Subject:Postdoctoral Fellows in Emotional Disturbance Program

Postdoctoral Fellows in Emotional Disturbance Program University of Nebraska and Boys Town University of Nebraska and Boys Town are inviting applications for post-doctoral fellows in the two year Postdoctoral Fellows in Emotional Disturbance Program. Fellows will work closely with a faculty advisor in the Department of Special Education and Communication Disorders matched to their interests in emotional disturbance and with Michael H. Epstein, Project Director. The fellows will work on IES, NIH and Boys Town supported programs related to the education, development, and well-being of children with Emotional Disturbance (ED) and related risk factors(e.g., child abuse and neglect). Fellows will be assigned to on-going research projects focused on academic functioning and instruction, positive behavioral and intervention supports (PBIS), transition/aftercare, implementation and fidelity research, peer relations and self-determination, family-based preventive and treatment interventions, and medication use and management. The UNL-Boys Town research partnership provides further opportunities because of the continuum of services provided by Boys Town. Specifically, Boys Town provides universal (e.g., school-based screening, PBIS), selected (e.g., parent training) and indicated prevention and indicated intervention programs (e.g., in-home services, medication management) in Omaha and communities nationwide. The goal of the postdoctoral research program is to prepare individuals with the research skills to assume leadership positions in the education, development, and well-being of children with emotional disturbance (ED). To this end, the experience will lead fellows to a) possess well-defined statistical and methodological skills necessary to conduct meaningful large-scale research projects (e.g., randomized trials, longitudinal studies); b) be knowledgeable and competent to develop, implement and evaluate intervention program and services for children with ED; c) possess skills to submit competitive grant applications to the Institute of Educational Sciences and National Institute of Health; and d) be experienced in writing for publication and presenting at professional conferences. Qualifications: Applicants should have a doctoral degree in special education, psychology, social work, or related area. Assistant professors as well as recent doctoral graduates are encouraged to apply. Applicants should send a letter of application indicating their areas of interest in research with children with ED and relevant work, CV, and a list of references to Michael H. Epstein (mepstein1@unl.edu). U.S. citizenship or permanent residency required. Start dates are flexible, beginning August, 2011. Applications will be reviewed as received. University of Nebraska is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer. Members of under-represented minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply. Salary is $52,500 each year for 2 years. There is a fund of $11,000 per year, per fellow to cover computers, supplies, books, publications, conference travel and other materials needed for research. Here is the contact person.
