Addiction Psychology Post-Doctoral Fellow

Company Details

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 assessments.

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.
