About Community Psychiatry PRIDE
The Community Psychiatry Program for Research in Implementation and Dissemination of Evidence-Based Treatments (PRIDE) is a dissemination and implementation research lab with a mission to address the access to care problem in mental health. We partner with community organizations to improve the lives of youth facing adversity by collaboratively developing, executing, and testing innovative implementation models designed to maximize the uptake, and sustainability of evidence-based mental health strategies.
About the Fellowship
Community Psychiatry PRIDE is currently accepting applications for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship position (renewable for a second year).
Our postdoctoral fellows will work closely with Soo Jeong Youn, PhD, and Luana Marques, PhD, on several dissemination and implementation projects focused on training and coaching paraprofessionals in the delivery of an evidence-based intervention to address the social emotional needs of at-risk youth. The projects include the collection and analyses of quantitative and qualitative data for program evaluation and research focused on evaluating implementation and clinical outcomes.
The fellowship has a strong emphasis on translational research, and ideal candidates are individuals interested in pursuing an academic career. To support career development in research, fellows will receive protected research time and grant-writing mentorship. Fellows are expected to make significant contributions to the research productivity of the lab, including preparation of manuscripts as well as submitting for extramural funding (for their own research and for the lab), and will have opportunities to pursue independent research and interdisciplinary collaborations across Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
Fellows are considered for a joint Harvard Medical School appointment (appointment is not guaranteed).
Number of positions: 1
Fellowship begins: July of each year
How to Apply
The ideal candidate will have a PhD or equivalent in psychology, public health or related disciplines with a strong background in qualitative and quantitative analytical methods. Candidates with training in implementation science and cognitive behavioral therapy are strongly encouraged to apply.
Interested applicants should submit the following:
- Letter of interest (addressed to Drs. Soo Jeong Youn and Luana Marques)
- Curriculum vitae
- List of three references
- Writing sample (preferably a published manuscript)
Send applications materials to: Dr. Soo Jeong Youn, Director of Evaluation (firstname.lastname@example.org)
