Pediatric Psychology Faculty Position-Hematology/Oncology Division of Pediatric Psychology

Pediatric Psychology Faculty Position: Hematology/Oncology
Division of Pediatric Psychology, Department of Pediatrics
C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, Michigan Medicine
Ann Arbor, Michigan


The Division of Pediatric Psychology and Division of Hematology/Oncology at Michigan Medicine invites applications for a pediatric psychology faculty appointment within the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Michigan Medical School. Michigan Medicine is located in Ann Arbor, a vibrant and diverse community consistently rated as one of the best places to live in the United States.


The Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Division has an outstanding tradition of achievement in patient care and research in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology and Blood and Marrow Transplantation. We are embarking on a long-term plan to increase psychosocial support and services for children, adolescents, and families within the Hematology/Oncology and BMT programs. The administrative home of the successful candidate would be the Division of Pediatric Psychology, which is comprised of 17 faculty who are fully integrated into pediatric subspecialty areas, and have close and supportive working relationships with both community pediatricians and hospital-based physician specialists. Supervision and training for pediatric psychology postdoctoral fellows, interns, advanced practicum students, pediatric house officers, and medical students is expected. This position is largely clinical in nature, but opportunities will be available to engage in research/scholarly activity that aligns with the overall objectives and activities of the Division of Pediatric Psychology, Division of Hematology-Oncology, the Department of Pediatrics, and the Michigan Medicine Rogel Cancer Center.


Applicants should possess a doctoral degree from an APA/CPA-accredited program and internship, postdoctoral training in pediatric psychology, and be licensed or license-eligible as a Psychologist in the state of Michigan. Successful applicants will have clinical experience working with children, adolescents, and families in one or more oncology, hematology, or BMT settings. Experience in program development, implementation, and clinical research is also desired. Faculty rank and compensation will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.


Michigan Medicine conducts background screening and pre-employment drug testing on job candidates upon acceptance of a contingent job offer and may use a third party administrator to conduct background screening. Background screenings are performed in compliance with the Fair Credit Report Act.


Michigan Medicine seeks to recruit and retain a diverse workforce as a reflection of our commitment to serve the diverse people of Michigan and to maintain the excellence of the University. We welcome applications from anyone who would bring additional dimensions to the University’s research, teaching, and clinical mission, including women, members of minority groups, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities. The Department Pediatrics, like the University of Michigan as a whole, is committed to a policy of nondiscrimination and equal opportunity for all persons and will not discriminate against any individual because of race, color, national origin, age, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, religion, height, weight, or veteran status. The University of Michigan is an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.


The review process will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Applicants should send a CV and letter of interest to Emily Fredericks, PhD, Director, Division of Pediatric Psychology (emfred@med.umich.edu).
