Yale University Clinical Postdoctoral Fellowship in Addiction

The Department of Psychiatry, Yale University School of Medicine is inviting applications for clinical postdoctoral training in addictions, beginning July 1, 2015. Primary placement will be at the Forensic Drug Diversion (ForDD) Clinic, a community-based outpatient facility, which offers training in both the areas of assessment and evidenced-based interventions for offender populations diverted from corrections and criminal justice settings into substance abuse treatment. Fellows have the opportunity to work with internationally recognized experts in both substance use and forensic psychiatry. This placement affords experiences in evidenced-based clinical interventions, forensic substance dependency assessments, and research. The training program is grounded in the scientist-practitioner model, and fellows are expected to expend 75% of their effort in the clinic and didactics, and 25% will be devoted to research. Postdoctoral fellows will participate in a diverse training program including both didactic seminars (e.g., special populations in addictions, grant and scientific writing skills, career development, and biostatistics), research seminars in the Division of Substance Abuse, and individualized mentoring to build clinical expertise and programs of research.
