The Psychology Department and I.M.P.A.C.T. (Investigating Methods to Prevent, Assess, and Care for Trauma) Lab at Ryerson University invites applications for three 2-year postdoctoral fellowships in the following areas:
(1) eHealth (all content areas open, but expertise in PTSD, substance use, intimate relationships or emotion dysregulation preferable);
(2) Longitudinal Analyses of Trauma Recovery and
(3) Dissemination/Implementation of Psychotherapy.
The fellowship in eHealth is in collaboration with CBT Associates, who are pioneering a therapist-assisted digital platform delivering Cognitive-Behavorial Therapy through a virtual care model. This Fellow will gain expertise in the development of online treatment content, delivery of e-facilitated psychotherapy, evaluation of such treatment, and supervision of e-coaches. The Fellowship in longitudinal analyses of trauma recovery will provide further expertise in longitudinal analyses (prior experience required) and its application to naturalistic and interventional studies of trauma recovery. Finally, the fellowship in dissemination/implementation studies offers training in implementation studies of psychotherapy, with a specific focus on disseminating trauma-focused treatments for PTSD.
Fellows in these positions will ideally begin September 1, 2017. Candidates who have not yet completed their PhD but expect completion in the near term may be considered. Successful candidates will have evidence of prior experience in the fellowship areas, scholarly productivity, a solid foundation in cognitive-behavioural therapy (for the eHealth and dissemination/implementation fellowships) and value collegiality and collaboration.
Applicants should submit a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, any relevant research publications, and the names of 3 individuals who could be contacted for reference letters. Only those candidates selected for the short-list of consideration will be contacted for letters.
Confidential inquiries and application materials can be directed to Dr. Candice Monson (Candice.Monson@Psych.Ryerson.ca). Review of applications will begin March 1, 2017, and will continue until the positions are filled.
Ryerson University has an employment equity program and encourages applications from all qualified individuals, including Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities and women. Members of designated groups are encouraged to self-identify. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
