Multiple Clinical Research Positions - Cincinnati, OH

Center for ADHD Cincinnati OH
The Division of Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology at Cincinnati Children's Hospital anticipates hiring for multiple full-time clinical research positions. Individuals in these positions will primarily work on a new R01 research project funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH; pending). The study will use a prospective longitudinal design across early adolescence to examine sluggish cognitive tempo symptoms as a predictor of internalizing outcomes (depression, anxiety, suicidality). Using a developmental psychopathology framework, this study will incorporate physiological assessment and behavioral tasks in addition to information collected from adolescents, parents, and teachers.

Study Manager Position. We are looking for a full-time Master's level (or equivalent years with research coordination experience) study manager. The study manager will work with the investigators to execute the study, including oversight of research coordinators and undergraduate research assistants. The study manager will also help oversee data management and regulatory documentation and participate in recruitment efforts and completing study visits, including diagnostic assessments. The right person will demonstrate a high level of initiative and independence, flexibility, and have experience in research coordinator activities. Previous clinical training (e.g., Master’s in clinical, school, or counseling psychology) is highly desirable.

Clinical Research Coordinator Positions. We are looking for 2 full-time Bachelor’s level clinical research coordinators. The coordinators will work with the investigators and study manager on the day-to-day study activities, including recruitment and scheduling, conducting study visits (including IQ testing, and physiological assessment), scoring and summary report writing, and data management and entry.

For all positions, 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 manager and coordinators will also be exposed to and involved with other ongoing studies:
• Longitudinal study of children with and without sluggish cognitive tempo and impact on educational and socio-emotional functioning
• 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

U.S. News & World Report ranked Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center No. 3 in the nation in the 2020-2021 list of the best children's hospitals. These positions will be located within the Center for ADHD. Established in 2005, the Center for ADHD at Cincinnati Children’s is one of the largest centers in the country devoted entirely to improving the care of children and adolescents with ADHD and related conditions (http://www.cincinnatichildrens.org/service/c/adhd/default/).
