POST-DOCTORAL RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP IN Treatment Dissemination and Implementation Research with Children/Youth David J. Kolko, Ph.D., Amy D. Herschell, Ph.D., Barbara Baumann, Ph.D., and Lovie J. Jackson, Ph.D. Science and Practice for Effective Children’s Services In the context of a post-doctoral research fellowship in the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine/Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic (David Brent, MD, PI), we seek candidates for a program that specializes in translational research at the university and community (efficacy-effectiveness) interface. The program provides specialized training to clinical-researchers who wish to acquire the skills necessary to design and conduct treatment dissemination/implementation trials in “real-world” settings. Our portfolio includes clinical trials and projects that draw upon the application of evidence-based treatments for child/adolescent populations (e.g., behavior problems/disorders, adolescent sexual abusers, child physical abuse/family violence) in community settings/systems that have become increasingly involved in the delivery of mental health services (e.g., pediatric primary care, juvenile justice, child welfare, community mental health). Fellows are encouraged to contribute to and/or manage existing clinical trials, develop treatment research grant applications, and disseminate products having scientific, practice, and policy implications. In all of these venues, opportunities are provided to work with research investigators and community leaders/practitioners on treatment research projects that integrate clinical assessments, extend treatment guidelines to real-world settings, and train/collaborate with professionals in multiple service sectors. We seek individuals with a Ph.D. in psychology (clinical /quantitative) from an APA-accredited program who have an interest in addressing the efficacy-effectiveness continuum, potential for excellence in scholarship/academic research, and the ability to work creatively and collaboratively. A good grounding in CBT/parent training with children/adolescents and their families, exposure to vulnerable and underserved populations, and familiarity with applied research in developmental psychopathology, is encouraged. Candidates for this T-32 fellowship must also be U.S. citizens. A high proportion of the graduates of this post-doctoral program have received external (federal) funding. Fellows also have an opportunity to interact with some of the country’s leading clinical treatment researchers in child/adolescent psychology and psychiatry, and adult psychiatry. Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic (WPIC) is part of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. WPIC is consistently ranked among the top three federal grant recipients among university departments in this country. During the last fiscal year, WPIC was ranked the #1 Department of Psychiatry in regard to NIH funding (in excess of $62 million dollars). There are 170 ongoing research and research training projects at WPIC that address basic and clinical research issues relevant to mental health disorders and behavioral treatments. At present, the department consists of 232 faculty members, of whom 38 have been awarded NIH Career Development Awards (K Awards). Over time, WPIC has continuously demonstrated a strong commitment to training, research, and clinical service. In fact, there are now 52 post-doctoral fellows at WPIC who participate in programs that are designed to facilitate the education of junior health professionals through continued specialized training. In addition to outstanding mentorship opportunities, post-doctoral fellows participate in seminars designed to improve grant development, manuscript preparation, and statistical skills. For preliminary discussions: Please contact David J. Kolko, Ph.D., Professor of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Pediatrics (412-246-5888; Kolkodj@upmc.edu ).
