It’s for 6 months, open to Australian and international applicants (please spread the word!), with an expected start mid-January 2014.
The job will have two main parts:
1. Participation in a study on parent-child communication in daily life in a community sample of families with 3 to 16 year old children. This study makes use of the Electronically Activated Recorder (EAR) methodology to audiorecord snippets of families’ interactions at home. The fellow will be involved in data collection, transcription/coding, data-analysis, and manuscript writing.
2. Development of new projects and grant applications. Ideally, the fellow has experience and expertise complementary to the lab’s so we can develop interesting new ideas together. Examples of topics we’re currently interested in (bold new ideas are very welcome too!):
- family interactions and social support after trauma
- global child mental health
- psychological first aid for children
- experiences of emergency professionals working with children
- child refugee mental health
- neuropsychological/biological aspects of mental health
- the implementation of evidence based mental health care
We’re looking for someone with a PhD in a relevant area, e.g. child development, biological psychology, family studies, (global) mental health or implementation science.
