The Indiana Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) program is currently accepting applications for a clinical psychology postdoctoral fellowship position with a focus on neurodevelopmental disabilities. Two positions are available each year. This fellowship offers a unique opportunity to be part of an interdisciplinary clinical team as well as participate in didactics and research focused on leadership, policy and advocacy, mentoring and networking, family-centered care, and interdisciplinary work.
The Indiana LEND has been situated in the Department of Pediatrics in the Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM) since 1970. The Department of Pediatrics is home to several research centers, boasts an outstanding reputation in clinical, basic science and translational research, and is consistently among the top five to ten percent of National Institutes of Health pediatric funding recipients nationally. IUSM’s pediatric services are nationally ranked and the clinical faculty provide over 160,000 outpatient visits and over 11,000 inpatient admissions to Riley Hospital. The mission of the Indiana LEND is to provide an interdisciplinary training experience that prepares graduate and post-graduate professionals from numerous health, education, and related disciplines to deliver high-quality services that result in improved systems of care for persons with ASD and other neurodevelopmental and related disabilities (including intellectual disabilities, neurodegenerative and acquired neurological disorders) and their families.
