The Child Study Center at NYU Langone Medical Center, a clinical research center specializing in the treatment of child and adolescent psychiatric disorders, is currently recruiting for a unique post-doctoral fellowship, which includes a transition to a junior faculty position, starting in August or September 2014. The Child Study Center is part of the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry of the New York University School of Medicine.
For the first time, the Child Study Center is offering a two-year position in which the first year is considered a post-doctoral fellowship and the second year is a junior faculty position at the NYU School of Medicine. This position is in the Anita Saltz Institute for Anxiety and Mood Disorders, which provides advanced training in empirically-supported cognitive behavioral treatment approaches with children and adolescents who present with internalizing disorder; the fellow will work under the mentorship of Aleta Angelosante, Ph.D. Specialty training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy will also be provided by Samuel Fasulo, Ph.D. provided.
During the post-doctoral year, the fellow will participate in a rich didactic program, receive supervision from multiple supervisors, conduct diagnostic assessments, and provide empirically supported treatments to youth with anxiety and mood disorders. The fellow will also be a full participant in the Adolescent DBT Service, which will include carrying adolescent DBT cases, co-leading DBT groups as appropriate, and participating in the weekly DBT Consultation Team meeting. Some familiarity with DBT is preferred but not required. In addition, the fellow will have the opportunity to teach and to provide supervision to an extern and may have the opportunity to participate in clinical research.
Fellows enjoy active collaboration with and participation in the Center's other Institutes. Individualized training programs are designed to take into account the Fellow's long-term career goals. Candidates should have a strong background in behavioral and cognitive behavioral interventions.
Once the fellow has accumulated all necessary hours for licensure and obtains a NY State license, s/he will be promoted to a junior faculty position. During the second year, the candidate will continue to have the opportunity to teach and supervise along with providing clinical care and diagnostic assessment. The candidate will spend this year building a clinical caseload and, if interested, developing a specialty area within the Child Study Center. At the end of the second year, the candidate may be offered a position to stay on as a full member of the faculty group practice.
This position requires a completion of an APA-approved internship and a doctoral degree from an APA program. In addition, the candidate cannot begin their fellowship until a NY State temporary permit has been obtained. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, with review of applications beginning December 16th and continuing until the position is filled.
Interested applicants should submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, graduate transcripts, three letters of reference, and a clinical work sample (treatment summary / testing report) to:
Lori Evans, Ph.D
Director of Training in Psychology
Deputy Director of the Faculty Group Practice
