Research Study Therapist located in Colorado Springs, Colorado

The University of Utah's Department of Psychology is currently seeking to hire a research study therapist as part of a Department of Defense-funded randomized control trial being conducted at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

All clinical work will be conducted within the Division of Behavioral Health clinical facilities and Evans Army Community Hospital at Fort Carson.
Successful candidates will receive training and supervision by Craig J. Bryan, PsyD, ABPP (Principal Investigator), and Tracy Clemans, PsyD (Project Manager), who are military suicide researchers and clinicians.

Applicants must have a master's degree in a mental health field (e.g., psychology, social work, psychiatric nursing).
