Postdoctoral Fellowship, University of Pennsylvania’s Penn Collaborative for CBT and Implementation Science

Jun 7,2021 | Consortium_staff Fellowships

This announcement is for TWO openings for Postdoctoral Fellows with the University of Pennsylvania’s Penn Collaborative for CBT and Implementation Science.

Since 2007, the Penn Collaborative has served as a model for the successful implementation of CBT in community behavioral health settings, increasing access to CBT and other evidence-based practices for under-resourced communities.

Under the direction of Torrey A. Creed, Ph.D., each Fellow will have the unique opportunity to participate in both the practice of implementation and the empirical study of its strategies and outcomes. From an implementation practice perspective, the Fellows will help to lead the Beck Community Initiative implementation of CBT with community mental health care providers integrated into schools, including the design and delivery of CBT workshops and consultation, coordination of CBT services across various school-based staff, delivery of strategies to support sustainability, and program evaluation. The Fellows will receive supervision and clinical hours toward licensure as a clinical psychologist. The Fellows will also be involved in our ongoing partnership related to policy and practices of evidence-based practices with Philadelphia’s Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual Disability Services.

In addition, the Fellows may choose to participate in research projects including NIMH-funded research and self- directed projects, grant writing, manuscript preparation, mentorship of junior staff members, and other academic and administrative endeavors.

These two-year Fellowships will begin in the summer of 2021, and applications are being reviewed on a rolling basis.
