McLean Hospital Full-Time Postdoctoral Fellow in the McLean OCD Institute for Children and Adolescents (OCDI Jr.), Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Division, Harvard Medical School

McLean Hospital is seeking to fill a full-time clinical postdoctoral fellowship position in the OCD Institute for Children and Adolescents (OCDI Jr.). Since 1997, McLean has been home to the Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Institute (OCDI), a treatment program for adults. The OCDI Jr., which opened in 2015, is a residential program for children and adolescents ages 10 to 17 who present with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety, and related disorders. Located on McLean Hospital’s Southeast campus in Middleborough, Massachusetts, the program provides cutting-edge treatment delivered in a sensitive and nurturing manner. The primary treatments used are Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). These evidence-based behavioral treatment approaches have been shown to have a profound and positive impact on the lives of children and adolescents struggling with OCD and related anxiety disorders. The OCDI Jr. is one of only two programs in the country to provide this form of residential evidence-based treatment for anxious youth. The position offers an opportunity for a psychologist with interest in OCD, anxiety, related evidence-based treatments, and clinical research.

Candidates must have a doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from an APA-accredited program, have completed an APA-accredited internship. It would be helpful for qualified individuals to have clinical experience with OCD, anxiety and related disorders, and acceptance-based behavior therapy such as ERP and/or ACT.

Qualified women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
