Assistant Professor of Clinical Child Psychology

Yale University


The Autism Biomarkers Consortium for Clinical Trials (ABC-CT) seeks a highly qualified clinician for an Assistant Professor in the Clinical Track to participate in cutting-edge clinical research on autism spectrum disorder (ASD) at the Yale Child Study Center.

The ABC-CT is a network of leading scientists at five sites (Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard University, University of Washington/Seattle Children’s Research Institute, Duke University, University of California – Los Angeles, and Yale University). The goal of this consortium is to generate a set of reliable behavioral and psychophysiological tools for use in clinical trials with children with ASD. Specifically, we will be working to integrate diagnostic, behavioral, EEG, and eye tracking methods to create biomarkers that can be used to reduce the heterogeneity of autism and indicate efficacy of treatments.  Responsibilities will include conducting diagnostic and clinical assessments of children with ASD and providing oral and written clinical feedback to families participating in the ABC-CT as well as other research studies within the Yale Autism Program. Applicant should have experience in the clinical and diagnostic assessment of children with ASD and other developmental disabilities.

As part of the broader study, clinicians will be part of an interdisciplinary research team conducting a wide range of longitudinal assessments, including diagnostic, observational, eye-tracking, and EEG measures.
