Post-Doctoral Fellowship focused on Stress/Anxiety in Military Families

The Sleep and Anxiety Center for Kids (SACK) at the University of Houston invites applicants for a one to two-year post-doctoral fellowship to begin in or around August 2014. The fellow will help coordinate a large, multi-site study funded by the Department of Defense examining the effects of military deployment on children and families using both biological and psychological measures of stress. Responsibilities include (but are not limited to) data collection and management, recruitment, conducting clinical assessments (sometimes involving travel within the state of Texas), supervising study staff, and interacting with military and industry leaders. The position will offer fellows multiple opportunities for paper authorship, grant writing and professional presentations and will include direct supervision from a licensed clinical psychologist. Fellows are also encouraged to initiate and carry out relevant research projects of their own.  Applicants should have a doctoral degree in psychology from an APA-accredited program, be highly motivated, and have strong oral and written English communication skills. The successful candidate will ideally, but not necessarily have experience with the military community, strong organizational skills, and the ability to lead and delegate. To apply, please send a cover letter, CV, 1-page statement of research background and interests, 2 reprints/preprints (or other writing samples) and have three letters of recommendation emailed directly to Dr. Candice Alfano  Application review will continue until the position is filled.

The University of Houston is an Equal Opportunity / Affirmative Action institution. Minorities, women, veterans and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
