Clinical Research Assistant position open at UC Davis TCAN Lab

The Translational Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience laboratory (PI: Dr. Cameron Carter), is recruiting for a Junior Specialist (research assistant) position at the UC Davis Medical Center.  Positions have a one year appointment with an additional year based on performance, and we strongly consider applicants who are able to consider a two year commitment.  Deadline for application review is November 8th, 2018.


Duration of Untreated Psychosis Specialist



This position is to serve as a junior specialist for the Duration of Untreated Psychosis study at the
UC Davis Medical Center. This study tests the effectiveness of using electronic screening and
telemedicine approaches to rapidly identify and treat individuals who present with psychosis to a
variety of community sites (e.g., schools, emergency rooms, behavioral health clinics). The
incumbent will be trained in diagnostic interviews, learn consenting procedures, manage IRB
protocols, and work with community partners. The current study entered a new piloting
phase that started Summer 2018, which will allow the incumbent to meaningfully contribute to Phase 2 study design and revisions. Depending on their contribution and role in the lab, the incumbent may have the opportunity assist in study design and analysis as well as writing and review of relevant manuscripts.

Research Fellowship Opportunities in Social Developmental Neuroscience for Seniors and Recent Graduates

The Marcus Autism Center, in conjunction with the Emory University School of Medicine and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, is offering four fellowships: the Cohen Fellowship in Developmental Social Neuroscience, the Marcus Fellowship in Speech Science and Engineering, the Simons Fellowship in Computational Neuroscience, and the Education Sciences Fellowship. Students who will receive a bachelor’s degree by June 2019 will be eligible for the positions. The fellowships will commence in July 2019, and they are 2 years in duration. Students can find further details at: cohenfellowship.org and simonsfellowship.org.

The Cohen Fellowship in Developmental Social Neuroscience will involve cutting-edge social neuroscience research in infants, toddlers and adolescents. Fellows will work to further the understanding of autism through eye-tracking research, guiding a project from the point of data collection to publication of results.

The Simons Fellowship in Computational Neuroscience will involve integrating computational strategies with clinical research goals. Fellows will develop methods for the analysis of visual scanning and eye-tracking data, computational models of visual salience, and data visualization techniques, all with the aim of advancing the understanding of autism and efforts at early diagnosis.

The Marcus Fellowship in Speech Science and Engineering will involve researching early vocal development, including speech production and speech perception, as part of a program to map out both typical and atypical development of spoken communication in early childhood.

The Education Sciences Fellowship will involve research in educational innovations in autism, from early child care through high school. Fellows will learn about classroom-based interventions to increase social emotional engagement and inclusion, gaining experiences with observational research methods, cutting-edge intervention research, and implementation science approaches.
