Research Faculty Position, Northwestern University: Assistant Director, Program on Developmental Mechanisms of Psychopathology, Department of Medical Social Sciences

 
Developmental Sciences Research Faculty Position
Assistant Director, Program on Developmental Mechanisms of Psychopathology
Department of Medical Social Sciences, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University
 
The Department of Medical Social Sciences (MSS), Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University invites applications for a junior faculty to assume the role of Assistant Director of the Developmental Mechanisms of Psychopathology Program, directed by Lauren Wakschlag, PhD.  MSS is the academic home for more than 50 interdisciplinary faculty including health, community, measurement, developmental, social, neuroscientific and clinical psychologists, prevention scientists, medical sociologists and anthropologists, and physician-scientists (www.mss.northwestern.edu).
 
We are seeking an energetic and highly collaborative developmental scientist with scientific training and expertise in developmentally-sensitive measurement, early childhood disruptive behavior and/or pre-postnatal mechanisms of developmental psychopathology.  The candidate should have scientific and management training/experience in longitudinal developmental research and program development. The Assistant Director will work closely with Dr. Wakschlag in leading and overseeing program activities and operations.
 
The MSS Developmental Mechanisms Program is a translational research program at the interface of developmental and clinical science, with central emphasis on emergent disruptive behavior pathways. Housing multiple NIH-funded studies, the program is nationally recognized for generating novel paradigms to measure early childhood disruptive behavior and elucidating prenatal and its neurodevelopmental mechanisms.  We have created innovative observational and survey tools (e.g., DB-DOS and MAP-DB), uniquely designed to differentiate normative variation from emergent clinical problems in the first five years of life. The program’s mechanistic focus investigates how the early environment (including adverse prenatal exposures, stressful life events, parental psychopathology, and parenting) contributes to early neurodevelopmental abnormalities, using cutting-edge developmentally-sensitive methods in neuroimaging, cognitive neuroscience, and behavioral assessment. Early career scientist, Amelie Petitclerc, PhD, leads initiatives designed to expand the reach of the Developmental Mechanisms Program to policy-relevant early life prevention Current studies include a newly funded randomized trial to test the impact of prenatal stress reduction on neurodevelopment; a multi-method, multi-assessment longitudinal study of irritability in toddlers; an ongoing longitudinal study of mental health in an ethnically diverse pediatric sample oversampled for disruptive behavior and family violence. The program emphasizes team science, and engages a broad spectrum of collaborators from diverse disciplines (e.g., neuroscience, communication science, pediatrics, epidemiology and prevention science), with more than a dozen affiliated faculty from across Northwestern, as well as ongoing national and international collaborations. The candidate will play a key role in advancing supplementary studies and their linkage to ongoing work of the program to MSS-based national developmental initiatives, such as the ECHO PRO Measurement Core. 
 
The Assistant Director will have primary oversight responsibilities for three program areas: (1) Study Operations i.e., overseeing multiple funded study teams, and budgetary and regulatory oversight; (2) Team Science Activities, including collaborating on and orchestrating manuscripts and grant preparation, and facilitating supplementary studies with a broad interdisciplinary collaborative net. The candidate will also participate in program educational activities (e.g., mentoring graduate students and postdocs); and (3) Program Procedures, Workflow & Dissemination, including developing system-wide procedures that improve efficiency and integration across studies and facilitate public access, enhance program visibility and dissemination of its measurement tools. 
 
The Assistant Director will have rich opportunities to participate in scientific activities of the program including manuscript and grant development and submission. The Developmental Mechanisms Program is also a hub for the Northwestern Institute for Innovations in Developmental Sciences (DevSci), directed by Dr. Wakschlag, which is catalyst and platform for interdisciplinary scientific exchange and training in the Developmental Sciences across the University.  It is anticipated that the candidate will be an active member of this broader developmental science community.
 
The ideal candidate will have a doctoral degree in developmental psychology or psychopathology, or a related field, and training/experience in interdisciplinary team science, research program development and management. Expertise in multi-modal early childhood assessment, developmental science, and early influences on mental health is optimal, and competence in statistical techniques for developmental science, and experience with NIH grant writing are also strong pluses. A record of scholarly publication and a history of engagement in the conduct of developmental science research are desirable.  S/he will have strong organizational, problem-solving, writing and communication skills, and capability to address day-to-day tasks, take initiative and effectively balance competing priorities independently. We seek a candidate who brings a strong skillset in program management including building staff relationships that are both positive and accountable, and generating timelines for deliverables and their metrics for success.  Candidates who have an entrepreneurial spirit, can think on their feet, work flexibly and nimbly, are creative and energetic, and revel in collaboration will be an excellent fit.  
Salary and rank will be commensurate with experience and credentials. This is a full time continuing position. Start date asap.  Please send a statement of interest, curriculum vitae, representative reprints and three references to Laurie Wakschlag (lauriew@northwestern.edu).
 
Northwestern University is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action Employer of all protected classes, including veterans and individuals with disabilities. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.  Hiring is contingent upon eligibility to work in the United States.

Associate director position, Northwestern University (posted 1/28/17)

 
Associate Director:  Northwestern University Institute for Innovations in Developmental Sciences
 
We are seeking an Associate Director for the Northwestern University Institute for Innovations in Developmental Sciences (DevSci). This newly-formed University-wide Institute builds on a vibrant established DevSci community that connects scholars and students from numerous disciplines from across the University. In particular, the mission of the DevSci Institute is to motivate and lead transformative research to engender a “healthier, earlier” population-beginning even before birth-and continuing throughout the lifespan. The Institute catalyzes developmental sciences research and training innovation at the intersection of biomedical and social sciences, promoting discovery of early life, modifiable mechanisms, and their rapid translation to real world applications to improve children’s long-term health and wellbeing across diverse contexts. 
 
The Associate Director is a research scientist faculty position. It is based in the Department of Medical Social Sciences and reports to the Institute Director, Laurie Wakschlag, PhD. We are seeking an energetic and highly collaborative developmental scientist to help shape and guide the Institute during this formative phase of its development. In so doing, the Associate Director will play a prominent role in advancing the Institute’s broader objective of Northwestern as a center of excellence and international leader in transdisciplinary developmental sciences. S/he will work closely with other Institute faculty leaders across a range of developmental science disciplines including pediatrics, psychology, neuroscience, economics, epidemiology, and prevention science.
 
The Associate Director will have primary day-to-day responsibility for Institute operations, strategic implementation, and communications. Operationally, s/he will work closely with the director and leadership to ensure smooth and effective functioning of the Institute. Responsibilities will include oversight of the Institute’s administrative core including fiscal and organizational oversight, staff supervision, serving as liaison to University offices, and creating and obtaining resources to ensure success and growth and sustainability of the Institute.   Strategically, the Associate Director will collaborate with leadership of the Institute’s scientific and training centers to provide a thriving collaborative platform, expand the University’s developmental sciences research portfolio and its leadership in large scale federal initiatives, and supporting a wide range of training opportunities.  An important aspect of this role will be facilitating cross-center communication and integration, and nurturing strong ongoing alliances with supporting partners throughout the University. The Associate Director’s public facing communications role will center on promoting the Institute, its knowledge generation and activities. This will be achieved via innovative dissemination modalities across the University, to national and international scholars, the public at large, service providers, educators and national constituencies determining resource allocation for developmental programs and research. 
 
The optimal candidate will have a doctoral degree in developmental psychology or a related developmental science field, with emphasis on early childhood research, and expertise in developmental methodology.   Individuals from a range of developmental science disciplines are welcome, and capacity to work across social and biomedical sciences is essential. Applicants at all levels are encouraged to apply, but demonstrated leadership and/or experience in program development and administration will be an important consideration.  This may include program development and administration roles both within and outside of academic contexts.  Within the University setting, experience within University research centers, knowledge of extramural funding mechanisms, and experience in University- level interactions are valued.  Strong organizational, problem-solving, written and verbal communication skills, and capability to manage day-to-day tasks and competing priorities independently are requisite.  A strong collaborative orientation is also essential to this role.
Salary and rank will be commensurate with experience and credentials. This is a full time continuing position. Start date is ASAP.  Please send a statement of interest, curriculum vitae and three references to Laurie Wakschlag (lauriew@northwestern.edu).

Clinical Psychology Postdoctoral Fellows (posted 1/6/17)

 
Drs. Benjamin Hankin and Elysia Davis, at Departments of Psychology at University of Illinois and the University of Denver, respectively, invite applications for a postdoctoral fellow position, for grant funding for a 5-year NIMH R01. Title of the R01 is: “Reducing Fetal Exposure to Maternal Depression to Improve Infant Risk Mechanisms.” Fellows may be funded and supported for up to 3 years, pending performance and grant support. 
 
We seek applicants whose research interests and clinical research experience will contribute to the aims of the project. In this project, we will provide Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) to pregnant women who have elevated levels of depressive symptoms, including potential depression diagnosis and other psychopathologies, as part of a randomized clinical trial methodology, to examine the primary aims of whether reducing depression during pregnancy can affect infant risk mechanisms hypothesized to confer risk to later psychopathology in infants and children. Project aims focus on NIMH RDoC constructs including negative valence systems and cognitive control, with multiple methods and measures to assess these constructs across units of analysis, including MRI, eye tracking, behavioral observation, and physiology, in babies and infants. 
 
Although not all of the following are necessary, we prefer an applicant with experience in clinical research, and in particular providing evidence based psychological interventions, especially Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT). The Fellow will be trained in providing IPT for depressed pregnant women according to a manualized protocol and will receive supervision in the model throughout the course of the RCT. Additionally, experience, knowledge, and/ or research interest in mood disorders, especially maternal perinatal depression, mental health services among underserved and predominantly minority populations, as well as infant mental health, developmental psychopathology, and risk mechanisms, are desirable but not necessary. Finally, we seek applicants with strong interpersonal skills, prior clinical experience, and excellent organizational skills to enable management of a large multi-component RCT project with infant follow-ups.
 
The Primary Investigators (Drs. Hankin and Davis) for this project are committed to providing mentoring and research resources that will support fellows in their professional development, including opportunities to submit and publish papers, present research at conferences, and write new grant proposals, all in the effort of aiding the fellow toward establishing an independent research program. In addition to data that would result from this project providing IPT to depressed pregnant women and examining changes in infant risk mechanisms over time, the fellow would also have access to substantial data sets that the co Primary Investigators have collected.
 
Successful candidates must have a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline (e.g., clinical psychology) by the time the position starts (TBD). Please submit a letter of intent, curriculum vitae, a statement of current and future research plans, a statement of clinical experience, and evidence of providing excellent, evidence based clinical care. Applicants should also request at least three letters of recommendation from referees. 
 
All materials should be uploaded as one single PDF attachment and sent to Dr. Hankin at hankinb@illinois.edu. 
 
For inquiries about the position please contact Elysia Davis, Ph.D (Elysia.Davis@du.edu) or Benjamin L Hankin, Ph.D (hankinb@illinois.edu).

Assistant to Associate Professor Faculty Positions, Department of Medical Social Sciences, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Chicago (posted 6/19/16)

The Department of Medical Social Sciences (MSS), Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University invites applications for two junior-midcareer positions in the area of Medical Social Sciences.
 
MSS provides a unique scientific home for applied researchers who integrate biomedical and social science approaches to improvement of health and health care delivery across the lifespan (www.mss.northwestern.edu).  MSS provides rich resources for conducting research including a broad scientific portfolio with multiple, large scale datasets across the lifespan, biostatistical and health informatics cores, expertise in multi-level assessment methods and serving as a collaborative bridge across Northwestern’s campuses. MSS research is organized around three broad scientific clusters: Patient-centered Outcomes and Measurement Science, Health Promotion and Disease Prevention/Intervention, and Mechanisms of Health & Disease.
 
Patient-centered Outcomes and Measurement Science: We are interested in development and application of novel psychometric approaches that incorporate clinic- and e-health-based measurement, and integration of such approaches in electronic health records to facilitate continuity of care and improve patient-centered outcomes. Candidates with experience in industry or educational testing settings are also encouraged to apply for this position.
 
Health Promotion and Disease Prevention/Intervention: Approaches of interest include development and implementation of pragmatic and adaptive tailored interventions that are informed by state of the art measurement approaches to deliver necessary precision care to optimize health outcomes. We are interested in prevention/intervention research that builds on the strengths of extant MSS programs and transcends specific disease areas.  We are particularly interested in approaches that capture multi-level mechanisms of the impact of stress on health or targets prevention at the early phase of the disease susceptibility sequence.
 
Developmental Mechanisms of Health and Disease:  We are interested in translational research about the mechanisms shaping behavior, health and disease trajectories from the prenatal period to the end of life. In particular, we are interested in work that builds on our strengths in investigating the mechanisms of quality of life across a range of diseases, the impact of personality on health, the relationship between brain and behavior atypicalities, and how social experience beginning in the prenatal period shapes behavioral development and disease onset and progression.   
 
Of particular interest for our work in early life influences on emergent mental health pathways are applicants with expertise in neuroscience-oriented prevention and neurodevelopmental mechanisms of adverse prenatal exposures. We are also keenly interested in developmental cognitive neuroscientists with exceptional skill at design and analysis of task-based fMRI for various cognitive domains who seek the opportunity to collaborate with diverse interdisciplinary teams on novel applications of task-based fMRI on a range of disease areas and developmental populations.
 
One position is on the tenure track and one is on the team science track. MSS has a highly collaborative culture in which multiple investigators work in tandem on large-scale, team science research. A critical consideration will be the extent to which the candidates' focus is synergistic with ongoing Departmental research and culture of collaboration. All faculty at MSS are valued members of the research enterprise and are encouraged to participate at multiple levels in ongoing research regardless of track.  The broad parameters of the tracks are as follows:
  • Tenure track scientists are expected to have demonstrated an innovative programmatic approach to his/her research, an outstanding record of scholarly publication and a history of extramural funding or exceptional promise of such for junior investigators. Participation in Departmental teaching and training activities and University service are also expected and valued.
  • Team scientists have a vital collaborative role in providing critical expertise to a program or group of research teams as a co-investigator. Team scientists who wish to develop new lines of research as principal investigators that dovetail with Departmental programmatic initiatives are also encouraged to do so. Candidates should have a record of scholarly publication, and of leading or collaborating on extramurally-funded research. Collaborative orientation and skills in interdisciplinary and team science are desirable. Participation in Departmental teaching and training activities and University service are also expected and valued. In particular, the candidate will teach in the MSS Social Science and Health track of the Health Sciences Integrated PhD Program.
Applications will be considered until positions are filled. Salary will be commensurate with experience and credentials.   Additional information about the Department of Medical Social Sciences can be viewed at www.mss.northwestern.edu.
 
Please send a letter of interest (please reference position #P-179N-16 for team scientist and  # 27794 for tenure track) and research statement, curriculum vitae, representative reprints and names of three references to Judy Moskowitz, PhD Search Chair, c/o Katie Lambert.  Email: mss@northwestern.edu.
