We are seeking a Postdoctoral Associate with a strong foundation in interventions research to begin in Summer 2020. The Postdoctoral Associate will be primarily involved with coordinating a funded NIMH R34 treatment development grant and an administrative suicide supplement (PIs: Dr. Andrea Chronis-Tuscano and Dr. Michael Meinzer). The aims of the R34 parent grant are to develop and test a depression prevention program for inner-city high school students with ADHD in a randomized controlled trial conducted within a school mental health framework. The administrative supplement is focused on studying predictors of suicidal thoughts and behaviors (STBs) and the effectiveness of the intervention at reducing STBs.

This is a one-year position (with the possibility of renewal for a second year). Start date is as early as July 6th 2020, but no later than August 31st, 2020. Responsibilities include conducting diagnostic/behavioral/suicide risk assessments; forming and maintaining relationships with schools/school mental health providers/community stakeholders; training assessors and school mental health providers; recruitment; data management and analysis.

Necessary qualifications include: 1) a doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology, School Psychology, Social Work, or related field (completed or in progress); 2) research experience in the content of clinical research; 3) proficiency with SPSS; 4) excellent organizational, interpersonal and communication skills. Applicants who have a research background in ADHD, interventions, implementation science, depression, and/or suicide as well as clinical experience conducting suicide risk assessments and diagnostic interviews, will be given strongest consideration.

Interested applicants should send their CV, a letter of interest, and information for 3 references to Drs. Andrea Chronis-Tuscano (achronis@umd.edu) and Michael Meinzer (mmeinzer@umd.edu) with the subject line “Adolescent ADHD Postdoctoral Fellow.” Applications will be reviewed as they are received until the position is filled.
