Save job

The MGH Lurie Center for Autism seeks up to two full-time, one-year postdoctoral fellowship candidates in neuropsychological assessment and treatment of children, adolescents, and adults with autism spectrum disorder and other neurodevelopmental disabilities. The fellowship is a joint position through the MGH Lurie Center for Autism and Aspire programs in Lexington, Massachusetts. Postdoctoral fellows hold clinical fellow appointments at the Massachusetts General Hospital for Children – Lurie Center and Harvard Medical School.

 

The Lurie Center is a multidisciplinary program designed to evaluate and treat children, adolescents, and adults—providing expertise in neurology, developmental pediatrics, gastroenterology, psychiatry, psychology, psychopharmacology, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech-language pathology. MGH Aspire helps children, teens, and adults with high cognitive autism spectrum disorder or a related social profile make social connections and develop independence. Interventions include intensive camp programs, social groups, internship programs and consultation and training.

 

Postdoctoral fellows will work closely with a multidisciplinary team to complete diagnostic and neuropsychological assessments, under the supervision of a licensed clinical psychologist. They will also have the opportunity to provide social skills programming, outpatient therapy, school consultation and consultation to patients and their families. All postdoctoral fellows will participate in a variety of training and supervision experiences including: weekly supervision, seminars, rounds, and other didactic experiences available at the Lurie Center and MGH. Opportunities for research and school consultation are also available. Strong neuropsychological testing experience and prior training in the assessment of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (including the ADOS) are preferred.

 

Fellowship start date is scheduled for September 1, 2019 (may be negotiable). Applicants must have a PhD/PsyD in Clinical Psychology. Application requires submission of a curriculum vitae, three recommendation letters, two sample assessment reports, and one therapeutic treatment plan. Please address correspondence to Dr. Lisa Nowinski at the Lurie Center, 1 Maguire Road, Lexington, MA 02421. To learn about our Postdoctoral Fellowship, please email us at LurieCenter@partners.org. We are now accepting applications for our 2019-20 fellowship with interviews beginning in January 2019.
