Assistant Professor of Clinical Occupational Therapy (3)

The Chan Division of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy at the University of Southern California invites applicants for one full-time faculty position. The primary function of this position is to serve as the Clinical-Research Assessment Training Coordinator in the inspire lab working on specific research projects with infants, children with or at-risk for ASD, and their families. The successful candidate will be skilled in assessment practices, and responsible for training students or staff, to conduct and score various standardized (e.g., Bayley-4; Vineland-3) and lab-specific assessments (AOSI/TEDI, SPA, FYI, SEQ, Biobehavioral, Parent-Infant interaction protocol) to reliability standards. Responsibilities will include developing and setting up training manuals, materials, tracking systems for reliability, and conducting training sessions, including select videos. The successful candidate will also directly administer assessments in either live or telehealth formats, as well as supervise/mentor research assistants and OTD residents giving assessments to children and their parents. This person will also oversee the clinical interpretation of assessment results, and write reports and explain results and recommendations to families in person. This person will serve as investigator on key inspire lab research studies related to early identification of infants with risk for ASD or neurodevelopmental conditions, and will compile, submit and oversee IRBs related to these studies and assist with participant recruitment and implementation for these studies.

This position includes a service component assisting in the Division’s fieldwork team with out-of-state placements for Level II fieldwork in primarily pediatric settings, participating on strategic planning implementation teams related to research-teaching-clinical synergies within the Division, and may include some clinical practice in one of the Division’s innovative pediatric patient-care settings.

Qualifications include: An earned terminal degree (OTD) in occupational therapy, with a pediatric “research track” residency; current license to practice occupational therapy in California; and at least two years of experience working with clinical-research assessments in a lab setting related to infants and toddlers at risk for autism spectrum disorder and other neurodevelopmental conditions.

Preference given to applicants already trained in specific lab assessments including Bayley-4, Vineland-3, SPA, AOSI/TEDI, SEQ, FYI, Biobehavioral, Parent-Infant Interaction protocols, and measures of fidelity, as well as experience with training students/staff to conduct assessments live and via telehealth formats.

This position is available November 1, 2021.
