Looking for a Clinical Psychological Scientist in Advance Cognitive Therapy for Schizophrenia with Aaron T. Beck at the University of Pennsylvania
We currently have an opening for a clinical psychological scientist to direct our research projects on schizophrenia, under the direction of Aaron T. Beck, M.D. Primary responsibilities for this position will include data analysis and manuscript preparation with existing research databases, including a large 6-month naturalistic longitudinal study and a 24-month randomized clinical trial of Recovery-Oriented Cognitive Therapy. These studies included comprehensive clinical and psychometric assessments of cognitive variables, symptomology, and functioning, using self-report questionnaires, clinical interviews/ratings, and behavioral measures. Secondary responsibilities will include overseeing new data collection projects, assisting with grant submissions, supervising and mentoring research assistants, and contributing to clinical training initiatives.
Appropriate candidates must have a strong track-record of research training and productivity, expertise in statistical analysis, and good scientific writing skills. Experience with advanced statistical methods for analyzing multivariate and longitudinal data (e.g., hierarchal linear modeling, path analysis) is also desired, as is previous training in cognitive-behavioral and/or recovery-oriented treatments for schizophrenia and knowledge of this area of research. The initial appointment will be at the level of Research Associate, with the possibility of future promotion to Research Assistant Professor.
Bilingual candidates are especially encouraged to apply.
Please send a curriculum vitae with a cover letter and two letters of recommendation via email to Aaron T. Beck, M.D., at firstname.lastname@example.org.
