The Duke ADHD Program in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University School of Medicine invite applications for a post-doctoral fellowship in the area of digital health and data science relating to ADHD. The fellowship, which will be sponsored by a gift from Multi-Health Systems, Inc., will include 2 years of full-time support, including funds for pilot research and travel, to develop new and innovative approaches for assessing and managing ADHD and related conditions in any age group using digital health and/or data science approaches. The specific areas of focus will be open, but could include user-centered design of novel online or app-based assessment and treatment monitoring; the use of digital technology/mobile health applications to provide education and care for underserved populations; the integration of mobile-based digital health information with electronic health records; or the development and UX evaluation of innovative support tools for patients and families with ADHD. The Duke ADHD Program is an internationally recognized clinical and research center that was established in 1989 by C. Keith Conners. Currently, faculty and post-docs at the Duke ADHD Program receive more than $8 million in extramural research funding annually and serve more than 200 new patients in the outpatient clinic. Duke University and the School of Medicine provide a wide range of resources to enhance the experiences of the fellow. These include the Duke Global Digital Health Science Center, mHealth@Duke, the Duke Institute for Health Innovation, the Duke Clinical Research Institute, the Duke Forge, and the +DS Initiative. Interest and demonstrated experience in digital health and/or data science applications to mental health are required for the position. Applicants with a degree in clinical or school psychology and a research focus on ADHD are encouraged to apply, though other doctoral fields and focus areas will be considered, especially those related to data science/computer science. It is expected that the position will begin on or around July 1, 2019. Interested applicants should send a CV; cover letter detailing their experiences in digital health/data science and vision for early career development; and names and contact information for at least 3 references to Scott H.
