The University of Iowa Stead Family Department of Pediatrics is recruiting one Postdoctoral Fellow in Pediatric Psychology for the 2024-2025 academic year. The overall goal of this fellowship is to prepare the next generation of scientist-practitioners for careers in academic research and clinical applications.

Currently, we are offering a fellowship focused on either pediatric health psychology services or diagnostic assessment with a focus on neuropsychology. The fellow will spend about 70% of their time in clinical activities and will have opportunities for research and structured educational activities as well. Depending on the fellowship focus, the fellow will spend clinical time embedded in outpatient specialty clinics working with children and adolescents with various health conditions including diabetes, cystic fibrosis, inflammatory bowel disease, and chronic pain and will collaborate with various medical specialties or in outpatient diagnostic clinics (LD/ADHD Clinic and Neuropsychology Clinic). Opportunities for inpatient consultation/liaison service are also available. 

The successful applicant will join the Division of Pediatric Psychology within the Stead Family Department of Pediatrics. Our psychologists have specialties in three distinct areas: Neuropsychology, Chronic Health, and Behavioral Psychology. A one-year postdoctoral fellowship position is available for candidates who will have obtained their Ph.D. in clinical, counseling, or school psychology and completed an APA/APPIC approved internship prior to the start date of September 1, 2024. The fellow must also obtain a provisional license to practice in Iowa by the start date. 

Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, a deidentified clinical diagnostic report (interview only or testing is acceptable), and a letter of intent describing clinical and research interests. Applications are being accepted immediately and we hope to fill the position as soon as possible. Virtual interviews will be extended to competitive applicants. 

The stipend is commensurate with NIH guidelines and includes health benefits, paid vacation and sick leave, and time to attend national conferences. Iowa City is an attractive, family-friendly, college town with abundant local and world-class cultural, theatrical, and musical events, top-ranked schools, and outdoor recreational attractions. The Iowa City area is often ranked as one of the most livable communities in the nation (Livability.com).
