This is a one-year part-time (50%) postdoctoral fellowship, that is comprised of research and clinical work. The Dialectical Behavior Therapy Clinic (DBT-RU), under the directorship of Dr. Shireen Rizvi, provides comprehensive DBT to adult individuals from the community who meet criteria for borderline personality disorder and have severe difficulties in emotion regulation and in other aspects of self-management (suicidal behavior, substance use, multiple co-occuring problems). We have recently expanded our clinic to include treatment for adolescents age 13 and up and their families.
The fellow will participate in weekly research meetings, weekly DBT team meeting, supervision, and a variety of Grand Rounds, colloquium, and other learning opportunities available through Rutgers. Research opportunities include data analysis, research publications, professional presentations, and grant writing. Clinically, the post-doctoral fellow will provide individual DBT, skills training groups, phone coaching, and will participate in training and the DBT consultation team. The qualified fellow will also have opportunities to conduct training and supervision of graduate-level clinicians.
The successful candidate will have had training in DBT, CBT, and diagnostic assessment. In addition, the successful candidate will have research experience in one or more of the domains listed above and have experience with IRB applications, managing databases, and statistical analysis software.
