At least two years of experience supervising graduate student therapists preferred. Previous Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) training required. Previous research experience, including authorship on scientific journal articles preferred. The incumbent should have excellent interpersonal skills, be able to work independently and have the ability to prioritize.

Principal duties:

The Waisman Center is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge about human development, developmental disabilities, and neurodegenerative diseases throughout the lifespan. One of only 15 centers of its kind in the United States, the Waisman Center encompasses laboratories for biomedical and behavioral research, a brain imaging center, and a clinical bio- manufacturing facility for the production of pharmaceuticals for early stage human clinical trials. In addition to its research efforts, the Center provides an array of services to people with developmental disabilities, offers numerous educational and outreach programs to young children and their families, and trains scientists and clinicians who will serve our nation in the future.

The primary purpose of this position is to provide leadership for the clinical psychology services delivered at the Waisman Center's Clinical Translational Core (CTC). The CTC addresses the challenges facing scientists who conduct behavioral and bio-behavioral research on special populations (e.g., individuals with autism, FXS, DS, as well as children at developmental risk). Research on special populations is complicated by several factors that can challenge even the most seasoned investigators. There are often difficulties in conducting assessments to characterize such populations, including the need to validate a diagnosis or determine the presence of co-morbid conditions, such as autism in the case of individuals with FXS or DS. The populations of interest typically present with complex diagnostic profiles of asynchronous development across different behavioral and neurocognitive domains and may have limited response capabilities. Thus we often need to create assessment techniques appropriate for the construct of interest while adapting to the participant's limited response capabilities. The CTC psychologist will assist investigators in dealing with such problems.

The Psychologist is responsible for conducting, coordinating and leading behavioral assessments, diagnostic assessments, design of experiments, and psychological consultation through the CTC. The psychologist will also lead and participate in interdisciplinary assessments and intervention for children, adolescents, and adults with developmental disabilities (especially autism spectrum disorders), genetic disorders (e.g. fragile X syndrome and Down syndrome), and challenging behavioral issues through the Waisman Center Clinics. In addition to providing direct clinical services and clinical training and supervision to graduate and post-graduate students, the psychologist will participate in clinical and research initiatives.

Responsibilities will be organized into three areas: 1) Research, 2) Direct clinical services, 3) Supervision and Training.

1) Research (50%)
- Conduct interventions as part of clinical trials and other intervention research protocols.
- Perform testing for investigators who opt to use the services provided by the CTC Core to evaluate their research participants rather than to conduct the assessment using their own laboratory personnel.
- Provide and/or coordinate behavioral assessment services including behavioral evaluation, data preparation and analysis, and preparation of a brief report.
- Provide consultation to Waisman Center investigators regarding development of behavioral assessment research protocols.
- Provide research diagnostic assessments for Waisman Center behavioral laboratories.
- Collaborate in the design and implementation of grant proposals involving diagnostic and intervention services for individuals with developmental disabilities, with a focus on autism spectrum disorders. Facilitate the preparation of behavioral components of future grant applications by investigators planning to perform their studies using the RPC.
- Contribute to publications and presentations based on individual and collaborative research projects.

2) Direct Clinical Services (30%)
- Conduct developmental and cognitive assessments with children, adolescents, and adults with developmental disabilities using the following standardized instruments, among others: Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS), DSM-IV Symptom Checklist, Autism Diagnostic Interview- Revised (ADI-R), Mullen Scales of Early Learning, Stanford-Binet, DAS,
Wechsler scales, Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales II, Child Behavior Checklist. Research reliability on the ADOS and ADI-R is highly desired but not essential.
- Documentation and report writing related to all clinical and supervision activities including electronic medical records, interdisciplinary reports, and annual data collection.
- Contribute to activities relevant to clinical services including care coordination, triage of referrals, contacts with school program planners, behavioral therapists, mental health programs, family meetings, and IEP attendance.
- Design and implement intervention protocols to address behavioral issues, social skills, and other functional issues for children and or adults with developmental disabilities (as determined by funding, interest and expertise.).
- Provide consultation and technical assistance to families and community service providers based on the results of comprehensive evaluations.

3) Clinical training and student supervision (20%)
- Provide training to pre-doctoral and post-doctoral psychology trainees on the administration of cognitive and developmental assessments and interventions.
- Provide clinical supervision for psychologists in training working towards licensure in accordance with standards and requirements of the academic departments for psychology and psychology internships.
- Provide clinical supervision for psychology trainees in the clinics who are working on research projects, including LEND trainees from psychology and other disciplines.

A criminal background check will be conducted prior to hiring.
A period of evaluation will be required
