UCF RESTORES, a clinical research center at the University of Central Florida, seeks applicants for a Post-Doctoral Fellow to begin in Summer or Fall 2020. UCF RESTORES is a multidisciplinary translational center dedicated to developing and integrating innovative technological approaches to enhance prevention, intervention, and dissemination initiatives for trauma-related disorders. There are also opportunities to collaborate with members from the University’s Department of Psychology, Institute for Simulation and Training, and School of Medicine.
Interested applicants should have expertise in prevention, intervention, or dissemination science. Preference will be given to individuals who are already working in the areas of stress, trauma, and PTSD. Individuals will be expected to participate in research projects related to the prevention and treatment of PTSD and related trauma disorders. Target populations include veterans, first responders, survivors of sexual trauma, and survivors of mass shootings and natural disasters. Ongoing research initiatives include dissemination of our PTSD treatment program to U.S. military installations and the development of a virtual reality program to treat first responders with PTSD. Applicants for the position must have completed a Ph.D. or PsyD. in clinical or counseling psychology from an APA accredited doctoral program and psychology internship program. Candidates must also demonstrate a record of scholarship. There are sufficient clinical opportunities so that the fellow will accrue the necessary hours for licensure after the first year. There is the possibility of a second year of the fellowship.
Compensation for the twelve-month appointment is competitive and commensurate with experience and qualifications. UCF is classified as a Very High Research Activity (RU/VH) University by the Carnegie Foundation and has the second largest enrollment in the country (approximately 68,000 students).
