Job Announcement:

Ph.D. Research Position Available:  Developmental 
Neuropsychology/Operant Behavior in Children.  Ph.D. required, 
preferrably in Psychology, Behavioral Toxicology, Pharmacology, or 
Teratology or related area.  The Complex Brain Function Laboratory is 
located in the Center for Applied Research and Evaluation in the 
Department of Pediatrics (University of Arkansas for Medical 
Sciences) at Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock.  One full-
time Research Associate is provided in support of this position.  
Primary duties will be to continue and expand ongoing research into 
the use of operant behavioral techniques for assessing a variety of 
complex brain functions in children and to obtain grant support for 
the laboratory. A major focus will be on the use of automated operant 
behavioral measures for exploring the effects of drug and/or toxicant 
exposures and for differentiating specific clinical entities from 
'control/normal' children (i.e., attention deficit disorder, 
hyperactivity, learning disabled, etc.).  Additionally, comparisons 
of operant behavioral measures with those obtained from the more 
traditional neuropsychological instruments will be of paramount 
importance.  Possibilities for comparison of human data with those 
from animal models (nonhuman primates and rodents).  Early post- 
doctoral as well as more experienced candidates will be considered.  
Salary will begin at approximately $35,000/yr or higher, depending 
upon experience.  Anticipated start date could be as early as
September 1, 1995, or whenever after that a suitable match is 
found.
