Drs. Brian Baucom and Craig Bryan, at the University of Utah’s Department of Psychology and National Center for Veterans Studies, invite applications for a full-time, postdoctoral fellowship research position. Drs. Baucom and Bryan have an opening for a 12-month federally-funded postdoctoral fellowship; the fellowship may be extended for another 12 months pending the availability of funds. Primary responsibilities will include oversight and coordination of a 3-year, Department of Defense-funded study of behavioral and cognitive predictors of proximal risk for suicide. The study recruits individuals and their romantic partners for participation and conceptualizes romantic relationships as a primary social context for understanding risk and protective factors. Additional responsibilities of the fellowship include analysis of data and preparation of manuscripts from the study. The fellowship will also provide training in a range of areas, including the assessment of suicide and PTSD in the military, romantic relationships, psychophysiology, and advanced statistical modeling of intensively sampled data. Additional information about the National Center for Veterans Studies and its ongoing projects is available online: www.veterans.utah.edu .
Qualified applicants will have earned a Ph.D., Psy.D., or equivalent in Clinical or Counseling Psychology. Additionally, ideal candidates will have a strong background in military mental health, romantic relationships, and/or advanced quantitative methods. Comfort with technology and internet-based data collection is also desirable. Salary and benefits will be commensurate with NIH guidelines concerning years of experience.
The fellowship has a January, 2016 start date but that is very flexible. Applications will be accepted until position is filled; review of applications will begin in November, 2015 and continue on a rolling basis. Applications include a vita, three letters of recommendation, and relevant (p)reprints and can be sent to Dr. Baucom at Department of Psychology, 380 S. 1530 E.
