The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University School of Medicine is seeking to fill four full-time positions in our growing Addiction Medicine Program, as part of a plan to develop a youth addiction service. The strategic expansion of our Addiction Medicine Program is supported by generous philanthropic funding from the Taube Foundation. The chosen candidates will be appointed in the Medical Center Line or the Clinician Educator Line. Rank and salary will be commensurate with experience. Programmatic areas of need are as follows:
*Director of the Youth Addiction Medicine Program. This position will be responsible for leadership and oversight of the clinical, research, and training mission of the young addiction service program. This appointment may be to the Clinician Educator line, or to the Medical Center Line if the ed faculty member has an established record of independent scholarship that is expected to continue going forward.
*Clinician Scientist. This position will be a clinician scientist with an independent scholarly research portfolio in the area of addiction medicine in relation to adolescents and young adults, and clinical and teaching expertise in child psychiatry or psychology.
*Two Clinician Educators. These Clinician Educators will provide expert clinical care and teaching of child and adolescent psychiatry and psychology trainees. One will be focused upon programmatic clinic needs, while the other will primarily build addiction medicine networks and collaborations.
Our existing program in Addiction Medicine consists of an ambulatory outpatient dual diagnosis clinic, including medication assisted treatment, and individual, and group psychotherapy. The Department collaborates with our partners in clinics in other departments (Pain and Primary Care) to best serve the needs of our patients. Our Addiction Medicine Fellowship Training Program is approved by the American Board of Addiction Medicine and ACGME accreditation is in process. We train two fellows per year from diverse specialties, and the program will continue to expand.

Preference will be given to psychologist applicants who have completed the EPPP and are currently licensed in the state of California. Experience treating adolescents and young adults is particularly desired. Ideally, the chosen candidates would have experience in working in multidisciplinary clinical care services for patients with substance use disorders. These positions require skills and experience in clinical care and teaching.
