Weill Cornell Medical College, New York Presbyterian Hospital, White Plains, NY, USA - 1 fellowship in clinical neuropsychology

POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP IN CLINICAL NEUROPSYCHOLOGY Due to unanticipated funding, the Department of Psychiatry of Weill Cornell Medical College at NewYork–Presbyterian Hospital’s campus in White Plains, NY is pleased to announce that we are accepting applications for one one-year renewable postdoctoral residency in Clinical Neuropsychology. This residency is designed to provide advanced training in Clinical Neuropsychology in the spirit of the Houston Conference.

This position is based in the Outpatient Department that treats children, adolescents, adults and families presenting with a range of psychiatric disorders and, not infrequently, co-morbid neurological conditions. Neuropsychological referrals across the lifespan may come from inpatient and outpatient clinicians across all programs on campus; referrals of children and adolescents predominate. Many are direct referrals from the community.

The resident’s experience combines clinical, didactic, and research activities, with opportunity for teaching and supervision based upon one’s skill set. There is also provision for the resident to do initial psychiatric evaluations and provide individual, group or family interventions for children and adolescents. In one of nine postdoctoral Psychology tracks, the clinical neuropsychology resident participates in the diverse practice of psychology in a university medical center. Didactics may include neuropsychological assessment seminars, departmental and Psychology division grand rounds, specialized training in CBT, DBT, or Transference Focused Psychotherapy (TFP), as well as seminars tailored for advanced training in child-adolescent and geriatric Psychiatry. Under the mentorship and supervision of licensed psychologists, the resident can tailor the program to meet his/her career goals. 

Applicants must have the doctoral degree in psychology or neuropsychology from an APA- accredited program. Training and experience in the assessment of children and adolescents is required; training and experience in the evaluation of adults is desired, but not essential. Also, applicants must have submitted the materials required to obtain the limited permit issued by the New York State Department of Education before their start date. Salary is competitive with full health benefits and vacation package included.

Application Deadline: Ongoing until position is filled.
Anticipated Start Date: August 31, 2011
Interested applicants should send a letter of intent, current curriculum vitae, three letters of reference and at least one sample report to:
