The Waisman Center is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge about human development, developmental disabilities, and neurodegenerative diseases throughout the lifespan. One of 14 centers of its kind in the United States, the Waisman Center encompasses laboratories for biomedical and behavioral research, a brain imaging center, and a clinical bio-manufacturing facility for the production of pharmaceuticals for early stage human clinical trials. In addition to its research efforts, the Center provides an array of services to people with developmental disabilities, offers numerous educational and outreach programs to young children and their families, and trains scientists and clinicians who will serve our nation in the future.
The Social and Behavioral Development Laboratory investigates genetic and environmental factors that contribute to individual differences in the development of psychopathology, including depression, ADHD, and other externalizing disorders. The lab's primary project is a prospective longitudinal study examining reward sensitivity and self-control in young children (ages 8-11). All participants are invited into the laboratory to have their saliva collected for DNA analysis, and to perform various tasks including parent-child interaction paradigms, neuropsychological tests, clinical interviews, and other lab-based tasks. Additionally, the lab is launching a Waisman Center-wide study examining co-occurring Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD in young children (ages 4-6) and their parents.
This position will be responsible for providing technical assistance to research projects within the lab, such as managing and analyzing data, scheduling study assessments, and serving as a liaison, as well as performing administrative lab management responsibilities.
