You will work within the Preschool Imaging Project (PIP). The main aim is to identify prognostic, stratification, and/or outcome biomarkers for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in preschoolers. PIP is a multi-site multi-disciplinary study that employs a longitudinal design. The sites are Nijmegen, London, Ghent, Paris and Stockholm, and PIP aims to follow in total N=400 children (ASD = 200, typical development (TD) = 200) from approximately 3 to 6 years. You will be involved in data collection at three time-points (3-4 years, 4-5 years, 5-6 years). You will assess clinical core and associated symptoms at all time-points to fit longitudinal developmental symptom trajectories, and acquire "deep-phenotypic" measures of candidate biomarkers (including cognition, eye-tracking, EEG, and MRI acquired during natural sleep) at the two earlier time points.

Tasks and responsibilities

  • Recruitment and selection of participating children/families, for ASD participants in collaboration with clinical teams of Karakter (Infant psychiatry team).
  • Assess ADI-R and ADOS measures, cognitive measures
  • Assist in assessing EEG/ERP and eye-tracking measures.
  • Assist in acquiring MRI measures. Please note: the latter will involve working outside office hours (in the evening) since the MRI scans will be acquired when the pre-schooler sleeps.
  • Data processing, and storage.
  • Frequent communication (teleconferences etcera) with the teams at the other sites.

Benefits

The gross monthly salary, depending on experience will be scale 6 (max. € 2.815) or scale (max. € 3.099) based on a full-time working week (excl. vacation bonus and 8,3% end of year payments).

Upon commencement of employment we require a certificate of conduct (Verklaring Omtrent het Gedrag, VOG) and there will be, depending on the type of job, a screening based on the provided cv. Radboud university medical center's HR Department will apply for this certificate on your behalf.
