POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS IN TRAUMATIC STRESS RESEARCH The National Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center (NCVC) in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Medical University of South Carolina is seeking applications for its NIMH-funded T-32 post-doctoral research training program. This program is in its 25th year of funding, and our competing renewal application was reviewed and received an Impact/Priority score in the exceptional to outstanding range. Based on this score and discussions with NIMH program staff, we expect the renewal application to receive five additional years of funding. The number of fellowship positions to be filled will depend upon the number of slots that are funded. The NCVC offers post-doctoral fellowship training for entry level and/or experienced mental health professionals who want to develop the clinical research skills necessary to pursue an independent research career in the field of traumatic stress, with a particular emphasis on 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 clinical science and must hold a doctoral degree in psychology, psychiatry, social work, or similar field. The NCVC fellowship training program is designed to produce clinical scientists 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 necessary to do competent, interdisciplinary, and translational traumatic stress research. All fellows will have a primary NCVC faculty mentor and a co-mentor in a complementary field. Co-mentors include Ph.D.s and M.D.s with a broad range of scientific expertise including (but not limited to) developmental psychopathology, behavioral and molecular genetics, HIV prevention, neuroscience, substance abuse, treatment efficacy, and dissemination and implementation research. The NCVC has a number of major extramurally-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 (including mobile and web-based translations). 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 (ranked 7th in the country for NIH funding across US Departments of Psychiatry) complements the outstanding 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 beautiful and historic ocean-side city with fun and interesting 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 (inclusive of long term career goals); 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. Send application materials BY FRIDAY, DECEMBER 14 to: Carla Kmett Danielson, Ph.D., Director of Training National Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center Medical University of South Carolina 67 President St., MSC 861 Charleston, S.C. 29425 You may email application materials (preferred method) to Dr. Danielson at danielso@musc.edu , contact her for more information, and/or read more at http://academicdepartments.musc.edu/psychology_internship/postdoc_training.htm. -- Benjamin E.
