Position Description

The Trauma Recovery & Resilience Innovations (TRI) group is seeking a Postdoctoral Scholar for a full-time, two-year appointment in the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at the University of Washington.

The project is being conducted by faculty at the University of Washington (Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences and Psychology), Stanford University (Psychiatry), and Georgia State University. Dr. Michele Bedard-Gilligan is the study PI and supervisor for this position.

The primary duties for this position will involve the coordination of a treatment outcome study that uses a multiple randomization design to explore the effects of a fear (imaginal exposure), reward (alcohol skills training), or fear/reward combined intervention compared to supportive control on symptoms of PTSD and alcohol misuse. Additional duties will include training and consultation with supervisors, provision of direct clinical service to participants enrolled in the trial, data management and statistical analysis, and manuscript, presentation, and grant preparation.

This is a two-year appointment. The intended start date is negotiable. This position is full-time with competitive salary and benefits through the University of Washington.
