McLean Hospital’s Division of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry has announced the creation of 3 full-time two-year post-doctoral fellowships designed to launch the clinical research careers of PhD and/or MDs focusing on child, adolescent, and young adult mental health. These fellowships will provide 80% protected time for research and 20% time for relevant clinical work, designed to allow fellows to design and submit K and related grants while gaining valuable clinical skills from McLean’s world experts in clinical care and research.
Fellows’ clinical placement, based on their interests and prior experience, will occur at one of the following:
Key research interests include brain, behavior, family, and gene mechanisms underlying developmental psychopathology, “big data”/electronic health records or digital phenotyping, and treatment. Fellows’ research activity will involve combinations of data/mentorship from their clinical placement, Child Division research programs including the PediMIND program, and leading researchers from McLean’s other six divisions.
Psychology candidates must have a doctoral degree in clinical psychology/child psychology from an APA-accredited program and have completed an APA-accredited internship. Physician candidates must have completed an accredited child/adolescent psychiatry fellowship.
Interested applicants should send their curriculum vitae and cover letter via email to Daniel Dickstein MD (email@example.com). Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the positions are filled.
PediMIND clinical research assistants are involved in all aspects of the lab's function, and their responsibilities include:
Mentorship is very important in the PediMIND Program, with 100% of all prior PediMIND clinical research assistants matriculating to graduate or medical school.
The PediMIND Program typically begins accepting applications for new clinical research assistants in December. Check back here for more information!
