The fellowship will focus on acquisition of clinical and research skills related to school-based intervention, organizational skills training for children, and training and consultation to elementary school personnel. The fellow will have the opportunity to contribute to grant writing and dissemination activities (i.e., presentations at national meetings, manuscript preparation).

The expected start date is August 1, 2020. The expectation is that the fellow will commit for two years. Salary is based on the NIH rate.

Applicants should have a PhD in clinical child or school psychology from an APA-accredited doctoral program. Prior experience with behavioral intervention and school-based consultation is preferred. Strong interest in school-based mental health is preferred.
