University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland, USA - 1 postdoctoral fellowship (Intervention Research)

Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Interventions Research with Young Children
University of Maryland, College Park Department of Psychology
Ideally Beginning Fall 2011

We are seeking a Post-Doctoral Fellow with a strong foundation in interventions research with children/adolescents. The Post-Doctoral Fellow will be primarily involved in two projects: (1) a study examining the feasibility and preliminary efficacy of an early prevention program for preschool-aged children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) who are at increased risk for developing later depression and suicidal behavior; and (2) an NIMH-funded treatment development study which aims to develop and test a multi-component intervention for shy preschoolers, conducted in collaboration with Dr. Ken Rubin in the Department of Human Development.

Responsibilities include project coordination, evidence-based assessment of young children and their parents, coordination with area preschools, treatment development, treatment implementation, and research staff supervision. Ample opportunities for data analysis, manuscript preparation, and grant writing are available and encouraged. Clinical supervision for licensure will be provided.

Qualifications for this position include a Ph.D. in clinical psychology and a strong foundation in evidence-based diagnostic assessment and treatment, as well as excellent organizational, writing and data analysis skills. Applicants who have a background in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and/or the Dyadic Parent-Child Interaction Coding System (DPICS) will be given strongest consideration. A background in behavioral parent training more broadly will also be viewed favorably. Salary will be commensurate with experience.

Please submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, reprints/preprints, and three references to Dr. Andrea Chronis-Tuscano via email (; subject heading: Post-Doc Application. Applications will be reviewed as they are received; however, for best consideration, please submit materials by June 28.
