Postdoctoral Fellowship in Child and Adolescent Anxiety/Depression Research

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Child and Adolescent Anxiety/Depression Research 

The University of Miami PEERS Project and the Child and Adolescent Mood and Anxiety Treatment (CAMAT) Program at the University of Miami are actively seeking a postdoctoral scholar-clinician to meaningfully contribute to our clinical research investigations and ongoing youth services for a one- to two-year fellowship to begin in Summer 2014 (date TBD). The selected postdoctoral fellow would contribute to an NIMH-funded clinical trial for the prevention of social anxiety and depression in adolescents (PEERS Project) and to evidence-based 
assessment and treatment services to youths and their families experiencing primary anxiety and depressive disorders (CAMAT). As a postdoctoral fellow, major opportunities exist for grant writing, publications and overall experience with the conduct of clinical prevention and intervention trials. Candidates for this postdoctoral fellowship must have a completed PhD or PsyD in Clinical or Counseling Psychology or provide documentation that they are on track to complete all doctoral requirements for the PhD/PsyD prior to the fellowship start date. They also must have prior experience in the cognitive behavioral treatment of anxious and/or depressed youth. Strongest preference will be given to those with an interest in pursuit of a research-oriented career in clinical science and those with a strong background in clinical research, grantsmanship, statistics and/or a competitive publication history. However, those with a more strongly clinical interest in the population will also be considered.

Candidates should send a statement of interest and current CV and arrange for the receipt of at least two letters of recommendation via email ASAP to either (a) Jill Ehrenreich-May, Ph.D., Associate Professor and Director, Child and Adolescent Mood and Anxiety Treatment Program at the University of Miami at j.ehrenreich@miami.edu or (b) Annette La Greca, PhD, ABPP, Distinguished Professor, Director of the PEERS Project, at alagreca@miami.edu. Interested applicants may also contact Drs. Ehrenreich-May or La Greca for more details. 

Additional information is contained on the faculty websites for Drs. La Greca and Ehrenreich-May (www.psy.miami.edu/faculty) and the Child and Adolescent Mood and Anxiety Treatment Program webpage (www.miami.edu/childanxiety).

The University of Miami is an equal opportunity employer.
