FULL-TIME RESEARCH POSITIONS AVAILABLE — NEUROBEHAVIORAL RESEARCH TEAM PRECLINICAL LAB
PI: Craig Erickson, MD
The goal of Dr. Craig Erickson’s Neurobehavioral Research Team at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) in Cincinnati, OH is to advance the field of knowledge of the causes and treatment of autism spectrum disorders (ASD), fragile X syndrome (FXS), and related neurodevelopmental disorders. Our large research group spans laboratory-based scientific investigation, human biomarker development, human electrophysiology, clinical trials, and treatment in affected populations. Our long-term goal is to advance personalized treatment approaches and to improve outcomes for children and adults with neurodevelopmental disorders.
To this end, our translational neuroscience laboratory studies the underlying pathophysiology of these neurodevelopmental disorders through both human and animal models. Using patient blood samples from our clinical research, we conduct molecular analyses to identify and study potential blood based peripheral biomarkers. With both our molecular research projects and numerous human studies, we hope to better understand the pathophysiology of neurodevelopmental disorders and to identify potential pharmacotherapeutic targets and biomarkers of treatment response. Our lab is highly collaborative with both the clinical side of our research group as well as other neuroscience labs at CCHMC, and presents significant opportunities for learning, growth, and exposure to many types of research.
We currently have openings in our lab for a research assistant. We are looking for someone with previous laboratory experience who is able to work both independently and collaboratively.
