We are seeking a Post-Doctoral Fellow with a strong foundation in child interventions research to begin as soon as possible, but no later than August 2016. The Post-Doctoral Fellow will be primarily involved with coordinating an NIMH-funded R01 examining the efficacy of a developmentally-grounded early intervention program for behaviorally inhibited preschoolers which combines an adaptation of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and a social skills program (PIs: Andrea Chronis-Tuscano and Kenneth H. Rubin). Responsibilities include project coordination, assessment of young children and their parents using the Anxiety Disorders Interview Schedule (ADIS), recruitment from area preschools, treatment implementation, and treatment/research staff supervision. Opportunities for data analysis, manuscript preparation, and grant writing are available and encouraged. Clinical supervision for licensure will be provided. Qualifications for this position include a Ph.D. in clinical psychology and a strong foundation in evidence-based diagnostic assessment and treatment for children, as well as excellent social, organizational, writing and data analysis skills. Applicants who have a background in PCIT and/or cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for child anxiety disorders will be given strongest consideration. A background in behavioral parent training more broadly will also be viewed favorably.
Please submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, reprints/preprints, and three letters of recommendation to Dr. Andrea Chronis-Tuscano via email (firstname.lastname@example.org; subject heading: Turtle Post-Doc Application).
