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

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Suicide Prevention Research
The University of Rochester Center for the Study and Prevention of Suicide (UR/CSPS) is pleased to announce the availability of positions for postdoctoral training in suicide prevention research. Now in its 17th year, the UR/CSPS postdoctoral training program is supported by an institutional National Research Service Award training grant from NIMH (Yeates Conwell, MD, Program Director; Kim Van Orden, PhD, Assistant Director). It provides up to three years of stipend support and related benefits for early career investigators committed to careers in suicide prevention research. Each fellow works closely with a primary mentor, takes courses and participates in a diverse array of CSPS research and training activities. A strength of the UR/CSPS fellowship is the provision of intensive mentorship in grant writing, study design, and data analysis from a core of faculty dedicated to suicide prevention.
Mentors and consultants are available from a wide range of experts both at UR and affiliated faculty of the UR/CSPS CDC-funded Injury Control Research Center on Suicide (ICRC-S; http://suicideprevention-icrc-s.org/who-we-are-new) and the VA VISN 2 Center of Excellence for Suicide Prevention (http://www.mirecc.va.gov/suicideprevention/).
The emphasis of UR/CSPS research is on the development and testing of interventions across the full spectrum of approaches to suicide prevention – universal, selective, and indicated – and in a variety of vulnerable groups including Veterans, adolescents and older adults, victims of violence, and individuals faced with economic, legal, and housing difficulties. Faculty and fellows are currently engaged in projects that target populations across the life course.
Note: Dr. Glenn is a member of the training faculty for this program and would be available as a mentor or consultant.
Deadline: Rolling, but preferred deadline is January, 2018
