Postdoctoral Fellowship in Autism and Developmental Disabilities



Location: Vanderbilt Kennedy Center’s Treatment and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders (TRIAD) and Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC), Nashville, Tennessee

 


Position: 2019-2020 Postdoctoral Clinical Fellowship in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 1 year with the possibility of a second year extension based on fellow’s interest and training needs


 

Description:  
The Vanderbilt Kennedy Center (VKC) for Research on Human Development and the Department of Pediatrics in the VUMC Division of Developmental Medicine is accepting applications for a clinical psychology postdoctoral fellowship in the area of autism and related developmental disabilities. The mission of the VKC is to facilitate discoveries and best practices that make positive differences in the lives of persons with developmental disabilities and their families. The Vanderbilt Kennedy Center provides an exceptional research and training environment, reflecting synergy across our NICHD-supported Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (IDDRC), MCHB-supported Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) grant, University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD), and programs within TRIAD.

 


The fellowship is housed within TRIAD, the hub for campus-wide interdisciplinary work in autism research, service, outreach, and training (http://triad.vumc.org). Fellowship activities include diagnostic evaluations of children with suspected ASD through research projects and our hospital-based developmental clinic, with the goal of obtaining ADOS-2 research reliability. In collaboration with our TRIAD Professional Development, Training, and Outreach Team, fellows will also develop and deliver training modules to parents, providers, and school personnel; participate in school-based consultation and support; and develop inclusive activities and supports with community partners. Additionally, fellows may provide short-term evidence-based parent-mediated interventions through our early intervention program and other specialty clinics. This includes training in behavioral pediatrics and integrated care, where fellows can gain experience in early detection of ASD in primary care clinics as well as providing consultation and treatment for a broader range of presenting concerns.

 


As an integral part of the training year, the VKC/TRIAD fellow will serve as a long-term trainee under our Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) program (http://vkc.mc.vanderbilt.edu/vkc/lend/). This includes participation in at least 300 hours of activities that include online seminars, leadership classes, and other requirements during the academic year. 

 


This postdoctoral clinical fellowship is a one-year paid position with fringe benefits, commencing late August or early September of 2019. Salary is commensurate with NRSA postdoctoral beginning stipend levels. Previous clinical training and experience in working with children with autism spectrum disorders are required, as is completion of an APA-accredited PhD/PsyD clinical or school psychology doctoral program and internship. Dissertation defense and other graduation requirements must be completed prior to start date. A provisional psychology license in TN will be required, which includes passing a background check and meeting specific training requirements (see https://publications.tnsosfiles.com/rules/1180/1180-02.20140703.pdf). Supervision and other supports toward licensure will be provided.

 


Application Process: Applications should include: a current curriculum vita, a letter describing clinical interests and experience, and recommendation letters from two references who have worked with the applicant in different contexts. Review of applications will begin immediately.



Vanderbilt University Medical Center is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer with a strong institutional commitment to diversity in all areas. Applicants must be United States citizens due to grant funding requirements.
