Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Health Psychology

James A. Fauerbach, Ph.D.

Program Director

The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences announces a postdoctoral fellowship in clinical health/rehabilitation psychology. The goal is to develop research expertise and to benefit from training in rehabilitation and clinical health psychology in preparation for advanced academic or clinical appointments.  The primary responsibilities of the fellow are coordination of a National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) funded burn model system project with local and national collaborative projects, as well as evaluation and treatment of patients admitted to the Johns Hopkins Burn Center.  Start date as early as summer 2010 - second year contingent upon mutual consent.

The position provides a fairly even split between clinical and research activity and requires knowledge and expertise in cognitive-behavioral therapy.  Clinical work focuses on CBT assessment/formulation and treatment of patients with acute burn injuries. Clinical issues and active areas of investigation include acute and chronic posttraumatic stress disorder, pain, physical deconditioning and body image distress.  Fellows also take part in various departmental and campus-wide didactics and seminars, participate in ongoing projects, and develop independent investigations – several opportunities for submitting small grants are available.  Additionally, fellows are expected to develop and present abstracts and submit original manuscripts from project data. 

The position also benefits from collaborative relationships with other Hopkins resources such as the JH Anxiety Disorders Clinic, the JH Center for Mind-Body Research and the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation which provide further clinical training, mentoring, and research opportunities.  We are most interested in applicants who have completed an APA-accredited program and internship and whose degree will be awarded by the time of the fellowship. Experience in critically ill or injured populations is favorable but not necessary.

Applications should include a letter requesting consideration and stating near- and long-term career goals, curriculum vitae, and three letters of reference.
