Subject:[Fwd: Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships at the NCVC]

POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS IN TRAUMATIC STRESS RESEARCH The National Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center (NCVC) at the Medical University of South Carolina (www.musc.edu/ncvc ) invites applications for its NIMH-funded post-doctoral research training program. We anticipate that 1-2 positions will be filled. The NCVC offers post-doctoral fellowship training for entry level and/or experienced mental health professionals who want to develop research and clinical expertise in understanding forms of civilian trauma. The fellowship is designed to be completed in two years. Stipends are based on NIH-designated levels. Applicants should possess a strong commitment to the scientist-practitioner model and must hold a doctoral degree in psychology, psychiatry, social work, or similar field. The NCVC fellowship training program is designed to produce professionals skilled in strategies to investigate the impact of traumatic events upon adults and children. Our research training program provides trainees with mentorship, coursework, seminars, mental health treatment experiences, and research experiences they need to do competent, interdisciplinary, translational traumatic stress research. All fellows will be mentored by NCVC faculty, and postdoctoral fellows will have a basic or basic clinical science co-mentor. Co-mentors include M.D.s and Ph.D.s with a broad range of scientific expertise including behavioral genetics, neurobiology, neuroimaging, child psychiatry, substance abuse, treatment efficacy, and services research. The NCVC has a number of major funded projects that include national epidemiological studies of exposure to traumatic stressors and risk of mental disorders, gene-environment interaction studies of resilience following exposure to disasters, treatment development and randomized clinical trials (RCTs), and projects addressing translation of effective treatments to clinical practice. The NCVC is a division of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, South Carolina. The affiliation with a strong academic department complements the strong post-doctoral training available through the NCVC fellowship. The NCVC faculty includes 12 doctoral level professionals, all of whom are energetic and enthusiastic participants in the fellowship training program. The common interest of the faculty in traumatic stress provides a basis for building strong research programs. All faculty encourage collaboration with fellows within the context of their research activities. Charleston is a lovely and historic ocean-side city with wonderful things to do and see. Beaches, boating, fishing, golf, and other outdoor amenities combine with a strong value of historic and environmental preservation and a relatively low cost of living to produce a wonderful place to live and work. Applications must include: a) letter of interest outlining the basis of your interest in the fellowship and goals for advanced training in traumatic stress research; b) recent c.v.; c) at least three letters of recommendation (sent directly by references); and d) any p/reprints you feel would help to demonstrate your research proficiency. For full consideration, by Monday December 14, 2009, send application materials to: Daniel W. Smith, Ph.D., Director of Training National Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center Medical University of South Carolina 165 Cannon Street, Box 250852 Charleston, S.C. 29425 You may email application materials to Dr. Smith at smithdw@musc.edu , contact him for more information, and/or read more at http://academicdepartments.musc.edu/psychology_internship/postdoc_training.htm .
