The CARES Center thrives on the invaluable efforts of students, interns, postgraduate scholars, and staff. View available job listings below or reach out to us to learn more about joining our team: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The UCLA Center for Child Anxiety Resilience Education and Support is accepting applications for a postgraduate fellowship in youth anxiety prevention and early intervention. The fellow will help identify best-practices, develop and pilot clinic- and community-based scalable interventions, and support clinical and translational research to support broad program dissemination and implementation.
UCLA CARES is a multidisciplinary center dedicated to supporting the development of resilient, emotionally healthy children, particularly among populations disproportionately impacted by stress and trauma. We offer a variety of innovative web-based, social media, and live educational and training programs to help clinicians, researchers, school staff, and parents recognize the early signs of childhood anxiety and support families in accessing resources to build family strengths and resilience.
Under the supervision of John Piacentini, Ph.D., CARES Director, or another licensed program psychologist, the fellow will have access to a broad range of didactic and experiential activities, as part of a robust training and professional development program in the Department of Psychiatry at the Semel Institute/ David Geffen School of Medicine. Opportunities for providing direct supervised clinical services to youth and families will be available through the UCLA Child OCD, Anxiety and Tic Disorders Program.
Requirements: Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from an APA-accredited program; strong interest and training or experience with prevention, intervention or implementation of evidence-based programs for reducing the burden of stress and anxiety in youth and families; bilingual (English/Spanish) is a plus, although not required.
The UCLA Department of Psychiatry philosophy is committed to recruiting and retaining individuals traditionally under-represented in the health sciences to reflect the diversity of the population we serve. We recognize that successfully recruiting individuals to join our enterprise is not the end of the story, and we strive to provide an environment in which all individuals in our workforce and trainee programs experience a professional, supportive, collaborative, and open environment and have the opportunity to thrive.
– The position is open immediately and applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
– Duration: 1 year, with potential to renew for an additional year.
– Competitive salary and benefits.
Interested applicants should submit a CV, 1-2 page letter of interest (including relevant research, clinical, teaching, and program development experience, and training goals) and names/contact info for three references to email@example.com.
