Additional Department Summary: Dr. Bradley A. White, Director of the Cognition, Emotion, and Self-Regulation Lab in the University of Alabama Center for Youth Development and Intervention is actively seeking a project coordinator to contribute to our funded NIMH R61/R33 clinical trial. This study tests a computerized Facial Affect Sensitivity Training Intervention that focuses on improving affect sensitivity in children ages 6-11 with callous-unemotional traits.

The project coordinator will work closely with Dr. White and directly with participants in the clinical trial. They will co-lead and help coordinate most areas of the project, including staff training and supervision; ensuring compliance with human subjects protections and good clinical practice; recruitment, scheduling, and screening of participants; and data collection and processing (e.g., clinical and psychophysiological indices such as eye-tracking and EEG). They will have the opportunity to be involved in manuscript development and dissemination of study findings. They will work collaboratively on a daily basis with a large research team, including several faculty Co-Is, graduate and undergraduate research assistants, and staff at The Center for Youth Development and Intervention on the University of Alabama campus in Tuscaloosa.
Required Minimum Qualifications: Bachelor's degree and one year of experience.
Preferred Qualifications: Bachelor's degree in Psychology or a related field (e.g., human development, child and family studies, social work, or health/med-preparatory sciences) with prior research experience. Prior research coordinator experience and prior experience working with children are preferred.
