    The Division of Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology’s Center for ADHD at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital anticipates hiring for a full-time clinical research position to start January 2022. Individuals in this position will primarily work on two federally-funded projects (NIMH R01 and Institute of Education Sciences [IES], U.S. Department of Education; PI: Stephen Becker, PhD). Both studies using a developmental psychopathology framework and longitudinal design to examine longitudinal trajectories and outcomes associated with sluggish cognitive tempo (excessive daydreaming, mental confusion, slowed behavior/thinking). The IES-funded study focuses on examining sluggish cognitive tempo and academic and socio-emotional outcomes, and mechanisms prospectively linking SCT to poorer outcomes. The NIH-funded study is examining sluggish cognitive tempo symptoms as a predictor of internalizing outcomes (depression, anxiety, suicidality) in early adolescence, as well as moderators that inform which youth are at heightened risk for experiencing later internalizing psychopathology. Both studies include use a multi-method approach and incorporate physiological assessment and behavioral tasks in addition to information collected from adolescents, parents, and teachers.

    We are looking for a full-time Bachelor’s level clinical research coordinator to work across for these studies. The coordinator will work with the investigators, other coordinators, and postdoctoral fellow on the day-to-day study activities, including recruitment and scheduling, conducting study visits (including IQ and achievement testing, and physiological assessment), scoring and summary report writing, and data management and entry.

    A minimum of two-year commitment is required, with opportunity for additional years of employment.

      This position does require in-person work in Cincinnati.

    Applicants of diverse and underrepresented backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply.

    The study coordinator may also be exposed to and involved with other ongoing studies:
    • Longitudinal study examining the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on adolescents with and without ADHD
    • Studies evaluating executive function and homework/organization interventions in middle school students with autism spectrum disorder
    • Studies evaluating online software to improve the assessment and treatment of children with ADHD

    Other research and clinical opportunities:
    • Monthly didactic focused on ADHD-related research and clinical issues
    • Participate in the preparation of conference presentations
