The MIRECC at the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare Center is recruiting psychologists (or other associated health fellows) for a two-year fellowship program. The primary goal of the program is to train psychologists to become leading clinical researchers with an emphasis in serious mental illness. The fellowship combines individual mentored research and clinical training with state-of-the-art educational experiences. Fellows spend approximately 75% of their time in patient-oriented research and 25% time providing direct clinical services. 

The opportunities for training will reside in the research, clinical, and educational programs at the West Los Angeles Division of the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System, the units of the MIRECC, and the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA. The MIRECC research programs are internationally recognized in a broad range of research areas including cognitive neuroscience, electrophysiology, neuropsychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, psychosocial interventions, cognitive remediation, psychiatric rehabilitation, clinical psychopharmacology, health services, and implementation science. The Co-Directors and the MIRECC faculty have a strong commitment to translational research that links basic science to clinical research and clinical research to services research.  

Eligible psychologists (or associated clinicians) must be U.S. citizens. They must have graduated from an American Psychological Association (APA) accredited doctoral program in clinical or counseling psychology (or an equivalent program in another discipline). Completion of an APA accredited internship in clinical or counseling psychology is also required.

MIRECC faculty members (and their research interests) include: Michael F. Green, Ph.D. (cognitive neuroscience, functional outcome); William P. Horan, Ph.D. (social cognition, emotion processing, negative symptom assessment); Robert S. Kern, Ph.D. (neuropsychology, cognitive rehabilitation, psychiatric rehabilitation, social cognition); Shirley Glynn, Ph.D.(cognitive behavioral therapy, family interventions, psychosocial treatment research); Stephen R. Marder, M.D. (clinical psychopharmacology, pharmacological and psychosocial interventions); Alexander S. Young, M.D., M.S.H.S. (health services, quality of care, implementation science); Amy N. Cohen, Ph.D. (health services, family interventions).

Interested psychologists (or associated clinicians) who meet the eligibility requirements should send a cover letter and curriculum vita to Robert Kern, Ph.D. (e-mail: rkern@ucla.edu). The cover letter should specify the reasons for your interest in this particular fellowship training program, a brief overview of your previous clinical and research experiences, and how you see this program promoting your professional and career goals. Our fellowship is an equal opportunity training program. Hence, we strive to create a diverse training group and consider minority status to be a beneficial factor in achieving this goal. Thus, we give weight to minority status in our selection rankings. Applications are currently being accepted for the postdoctoral fellowship position beginning in September 2015.

 POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW/PROJECT DIRECTOR position is available in the Department of Psychology at Northwestern University under the direction of Robin Nusslock, Ph.D. and Richard Zinbarg, Ph.D.  The position involves primary responsibility for the overall functioning and coordination of the Northwestern site of a NIMH R01 funded prospective, longitudinal two-site, study (the second site is UCLA under the direction of Michelle G. Craske, Ph.D. and Susan Bookheimer, Ph.D.). The project uses structural and functional neuroimaging to examine the cross-sectional and longitudinal relationship between threat- and reward-related neural circuitries and symptom dimensions of anxiety and depression during the developmental transition from adolescence to adulthood.

Requirements:

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Psychology, Neuroscience, or a related field.  The position provides a unique opportunity to work with structural (e.g., Diffusion Tensor Imaging) and functional MRI data in preparation for publication. Opportunities will also be available to participate in neurophysiology based research on participants with whom MRI data is also collected. Publication opportunities and collaborative research opportunities are plentiful and strongly encouraged. Prior experience with neuroimaging is preferred but not required.

Contract duration

 The postdoctoral fellowship may be renewable for up to several additional years based on job performance and funding availability, by mutual agreement.  The position is available immediately although the specific start date is negotiable.  Northwestern University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer, and we especially encourage applications from women and members of under-represented minorities. 

To apply:

 To apply for this position, please send a curriculum vita, cover letter describing research interest and experience, and have three letters of recommendation sent via email to Dr. Robin Nusslock (nusslock@northwestern.edu) and Dr. Richard Zinbarg, (rzinbarg@northwestern.edu).
