Full-time Position for a Psychologist-Lifespan School Solutions/Bradley Schools

Posted 7/24/2017
 
We are recruiting for a full-time psychologist to join our Bradley School in Westerly, RI. Bradley Schools serve students whose behavioral health challenges require a level of specialized instruction and intervention that is beyond what their current placements can provide.  We also provide programming to students with developmental challenges, such as autism and or intellectual disabilities, who may have additional behavioral health needs.  The position involves clinical administrative duties (e.g., leading school-based teams, developing and supporting social-emotional learning) and the provision of clinical service (e.g., group therapy, clinical/diagnostic assessments, functional behavioral assessment).   We offer a competitive salary and benefit package.  Applicants should hold a doctoral degree in clinical, counseling, or school psychology, be license-eligible in the State of Rhode Island, and have clinical experience working with children and adolescents in a school or mental health setting.  For additional details or to apply, please contact Dr. Melanie Dubard by email (mdubard@Lifespan.org or phone 401.444.1633).

Research Assistant Position (posted 1/15/17)

I am actively recruiting a research assistant for research focused on the interplay of biomarkers and social (both in person and online social networking) context for adolescents during times of transition. Primary responsibilities will be related to a newly funded R01 investigation, “Understanding the Interplay of Social Context and Physiology on Psychological Outcomes in Trauma-Exposed Adolescents.” The Research Assistant (RA) will also have opportunities for involvement in implementation of another R01 investigation, "Biomarkers, social, and affective predictors of suicidal thoughts and behaviors in adolescents."  The RA will work with PI Nicole Nugent, PhD, with opportunities for exposure to co-investigators in Psychiatry/Psychology, Emergency Medicine, Computer Sciences, and Bioengineering. The position will can begin as soon as possible, likely in September or October. This could be an ideal opportunity for a recent graduate who is looking for experiences to help strengthen a grad school application. Please forward to any strong students you may have or to colleagues who might have ideas.

The research involves in vivo characterization of naturalistic phenomena during the critical first weeks after discharge from either (1) psychiatric hospitalization for suicidal thoughts and behaviors or (2) medical emergency department visit following a traumatic event. Social context is assessed using ecological methods and devices that allow acoustic capture of an individual's social environment and self-reports of experienced affect as well as characterization of online social networking. Follow-up assessments include semi-structured interviews as well as implementation of laboratory procedures involving psychophysiological and visual attention indicators. Results of this investigation will inform a number of intervention approaches including family therapy, EMA-based adjunctive intervention, and pharmacological approaches.
Responsibilities may include preparation and maintenance of study record, complete baseline self-report procedures, complete baseline training (and setup) with the adolescent on the use of the ecological devices, schedule follow-up assessments, drive to participant homes to pick up research devices, implement procedures related to extraction of online social networking behaviors, conduct closely supervised interviews, and implement laboratory procedures that include the use of psychophysiological and eye tracking equipment.  The RA will need to be able to learn REDCap and enter data as well as learn how to implement procedures for setup of the ecological devices. The RA may be responsible for very basic statistical analyses of data and in preparation of data for presentations. Requirements of the position include: a bachelor’s degree; strong organizational and research training and experience for students wishing to pursue graduate studies in psychology or applying to medical school. An ideal candidate will evidence ability/willingness to develop skills with technology and capacity for resourcefulness in troubleshooting technological devices. Successful applicants will be available for some evening and weekend research sessions.
