Applications due Friday, January 31, 2020

The Emory Healthcare Veterans Program (EHVP) is currently seeking candidates for our two-year postdoctoral psychology fellowship beginning Fall 2020. Postdoctoral fellows will have the opportunity to obtain outstanding training in the practice of clinical psychology under the direction of Drs. Barbara O. Rothbaum and Sheila A.M. Rauch, with in-depth training in providing evidence-based treatment for the invisible wounds of war (including PTSD, MST, TBI, and depression, among others), serving our nation's veteran population, and contributing to the advancement of knowledge in evidence-based care. Postdoctoral fellows train within an interdisciplinary team in traditional outpatient and an innovative intensive outpatient setting, with opportunities to train in individual, group, and family modalities.

Although the majority of fellowships are structured with a primary focus on advanced clinical training, a range of opportunities for involvement in research are available, up to and including dual emphases in clinical and research training. Research interests among EHVP faculty include, but are not limited to: PTSD, anxiety, psychotherapy outcomes, military sexual trauma (MST), exposure therapy, virtual reality-based exposure therapies (VRET), adjunctive pharmacological therapies, neurobiological predictors/outcomes of PTSD treatments, and early intervention/prevention of PTSD. Participation in research may provide opportunities to gain a breadth of practice.

Requirements:

  • PhD/PsyD in Clinical Psychology

  • Experience in clinical research, exposure therapy, treatment of PTSD and associated comorbidities, and working with veterans is desired
