The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Emory University School of Medicine seeks to hire an adult outpatient psychologist faculty member in our innovative new Emory Healthcare Veterans Program (EHVP). The EHVP includes a multidisciplinary care model incorporating psychiatry, neurology, psychology, rehabilitation medicine, and social work to optimize care delivery and outcomes, all housed in a single location. We use evidence based care while also pushing forward the boundaries of care for the most difficult to treat patients. We are particularly interested in individuals with expertise in posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, and traumatic brain injury (TBI), and substance use disorders. Military knowledge and/or experience is a plus, as is previous experience working with veterans and their families. The psychologist will work with an interdisciplinary team to provide state-of-the-art, multidisciplinary care including psychotherapeutic management of their symptoms and treatment protocols. With the treatment team, the psychologist will be responsible for coordinating the care of the veterans, conducting quality assessments, case conferences, and administrative meetings.
The psychologist will provide direct patient care to veterans and their family members as the program grows. The psychologist will also help develop comprehensive treatment protocols in collaboration with other brain health specialists. We are looking for providers who provide the best care possible while pushing the field forward in how we provide care to this critical population. The responsibilities for this position will include some or all of the following: academic leadership, teaching, mentoring, research, publications, clinical practice, citizenship, and administration. Position-specific duties may change with each academic year through discussion with Program Director. The rank of the appointment is open and will be commensurate with the experience and professional accomplishments of the selected applicant. The minimal qualifications include the completion of a PhD degree, from an accredited program in clinical psychology or a similar field, a post-doctoral fellowship and Georgia State license. Appointment at any level beyond Assistant Professor will require a successful record of external funding to support research activities, some administrative experience, and an active publication record of accomplished research.
