Postdoctoral Psychology Fellowship - Addiction Psychology Fellow, Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Montefiore Medical
Center and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine are pleased to announce
the creation of a one-year, full-time Addiction Psychology Postdoctoral
Fellowship. This fellowship will span Montefiore’s extensive network of
addiction treatment programs to provide training and experience in the
assessment and treatment of substance use disorders.

The Addiction Psychology Fellow will provide care in Montefiore’s Substance
Abuse Treatment Program (SATP) and Wakefield Recovery Center (WRC), which
together provide care to over 1,200 individuals with substance use
disorders throughout the Bronx. These programs include Opioid Treatment
Programs and Intensive Outpatient Programs, offering integrated counseling,
addiction medicine, primary care and psychiatric services to a racially,
ethnically and socially diverse population. The fellow will work closely
with our dedicated team of addiction professionals to assist patients in
developing the skills they need to reach their recovery goals.

Our addiction treatment programs offer evidence-based care, integrating
addiction medications such as methadone and buprenorphine, with
empirically-supported behavioral interventions. The fellow will receive
training and experience in harm reduction approaches and group and
individual therapy utilizing Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive
Behavioral Therapy for substance use and relapse prevention, Dialectical
Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Community
Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT). The fellow will also learn to
conduct comprehensive substance use-focused evaluations and risk

Opportunities exist for research, program development and supported
supervision of clinical psychology externs. Fellows will spend
approximately 60% of their time in the provision of direct clinical care,
and will engage in weekly individual and group supervision as well as
weekly educational lectures. The fellowship offers a highly competitive
salary and a comprehensive benefits package.

The target start date for the postdoctoral fellowship is August 1, 2022,
but is flexible. Eligible candidates will have completed a doctoral-level
(PhD or PsyD) APA/PCSAS-accredited clinical psychology graduate program,
completed an APA/CPA-accredited pre-doctoral internship and have a limited
permit in the State of New York before starting. Applications will be
reviewed on a rolling basis until a candidate is selected.

Interested candidates should email a cover letter and CV to:
