The Postdoctoral Researcher will join a large, collaborative team studying the development and outcome of children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The content focus is on longitudinal data and prediction of clinical outcome, using measures of cognition, emotion, neuropsychological function, personality, clinical symptoms (psychiatric and psychological symptoms), family functioning, and psychophysiology (e.g., respiratory sinus arrhythmia). Opportunities may also be available to examine neuroimaging and genetic data.
Analytical methods applied in the study will include longitudinal structural equation modeling (e.g., growth curve models), growth mixture modeling, and machine learning prediction models (random forest, support vector machine, LASSO, others). The Postdoctoral Researcher on this project will learn to conduct some of these data analyses, write papers, and will have opportunities for first author publications. The Postdoctoral Researcher will have the opportunity for advanced training in developmental psychopathology, translational research conceptualization, statistics, machine learning, and information systems. Learning and training opportunities will be developed commensurate with the researcher's interests and skills. Opportunities for supervised clinical hours to obtain psychology licensure are not required but are available to interested applicants.
The position will provide one year of guaranteed funding, with a second year contingent on performance.
