Seeking a lead research coordinator for a reading intervention study

The Center for Neurodevelopmental and Imaging Research (CNIR) at Kennedy Krieger is seeking a full-time research coordinator to lead a study investigating the impact of an eight-week, web-based reading program on various language processes. The research coordinator will help implement various research processes and protocols, including recruiting, screening, scheduling, and testing children, ages 8-15, with neurodevelopmental disorders and learning disabilities (e.g., ADHD, dyslexia). The research coordinator will be responsible for working with community partners to share information about the study, field questions from community partners and families who are interested in being involved, work alongside research staff at the Center for Neurodevelopmental and Imaging Research to schedule and assess participants, score and manage data, and prepare parent reports.

In addition to assessing participants at CNIR, the research coordinator will work with collaborating schools to enroll students into the study. This requires interfacing with school administration, teachers, parents, and students. This may require travel up to 90 mins away from Hopkins East Baltimore campus. The research coordinator will visit with schools, set up student accounts, and instruct teachers on how to navigate the web interface. The research coordinator will schedule assessment dates with students and coordinate with research staff at CNIR to ensure assessments are completed.

Requirements: bachelor's degree in psychology, sociology, education, or a related field. Experience or academic training in research design. Comfortable interfacing with families, school administrators, and children ages 8-15.

Work environment: hybrid (at least 10 hours per week remote). If you are interested in applying, write to Alyssa DeRonda at
