UCF RESTORES has an immediate opening for a post-doctoral fellow to join our expanding clinical research center dedicated to anxiety, stress, and trauma. There are ongoing clinical and research programs with veterans and active military personnel, first responders and civilians who have been affected by trauma. These programs span the "bench to bedside" philosophy and include studies of basic psychopathology, prevention, resilience, and intervention. In addition to joining these ongoing research programs, the post-doctoral fellow will have the opportunity to establish/continue their own line of research within the center and participate in the academic training of graduate and undergraduate students within the center. Additionally, there will be enough clinical opportunities to ensure licensure at the end of the fellowship year (a two year fellowship is possible).

The mission of UCF RESTORES includes integrating technology into the delivery of prevention, resilience, and intervention efforts. This includes the development and use of virtual reality and virtual environments, web-based technologies and mobile phone applications. The multi-disciplinary team includes psychologists, social workers, statisticians, graduate students, and a part-time psychiatrist, allowing for a vibrant working environment. There are numerous opportunities to assist in grant-writing as the Center has active external funding from the National Institute of Mental Health, Department of Defense, Office of Naval Research, and private foundations.

This is a 12-24 month fellowship at an annual rate of $60,000 plus benefits. Pending funding, this fellowship could become a permanent faculty position. The successful applicant with have a doctoral degree in clinical psychology and have completed a doctoral internship, both accredited by the American Psychological Association.
