Postdoctoral fellowships are available with the NIH-funded Stress and Immunity Cancer Projects (SICP).  The ideal candidate has a research interest in psychological treatments for cancer or other medically ill patients and dissemination and implementation research with mental health community partners.  Primary responsibilities will center on our R25E grant for training mental health professionals on delivery of a biobehavioral intervention for cancer patients and empirical study of subsequent intervention implementation by those trained therapists. Research tasks include on-going communication with therapists to identify and transcend barriers of implementation and document efficacy as part of a cooperative group developed between the SICP and therapists.  Other tasks are data analysis, and manuscript and grant preparation.  Of secondary importance are clinical skills including diagnostic interviewing, assessment and treatment of cancer patients. Candidates with superior conceptual, research, analytical and clinical skills are sought.  Qualifications for this position include a Ph.D. in clinical psychology (dissertation successfully defended prior to start date, no exceptions) and expertise in providing cognitive-behavioral therapy.  Experience with cancer patients, dissemination/implementation, and/or clinical trials research is preferred.

Position is 75% research and 25% clinical.  Additional research projects are easily and immediately available with existing datasets.  Career development activities include training in multidisciplinary and multi-institutional/organizational collaboration, writing, grantsmanship, and graduate/undergraduate student mentoring.  Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience.  Start date is flexible; the successful applicant could begin as soon as March 1.

Candidates should submit a statement of career interests and goals, curriculum vitae, and three letters of recommendation to Dr. Barbara L.
