Post-Doctoral Fellow

The Mulle Laboratory at CABM is seeking an outstanding Post-Doctoral Fellow to join an exciting, fast-paced project studying rare genetic variants associated with neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders. The Post-Doctoral Fellow will report to the Principal Investigator, Dr. Jennifer Mulle, and conduct research to understand the phenotypic spectrum of a rare genetic syndrome associated with autism, cognitive disability, and other phenotypes. This will be accomplished with the use of gold-standard instruments that will be administered remotely (via zoom). Training will be provided (experience is a plus). The Post-Doctoral Fellow will be expected to perform and document informed consent of our study subjects, perform evaluations to measure cognitive performance, social disability, executive function deficits, and early features of psychosis/schizophrenia. The Post-Doctoral Fellow will score instruments according to manufacturers’ instructions and enter scores and raw data into a central database. In addition, the Post-Doctoral Fellow will write up results of the evaluations and return these to the study subjects. The Post-Doctoral Fellow will be expected to analyze data, write manuscripts, and present findings at regional and national conferences. The Post-Doctoral Fellow will be expected to maintain effective communication and active discussion related to the involved research with the Principal Investigator and other members of the research team. Research must be conducted in accordance with Good Research Practices guidelines as well as other institutional and sponsor regulations and guidelines. The ability to manage sensitive and confidential data is required. The candidate is expected to be proficient in spoken and written English. This is a grant-funded position contingent on the continued availability of funds to support it.
