Full-Time Clinical Research Position
The Division of Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital anticipates hiring for a full-time clinical research position to start immediately. The individual in this position will primarily work on a federally-funded project (NICHD R01; PI: Megan Narad, PhD). The project incorporates dogs and handlers from the volunteer dog program at CCHMC into physical therapy and occupational therapy sessions for patients with ABI being treated on the inpatient rehabilitation unit. This study focuses on understanding the effectiveness of animal assisted therapy (AAT) to promote recovery after pediatric acquired brain injury and understanding mediators and moderators of treatment response. The study includes a multi-method approach incorporating physiological assessment, affect recognition software, and behavioral coding in addition to information collected from patients and therapists.
We are looking for a full-time Bachelor’s level clinical research coordinator for this study. The coordinator will work with the investigators and care teams on the inpatient rehabilitation unit to complete the day-to-day study activities, including recruitment and scheduling, coordination of schedules with therapists and dog/handler teams, conducting data collection visits on the inpatient unit, and data management and entry.
A minimum of two-year commitment is required, with opportunity for additional years of employment. Applicants of diverse and underrepresented backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply.
The study coordinators may also be exposed to and involved with other ongoing projects including, but not limited to, qualitive study of the impact of the integration of AAT into inpatient rehabilitation therapies as well as understanding short and long term outcomes of pediatric TBI.
Other research and clinical opportunities:
• Monthly didactic focused on ADHD-related research and clinical issues
• Participate in the preparation of conference presentations
