Researcher/Junior Faculty Position
Johns Hopkins
Division of Cognitive Neurology/Neuropsychology

New York City

The Division of Cognitive Neurology/Neuropsychology invites applications for a researcher for a junior faculty position (Research Associate) for its New York location. The individual in this position will lead research activities, and some educational efforts with a research component, focused on improving the skills of individuals in the moderate to severe range of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and other developmental disabilities.

The position will be physically based in midtown Manhattan at the Division’s New York Educational Program (NYEP). The NYEP provides full-time, educational services to a young adult with autism and development disabilities who has limited communication and social skills, and it offers some educational/social services to other individuals with developmental disabilities.  The one young adult, and potentially others, may participate in research efforts related to autism and related conditions.  These research efforts are the focus of this particular position.

The top priority for the individual in this position will be to assist the NYEP staff in refining and supervising current research/educational efforts, of which the main ones currently are:

  • using physiologic measures such as heart rate variability, electrodermal activity (EDA), and possibly salivary cortisol levels to predict receptivity to learning and to identify markers for behaviors that may interfere with learning
  • improving social interactions and other functions through individual and group activities (art, cooking, and music)
  • planning and supervising a series of single case studies (particularly whether or not music can benefit emotional regulation in such individuals).

As a secondary responsibility, the research associate will ensure the scientific integrity of scientific projects conducted at the Manhattan site, but supervised by faculty elsewhere.  Currently, those efforts involve reading training and visual evoked potential studies.  Ultimately, more research subjects may be  recruited from the area and tested at the Manhattan site. The position requires excellent managerial and interpersonal skills, clear written and oral communication skills, considerable flexibility and adaptability, and a broad understanding of – and hands-on experience with – individuals in the moderate to severe range of ASD or other developmental disabilities.

Qualifications:  Appropriate candidates must have a Ph.D. or equivalent in Experimental Psychology, Cognitive Science, Cognitive Neuroscience, or a comparable discipline. The position requires evidence of successfully directing human experimental behavioral research studies, preferably with experience with our target population (individuals in the moderate to severe range of ASD and related developmental disorders), proficiency with experimental statistics (particularly single-case, repeated-measures designs), and at least one first-authored, peer-reviewed publication.

Contact:  Send your CV and a letter of interest to neuro@jhmi.edu. References are not required at the initial application stage, but can be included.

The Johns Hopkins University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer committed to recruiting, supporting, and fostering a diverse community of outstanding faculty, staff, and students.  All applicants who share this goal are encouraged to apply.
