Subject:Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, Child Maltreatment, Child/Adolescent Psychiatry, University of Pittsburgh

University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic POST-DOCTORAL RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP: TREATMENT DISSEMINATION AND IMPLEMENTATION RESEARCH WITH CHILDREN/YOUTH David J. Kolko, Ph.D., Amy D. Herschell, Ph.D., Barbara Baumann, Ph.D. Science and Practice for Effective Children’s Services (SPECS) 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 (WPIC), we seek candidates for a program that specializes in translational research at the university and community (efficacy-effectiveness) interface. The program trains clinical-researchers in 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 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 preferred) from an APAaccredited program with interests 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 NIMH-funded, T-32 fellowship must also be U.S. citizens. All 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. With a department consisting of over 230 faculty members, WPIC is consistently ranked among the top three federal grant recipients among university departments. Last year, WPIC was ranked the #1 Department of Psychiatry in regard to NIH funding (>$62 million dollars) based on a portfolio that included 170 research and research training projects relevant to mental health disorders and behavioral treatments, 38 NIH Career Development Awards (K Awards), and 52 post-doctoral fellows. The department has a strong commitment to training, research, and clinical service. For preliminary discussions: Please contact David J. Kolko, Ph.D., Professor of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Pediatrics (VOICE: 412-246-5888; e-mail: kolkodj@upmc.edu).
