Full-Time Postdoctoral Student with Assessment/Forensic Training

  • Stone, McElroy & Associates
  • Smyrna, GA, USA
Postdoc Business/Management Consultant Forensic Personality Postdoctoral Testing and Assessment

Job Description

DESCRIPTION: Stone, McElroy & Associates (SMA), an Atlanta-based forensic and psychological risk management consulting firm, invites applications for a full-time postdoctoral student with previous assessment or forensic training in their graduate school program or internship. Postdoctoral students work under the supervision of two Board Certified Police and Public Safety Psychologists and are encouraged to channel an elevated level of communication while also learning to work as an independent, self-sufficient member of our team.  Work experiences include risk and threat assessment, psychological pre-employment screening services, both police/public safety and corporate fitness for duty evaluations, and risk management consultation with television networks and production companies.   

This opportunity will include the option to work out of our offices in Smyrna, GA, but also allows for opportunities to work remotely and travel across the country for various media and police and public safety projects. Working alongside police and public safety psychologists, all board-certified through the American Board of Professional Psychology, affords the postdoctoral student the opportunity to learn from experienced leaders within the field of risk management, inevitably broadening their experience, contacts, and knowledge within our niche industry. Research opportunities are also available and currently include work with Drs. Yossef Ben-Porath, Dave Corey, and Mike Roberts to assess the predictive validity of personality testing on hiring outcomes and the development of personality test norms for various types of public safety candidates in the Southeast. 

The team at SMA works together to ensure the needs of the business are being met, and our hard work materializes into benefits that include a competitive salary, paid vacation and holidays, employer-paid medical insurance, a gym/club membership after one year of employment, the opportunity to participate in the 401k program, and firm outings to social and sporting events. Postdoctoral students will receive malpractice insurance, travel to clients located across the country, and receive invitations to attend industry-relevant conventions and training.

For highly motivated individuals we offer employment opportunities after completion of the postdoctoral year to include commission salary options, additional bonuses, and future partnership opportunities in one of the most successful risk management psychological firms in the country. This opportunity would also serve as one year of the three years required to be eligible to apply for ABPP certification in Forensic Psychology or Police and Public Safety Psychology.

REQUIREMENTS: Successful applicants must have completed a doctoral degree in clinical or counseling psychology from an APA-accredited program, as well as an APA-accredited predoctoral clinical internship. Excellent writing skills and grammar are essential requirements. Our schedule is based on the needs of our clients, and it is expected that while our office maintains Monday through Friday business hours, our staff may travel/work outside of those hours to accommodate our various clients. You must enjoy spontaneity and travel to succeed in this role!
