Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Position in Charleston, S.C.

The National Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center (NCVC) at the Medical University of South Carolina invites applications for its NIMH-funded post-doctoral research training program. At least one, and perhaps as many as three openings are anticipated in the summer/fall of 2002.

The NCVC offers post-doctoral fellowship training for qualified mental health professionals. The fellowship is funded by a training grant from the National Institute of Mental Health, and is open to entry level and experienced professionals who want to develop research and clinical expertise in understanding violent crime and other forms of civilian trauma. The fellowship runs for one year with an opportunity for a second year renewal. Stipend levels are based on NIMH requirements. Applicants should possess a strong commitment to the scientist-practitioner model. Applicants should hold a doctoral degree in psychology, social work, psychiatry or a similar field.

The NCVC fellowship training program is designed to produce professionals skilled in a variety of research and clinical strategies to investigate the psychosocial impact of traumatic events upon adults and children. The program includes advanced clinical training in cognitive-behavioral and family based techniques. Advanced research training focuses on sexual assault, child abuse, domestic violence, other violent crimes, natural disaster, urban violence, and other forms of civilian trauma. The prevention, development, and resolution of posttraumatic stress disorder, other anxiety disorders, depression, substance abuse, and other post-trauma adaptations are examined.

Program activities include a strong preceptor system, seminars, clinical intervention with adults, children, and families, participation in existing funded research projects (e.g., family violence, child abuse, sexual assault and other forms of violent crime, natural disasters, urban violence), and the development of new research projects. The NCVC faculty includes 10 doctoral level professionals. All faculty members are energetic and enthusiastic participants in the fellowship training program. The common interest of the faculty in traumatic stress provide a basis for building strong research and clinical programs. However, each faculty member also maintains unique interests, particularly in the development of research programs. All faculty welcome collaboration from post-doctoral colleagues within the context of their research activities.

The NCVC is a division of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, South Carolina. The affiliation with a strong academic department complements the strong post-doctoral training available through the NCVC fellowship. Charleston is a lovely and historic ocean-side city with wonderful things to do and see. Beaches, boating, fishing, golf, and other outdoor amenities combine with a strong value of historic and environmental preservation and a relatively low cost of living to produce a wonderful place to live and work.

Applications must include: a) letter of interest from applicant outlining the basis of his or her interest in the fellowship and goals for advanced training in traumatic stress research; b) recent cv; c) at least three letters of recommendation; and d) any p/reprints you feel would help to demonstrate your research proficiency.
