Postdoctoral Fellowship at UC Davis CAARE Center (posted 1/28/17)

 
We are seeking applications for a postdoctoral fellow position at the CAARE Diagnostic and Treatment Center within the UC Davis Health System for the 2017-18 training year. The CAARE Center provides services to children, adolescents, and families in Sacramento, California who have been exposed to trauma, providing culturally informed, evidence-based, developmentally appropriate services. The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to receive training in a short-term dyadic intervention for parents and children (PC-CARE), provide services to young children in new foster placements, observe and potentially participate in training of other service providers, participate in program development and outreach activities, and collaborate on ongoing research activities as part of a service provision grant funded through the National Child Traumatic Stress Network. Additional opportunities to provide services to homeless families and to conduct psychological evaluations may be available.
 
 
 
The purpose of the NCTSN grant is to support newly placed foster children’s transition to their new home. Treatment providers conduct trauma and developmental screenings of 1 – 5 year old foster children just entering foster care and provide PC-CARE—a 6-week behaviorally-oriented, skills-based parenting intervention. Trauma screenings of foster children entering care and teaching foster parents about trauma symptoms is hypothesized to help connect traumatized children to mental health services more quickly. Teaching and coaching foster parents positive parenting skills as they play with the child, is hypothesized to support the developing relationship between the caregiver and child, and provide caregivers strategies for effective behavior management, thus promoting placement stability.

2 Postdoctoral Fellowships, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, Los Angeles & University of California, San Diego (posted 9/29/16, start-date 7/1/17)

Applications are invited for two postdoctoral fellowship positions under the direction of Dr. Anna Lau in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California, Los Angeles and Dr. Lauren Brookman-Frazee in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego and the Child & Adolescent Services Research Center (CASRC). Drs. Lau and Brookman-Frazee are PIs on a multi-site NIMH-Funded study entitled, “Sustainment of Multiple EBP’s Fiscally Mandated in Children’s MH Services” (known locally as “4KEEPS: Knowledge Exchange on Evidence-based Practice Sustainment” http://4keeps.psych.ucla.edu). The purpose of this observational study is to characterize implementation sustainment and identify organizational and therapist characteristics that predict sustainment of multiple practices being implemented within a fiscal mandate in the nation’s largest public mental health system.
 
The UCSD and UCLA fellows will work closely together with the investigators to analyze quantitative data from large scale surveys, administrative claims, observational coding of therapist delivery of EBP strategies, and qualitative data from key informant interviews. In this phase of the study, there will be ample opportunities for publications, conference presentations and collaboration on grant proposals. Additionally, fellows will assist in a community partnered process to translate findings. Fellows will receive joint mentoring from the PIs and study investigators, have access to broader training opportunities across both sites, support for conference travel, and obtain supervised professional experience hours for Psychologist licensure.
 
Strong applicants will have experience in community implementation of evidence-based practices, multi-level modeling, mixed qualitative and quantitative methods and demonstrate excellent interpersonal and communication skills. Appointments will be made for one year, with a second year re-appointment expected based on review of the fellow’s progress. We anticipate that the fellowship will be available July 1, 2017, although the start date is flexible. The current stipend for first year fellows is commensurate with the standard National Institutes of Health rate and is eligible for benefits.
 
Interested applicants should submit (1) a letter of interest; (2) CV; (3) reprints of three publications or other scholarly writing; and (4) three letters of recommendation to Dr. Lau (alau@psych.ucla.edu) and Dr. Brookman-Frazee (lbrookman@ucsd.edu).
