Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium - 1 research postdoctoral fellowship

The Humanities and Social Sciences Group; Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences; Centre for the Psychology of Learning and Experimental are looking for a postdoctoral fellow for three years (starting October 2011) (1 year, extended with 2 additional years after positive evaluation of year one). 

Interested? For our recently started Center of Excellence research program GRIP-TT (Generalization Research in Ill Health and Psychopathology : Transdiagnostic processes and Transfer), carried out by a consortium of the Center of Learning Psychology and Experimental Psychopathology and the Research Group on Health Psychology. Doctor-assistant (f/m) - ABV201158 The Research Programme focuses on the psychological and psychobiological mechanisms that play a role in the generalization of complaints in psychopathology (e.g. depression, anxiety) or somatic problems (e.g. asthma, chronic pain). One of the core assumptions of the program is that mechanisms of generalization have a crucial impact on the development of normal day-today complaints into problematic pathological syndromes. E.g. if one is bitten by a dog, fear for this animal is functional; it becomes a problem when fear generalizes to all other dogs, other animals or even pictures of dogs. The study of generalization is approached from an experimental psychological perspective. A variety of paradigms and research methodologies are included, such as psychophysiological measures, reaction time paradigms and conditioning preparations, as well as self report measures. Within the overall research programme, several lines of research are of a fundamental nature and are conducted in healthy samples of participants, while other studies will be performed within subclinical or clinical groups.

  • The postdoctoral fellow will perform a series of studies within the framework of the research program GRIP-TT (±70% of time). For the remaining time (±30%) there will be the opportunity to develop relevant leadership skills (e.g. taking up organizational and management tasks, guidance of PhD students, coordination of collaboration with peripheral partners, writing new research projects). The focus of the own studies within the program is (co-)depending on personal background and interest. 
  • The post-doc will be responsible for the acquisition and statistical analysis of data, and the scientific writing of the results in international peer-reviewed journals. Administrative tasks and teaching will be limited. 
  • On regular occasions, the candidate will meet with the other staff of GRIP-TT program. This project will be carried out in close collaboration with an international network of researchers. 
  • PhD in Psychology, Health Sciences, Neuroscience 
  • Strong interest and enthusiasm for (experimental) research in the area of psychological processes in somatic diseases and/or psychopathology. 
  • Be able to initiate new research ideas for additional studies 
  • Be willing and able to supervise graduate students 
  • Ability to work independently and to contribute to the research environment of the research group. 
  • Be well organized and having some managerial skills. 
  • Excellent communication skills in English (both verbally as scientific writing).

Program Philosophy and Model of Training: We offer and implement advanced Clinical Psychology training with a rural psychology emphasis, in accord with a scholar-practitioner model.  In the process of rebuilding a formal research program, we identify with and conceptualize from a scientist-practitioner model.  We offer advanced postdoctoral training within the traditional practice area of Clinical Psychology, with an emphasis in Posttraumatic Stress Disorder/Mental Health.  At the postdoctoral level, we aim to train ethically grounded, culturally aware clinical psychologists with advanced competency in thoughtful development and application of evidence-based psychological assessment, treatment, and consultation skills for the benefit of persons and organizations, particularly within a rural environment.

Training Requirements and Rotations: By completion of the program, it is expected that residents would have developed advanced competencies in psychological assessment, psychotherapy, consultation, and professionalism, relevant to the particular practice area.  Residents are expected to meet core requirements regarding minimum numbers and types of assessment, intervention, and consultation training experiences.  Clinical Psychology residents train in the PTSD Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and in at least one other rotation among the following treatment settings: PTSD Clinical Team (PCT), Integrated Primary Care (IPC) Team, and Outpatient Mental Health Clinic (MHC).

Seminars: Didactic experiences are considered to be an integral part of the postdoctoral training.  The postdoctoral residents are provided with a wide range of didactic learning experiences.  Clinical Psychology residents are currently required to participate in the following educational seminar and training offerings: ACT Clinical Supervision Group, Professional Development Seminar, Case Conceptualization Conference, Journal Club, Research Forum, Psychology Case Conference, and a series of cultural diversity seminars within a Clinical Psychology Seminar.  They are required to provide presentations within the Clinical Psychology Seminar and to take VA Learning Management System (LMS) on-line training courses in Clinical Practice Guidelines for PTSD and the VA Human Subjects Protection and Good Clinical Practices Course.  Residents may also participate in other Clinical Psychology Seminars, other VA Talent Management System (TMS) on-line training courses, a Clinical Assessment Supervision Group, the CPT Clinical Consultation Group, PTSD conference calls, Integrated Primary Care conference calls, Mental Health Grand Rounds, Dartmouth Psychiatry Grand Rounds, community mental health training workshops, and professional psychology conferences.

Stipend and Benefits: 
Current residents receive a per annum training stipend of $42,239.  The training appointment is for one calendar year (July through June, August through July, or September through August).  All full-time VA psychology fellowships are designated as 2,080 hours per year, including 10 excused federal holidays, 13 days of accrued annual vacation leave, and up to 13 days of earned sick leave.  The fellowship appointment provides optional medical and life insurance benefits for which residents pay a share of the premium.  An Employee Assistance Program provides no cost assessment visits.  Each resident receives use of well-appointed, individual office space with a personal computer linked to the local area network.  Athletic facilities are available on site.  The Medical Center has an excellent, fully-staffed medical library. Professional development is encouraged as part of the training experience, with some funding typically available for professional psychology conferences. Authorized absence may be granted with appropriate approval for participation in professional psychology conferences, off-site research time if of direct benefit to the VA, and job interviews with a federal agency.

Eligibility: Applicants must have completed all requirements for the doctoral degree, which includes internship and the successful defense of their dissertation, prior to starting the postdoctoral residency.  The Department of Veterans Affairs requires that residents are U.S. citizens, and that both doctoral degree and internship have been completed from programs that are accredited by the American Psychological Association.  Togus VA Medical Center is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
