Parent-Child Interaction Therapy Postdoctoral Fellowship, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine (posted 12/9/16)
One to two full-time Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) postdoctoral fellowships positions at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine are available for the 2017-2018 training year. The postdoctoral fellows will be primarily located at the Mailman Center for Child Development located in Miami, FL. Qualifications for this position include the completion of an APA-approved internship in child clinical psychology. Preference for the position(s) will be given to individuals with a clinical training background in PCIT and/or other evidence-based behavior parent training programs.
Approximately 50% of the postdoctoral fellows’ effort is devoted to conducting PCIT services with families. While the UM PCIT program or PCIT305 primarily serves young children with disruptive behavior disorders, our program also serves children with co-occurring speech delays; autism spectrum disorders; intellectual disabilities; cochlear implants or hearing loss; genetic disorders; and/or histories of child maltreatment.
Postdoctoral fellows’ effort related to clinical service varies based on their level of interest in research. The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to join one or more of PCIT305’s multiple ongoing research studies. Given that PCIT305 serves approximately 100 families per year, opportunities for independent research exists as well.
Current research activities include the following:
- The evaluation of the additive benefit of Pocket PCIT: CDI (iBook overview video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axqxd20dOcs) beyond traditional PCIT services. (Pocket PCIT: PDI is currently in production)
- The evaluation of natural helpers/community health workers to increase engagement of urban, Hispanic families in PCIT
- The feasibility of PCIT as a dependency reunification maintenance intervention for children returning to parents’ care
- A comparison of PCIT treatment processes and outcomes between families with children with ASD and families with children who are typically developing.
- The feasibility of a continuum of care model of PCIT (i.e., Primary Care PCIT, Selective Prevention PCIT, Standard PCIT, internet-delivered PCIT)
Postdoctoral fellows will also have the opportunity for gaining supervision and training experience dependent upon their prior PCIT training and certification. Dr. Jent, a PCIT International Level II Trainer views the postdoctoral training year as an excellent opportunity for certified PCIT therapists to receive the training experience and competencies required to become a Level I Trainer. If postdoctoral fellows do not have prior PCIT experience or are not certified, the focus of the postdoctoral training year will be ensuring that the postdoctoral fellow receives the training and case experience necessary to meet the competencies required for becoming a certified PCIT therapist.

Open-Rank Faculty Positions, Clinical Science Program, Department of Psychology, Florida International University, Miami (posted 10/26/16, deadline 11/14/16)
The Department of Psychology at Florida International University (FIU) is searching for one Open-Rank position in quantitative psychology, one Open-Rank Tenure Track position in the Child and Adolescent Clinical Science program, and two non-tenure track full-time instructor positions. Mid-rank and senior candidates for the open-rank tenure track positions must have a strong record of publications and substantial active federal grant funding. Junior candidates for the tenure track positions must have a demonstrated evidence of or very strong potential for extramural funding and a solid track record of scholarship in refereed journals.
The successful candidate in quantitative methods will have a Ph.D. in quantitative psychology, educational measurement, applied statistics, or similar. We are particularly interested in candidates with evidence of graduate teaching ability and previous collaborations with funded researchers. The expectation is that the successful candidate will teach advanced doctoral-level statistics courses in the Psychology department and will actively collaborate with the current faculty in the department, particularly those who have federal funding and are in need of statistical support. The department currently has one full-time quantitative faculty member, three additional faculty members who are involved in graduate training in statistical methods and a quantitative postdoctoral associate. Desired areas of expertise include psychological measurement, modern missing data techniques, new methods in clinical trials, and advanced modeling, although strong candidates with any background in quantitative methods will be considered.
The preferred area of specialization for the clinical science position is autism spectrum or other developmental disorders, although other areas in clinical child and adolescence are also encouraged to apply, as additional TT lines may become available in the near future, including lines examining interventions, mechanisms of disorder, and outcomes (e.g., cognitive neuroscience, developmental trajectories). For researchers in the area of autism who are interested in studying and treating not only children but also individuals transitioning to college or young adulthood, the possibility exists of a recurring state endowment. The successful candidate will join 13 current clinical tenure-track faculty and five research/clinical faculty and 7 developmental faculty with research interests that include but are not limited to risk for adverse outcomes, longitudinal evaluations, prevention/intervention with and/or mechanisms of childhood or adolescent internalizing, externalizing, and learning disorders, and adolescent substance use. The Clinical Science program is closely affiliated with the Center for Children and Families (CCF), an interdisciplinary Center that focuses on research, education, and service, with strong connections to the community (e.g., The Children’s Trust) and the Miami-Dade County Public Schools, the fourth largest District in the nation. In addition, the CCF has as an active, large on-campus mental health clinic for children and adolescents with a well-established and large staff supportive of evidence-based practice and clinical research and serving more than 3000 families annually in school-year and summer settings and with more than $18M in research funding in 2016.
The ideal tenure track candidates would complement the existing funded faculty in Clinical Science, Developmental Science, Legal Psychology, Industrial/Organizational, or Cognitive Neuroscience doctoral programs. Collaborative research is emphasized in the Department, and many faculty share investigator status on grants. For example, all clinical science faculty members have funded grants focused on child and adolescent mental health. Faculty in Developmental Science and Cognitive Neuroscience employ a variety of technologies and populations to study typical development and developmental psychopathology, executive function, emotions, language, social development, learning and memory, and the brain bases thereof. Eleven of our tenure-track faculty, including nine junior faculty, have received career awards from various national associations/agencies.
The two instructor positions are for 9-month full-time, non-tenure track teaching faculty. Instructor positions are in-unit faculty positions that are benefits eligible and eligible for promotion opportunities that mirror those of tenure-track faculty. Teaching assignments will have an emphasis on both hybrid (i.e., blended) and online undergraduate instruction in one or more of the following areas: Introductory Psychology and Psychological Research Methods/Statistical Analysis, with additional upper-level undergraduate courses in clinical, developmental, cognitive neuroscience, and social Psychology, based upon the candidate's area of teaching specialization. Candidates will also be expected to perform departmental service as full-time members of the department’s faculty. Preference will be given to individuals with demonstrated history in active and collaborative learning and online or hybrid instruction and course development. FIU has more than 50,000 undergraduates and is a leader in pedagogical reform efforts and is focused on improving the quality of undergraduate instruction, particularly in gateway undergraduate courses that affect student success as measured by retention and on-time graduation. FIU is the recipient of funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) through a partnership between the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) and the Coalition of Urban Serving Universities (USU) to focus on transformational change in instruction. A Ph.D. in psychology, or a closely related discipline, is required.
The department has 38 tenure-track faculty, 9 instructors, and 5 research/clinical faculty, more than 150 graduate students spread across five doctoral specialty programs and a mental health counseling masters program, 9 full-time undergraduate advisors, and 4300+ undergraduate majors. The department is young and vibrant, with 32 new hires in the past 5 years, the vast majority being assistant professors, but with well-established and well-funded senior faculty in each area. Currently, 22 department faculty hold more than $55 million in grants from federal agencies (e.g., NIMH, NICHD, NIDA, NIAAA, IES, NSF, DoJ).
Qualified candidates will apply at facultycareers.fiu.edu to job numbers 512490 (Quantitative), 512488 (Clinical), or 512487 (Instructors). Applicants are also requested to send an electronic copy of their materials and 4 letters of recommendation (sent by recommenders) to (as appropriate) the Chair of the Clinical Search Committee, Daniel Bagner, Ph.D. (firstname.lastname@example.org), the Chair of the Quantitative Search Committee, Paulo Graziano, Ph.D. (email@example.com)or Kristin Nichols-Lopez, Ph.D. (firstname.lastname@example.org), Chair of the Instructor Search Committee. To receive full consideration, applications and required materials should be received by November 14, 2016. Applications will continue to be accepted and review will continue until positions are filled.
