The Child Language Lab and the Early Intervention Research Group at Northwestern University are looking for a bilingual (Spanish-English) Clinical Research Coordinator to work on longitudinal studies of bilingual children’s early language development.
The Child Language Lab, directed by Dr. Adriana Weisleder, will be starting an NIH-funded study examining trajectories of language development in Spanish-English bilingual late talkers. The Research Coordinator will assist with all aspects of the research, including participant recruitment, conducting standardized assessments and eye-tracking studies, transcribing and coding video data, training and supervising research assistants, and contributing to data analysis, presentations and publications.
This position will also work with the Early Intervention Research Group (EIRG), led by Dr. Megan Roberts, which examines the effects of early intervention for children with developmental delays (6 months to 5 years). EIRG has five federally funded clinical trials that look at the effects of early intervention on different populations, including toddlers with autism, preschool children with expressive and receptive language delays, and infants and young children with hearing loss.
Because studies blend research and clinical practice, this position requires a flexible and creative thinker who can work as part of an interdisciplinary team. We are looking for someone who can connect well with both young children and their caregivers and who is willing to take initiative and learn a variety of lab related responsibilities.
Preference will be given to applicants with a MS degree in speech-language pathology.
