We are seeking an early career scientist interested in pursuing postdoctoral training focused on family based behavioral interventions for adolescents. Postdoc will participate in two active randomized clinical trials, one targeting adolescent substance use and one targeting adolescent medical adherence among teens with poorly controlled type 1 diabetes. Both involve cognitive-behavior therapy, contingency management, and parenting interventions.
Research opportunities for postdocs include a focus on developmental processes in adolescence and psychopathology, utilizing the repeated measures data collected in the clinical trials. Constructs assessed include decision-making (delay discounting), peer relations, parenting, and parent psychopathology. Postdocs will have opportunities to develop new research projects in related areas, including the use of brain imaging techniques. Those seeking clinical licensure have an option to provide clinical care under supervision.
Responsibilities will include coordinating the randomized clinical trials, including supervision of bachelor’s and master’s level research assistants, data management and analysis, and manuscript preparation. Postdocs will have the opportunity to be the lead author on manuscripts, and to participate in preparation of grant applications. Overall, the position provides excellent preparation for an academic/scientific career.
