Join Us as a Postdoctoral Researcher
Postdoctoral Research Opportunities
Occasionally, we will be notified of postdoctoral research opportunities at the University of Rochester that align with the research interests of our lab. Brief descriptions of the opportunities currently available are provided below, including notes about whether or not Dr. Glenn is available as a mentor or consultant.
VA Advanced Fellowship in Veteran Mental Health and Suicide Prevention
The VA VISN 2 Center of Excellence for Suicide Prevention and the affiliated University of Rochester Center for the Study and Prevention of Suicide (UR-CSPS) are pleased to announce the availability of postdoctoral fellowship positions for psychologists, physicians and associated health professionals. The two-year program is supported by the VA Advanced Fellowship Program in Mental Illness Research and Treatment.
Program Goal: To prepare the next generation of leaders and innovators in suicide prevention research, education and clinical care. We offer specialized training focused on suicide prevention strategies, with emphasis on at-risk populations including older Veterans; Veterans with depression, PTSD or other mental health disorders; Veterans with substance use disorders and comorbid conditions; and Veterans facing health challenges such as chronic pain and sleep disorders. We also offer unique clinical and research opportunities in crisis response strategies and other brief interventions to address suicide risk. The fellowship is associated with (but not identical to) the UR-CSPS NIMH T32 Research Fellowship in Suicide Prevention. Prospective fellows may apply to both fellowships.
Fellowship Activities: Participants spend approximately 75% time in research and 25% in related clinical activities, work closely with senior research and education mentors, participate in core didactic offerings of the VA Hub Site and UR-CSPS, obtain advanced clinical training in VA sites matched closely to research interests, prepare at least one paper for publication and one national presentation each year, and complete a suicide prevention education project.
Note: This opportunity is not connected to our lab or Dr. Glenn, although it is connected to UR-CSPS.
Deadline: January 5, 2018
