Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Child OCD Program, Emory Medical School, Georgia

Full-time Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Child OCD Program at Emory (COPE) for 2024-2025

The Child OCD Program at Emory (COPE), housed within the Emory Child and Adolescent Mood Program (CAMP) in the Department of Psychiatry at Emory School of Medicine, is seeking qualified candidates for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship position. The fellowship will involve 50% time on direct clinical care and 50% time on program development, practicum student supervision, and research and outreach projects.

Postdoctoral fellows will receive advanced training and supervision in the delivery of evidence-based treatment for OCD. COPE is a telehealth-based intensive outpatient program (IOP) for adolescent OCD in which youth receive 10 hours of therapy per week, including 8 hours of group therapy (acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and exposure and response prevention (ERP)), individual therapy, and family therapy. The postdoc will co-lead group sessions, carry a caseload of approximately 3 IOP patients, and manage intakes and booster track sessions. They will also have the opportunity to see children, adolescents, and young adults for in person or virtual therapy through the Child and Adolescent Mood Program (CAMP) outpatient clinic. In addition, the postdoc will be involved in Emory’s 3 week-long summer camps for anxiety & OCD, depression, and emotion dysregulation.

Program development and outreach projects can be tailored to the postdoc’s interests, but include opportunities for community and school outreach, building out program materials, strengthening the research infrastructure, and developing additional groups and programming. There are also opportunities to collaborate on multiple NIMH and foundation-funded studies focused on adolescent mood disorders and rural mental health. Additional research opportunities are available if desired.

Candidates must have a doctoral degree in clinical psychology, including completion of an APPIC-approved internship, and experience in working with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). Experience working with adolescents and with acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is highly preferred.

Interested candidates should send a CV, statement of interest, and contact information for 3 professional references by email to: Rebecca Schneider (

Start date is September 2, 2024 but can be flexible if needed.
