Interested individuals are invited for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship position (renewable for a second year) within Community Psychiatry PRIDE (Community Psychiatry PRIDE) at Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, with a start date of Summer 2020.

Community Psychiatry PRIDE is a dissemination and implementation research lab with a mission to address the access to care problem in mental health. We partner with community organizations to improve the lives of youth facing adversity by collaboratively developing, executing, and testing innovative implementation models designed to maximize the uptake, and sustainability of evidence- based mental health strategies.

The post-doctoral fellow will work closely with Drs. Marques and Youn on several D&I projects focused on training and coaching paraprofessionals in the delivery of an evidence-based intervention to address the social emotional needs of at-risk youth. The projects include the collection and analyses of quantitative and qualitative data for program evaluation and research focused on evaluating implementation and clinical outcomes.

The fellowship has a strong emphasis on translational research, and ideal candidates are individuals interested in pursuing an academic career. To support career development in research, fellows will receive protected research time and grant-writing mentorship. Fellows are expected to make significant contributions to the research productivity of the lab, including preparation of manuscripts as well as submitting for extramural funding (for their own research and for the lab), and will have opportunities to pursue independent research and interdisciplinary collaborations across Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. The fellow will be considered for a joint Harvard Medical School appointment (appointment is not guaranteed).

If you have any questions about the position, please contact Dr. Soo Jeong Yoon.
