STAFF RESEARCH POSITION The Behavioral Science Division (Boston) of the National Center for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder anticipates one or more staff positions with duties beginning in 2016.
The National Center is a multi-site consortium within the
Department of Veteran Affairs. The Behavioral Science Division is
nationally recognized for developing model research and clinical
programs in stress and trauma. The Division has outstanding
resources for research, training, and clinical activities. Exceptional
opportunities exist for professional collaboration with a wide array of
local researchers, staff at six other National Center divisions, and
investigators in other academic, VA, and military settings.
A major focus of National Center research is adjustment following
military service, but candidates who have background in related areas
or with other types of trauma are welcomed. Trauma-related topics in
the areas of sleep, health, or aging are among current priorities.
Requirements for a position are a doctoral degree plus
demonstrated skills in research, scientific publication, and grant
writing. Clinical psychologists must have graduate training and clinical
internship from APA-accredited programs, as well as existing
professional licensure or eligibility for licensure.
Division staff participate in the training and supervision of
postdoctoral fellows and predoctoral interns. Faculty appointment at
the Boston University School of Medicine is anticipated. Salary and
benefits are competitive.
