Marcus Autism Center, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, and Emory University School of Medicine, are conducting a search for an outstanding psychologist with specialization in assessment of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to join the Division of Autism and Related Disabilities. This position focuses on differential diagnostic evaluation for children ages 12 months to 18 years who are referred due to a concern of ASD. There is an emphasis on early identification in children younger than 3 years old. The program stresses providing caregivers an initial understanding of ASD and developing empirically supported treatment recommendations.
We are looking for individuals who are interested in providing a high level of clinical care and who are interested in contributing to innovative assessment and research activities.
The psychologist will join a multidisciplinary assessment team that includes professionals from speech/language pathology, medicine, and care coordination/social work.

There will also be opportunities for independent and/or collaborative research by joining our research involving the characterization of children with ASD.
Successful candidates will be well-trained, possess a PhD in clinical psychology, school psychology, or a related field and have completed an APA-accredited internship and postdoctoral fellowship. Ideal candidates will have clinical training/background in assessment of toddlers and preschoolers and be research reliable in administering the ADOS-2.
