School of Medicine, and Yale University. Candidates with previous experience with young children with autism or other developmental disorders and a research track record are strongly encouraged to apply.
