Post-Doctoral Fellowship/Co-Director


We are seeking a Post-Doctoral Fellow (official payroll title will be Post-Doctoral Associate) with a strong foundation in evidence-based assessment and treatment. The Post-Doctoral Fellow will primarily serve in the role of Co-Director of the SUCCEEDS College ADHD Clinic at the University of Maryland. The SUCCEEDS intervention approach involves motivational interviewing, behavioral activation, organizational skills training, and cognitive-behavioral therapy delivered in both a group and individual coaching format. The mission of the SUCCEEDS Clinic is three-fold: clinical, research, and training. More information about SUCCEEDS can be found at: https://www.umdadhd.org/succeeds/.

 

Responsibilities involve direct assessment and treatment of undergraduate students with ADHD; training and co-supervising a team of graduate students in the assessment and intervention protocols; building and maintaining relationships with offices around the university that serve undergraduate students; presenting workshops about SUCCEEDS around campus, to parents, and in the community to raise awareness about the clinic; maintaining the IRB and research database; handling all administrative aspects of the program, including scheduling, billing, and preparing reports to document SUCCEEDS activities each semester. Given the research mission of SUCCEEDS, the post-doc also will  ideally be involved in writing/collaborating on foundation and federal funding applications, co-mentoring graduate student research within the context of the clinic, and contributing to the presentation and publication of work conducted in the clinic.

 

For interested candidates, there are ample opportunities to work on a variety of research projects relevant to the developmental course and treatment of ADHD, including several archival datasets from which the post-doc can present and publish findings. Opportunities to teach undergraduate and/or graduate courses will also be offered.

 

Qualifications for this position include a Ph.D. in clinical, school or counseling psychology and a strong foundation in evidence-based diagnostic assessment and treatment, as well as excellent social, organizational, and oral/written communication skills. For those interested in research, experience with longitudinal data analysis is a plus. Applicants who have a background in ADHD, alcohol/substance abuse, behavioral activation, organizational skills training, and/or motivational interviewing will be given strongest consideration. Clinical supervision for licensure will be provided. This position is contingent upon approval of the chair.

 

Please submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae and three letters of recommendation to Dr. Andrea Chronis-Tuscano via email (achronis@umd.edu; subject heading: SUCCEEDS Post-DocApplication). Applications will be reviewed as they are received until the position is filled. Email inquiries are welcome.  Start date in Summer 2019.
