Postdoc Abnormal Postdoctoral Psychopathology

Job Description

Applications are being sought for a postdoctoral position in the Ellman Lab in the Department of Psychology at Temple University. The Ellman Lab focuses on developmental risk factors for psychosis and related disorders (e.g., schizophrenia and depression) during the pre- and perinatal period and in adolescence/young adulthood. The latter studies involve multi-modal assessment of risk factors, including (but not limited to) biomarkers, neuroimaging, cognition, and a variety of psychosocial risk factors. The postdoctoral fellow will focus primarily on multiple large, multi-site studies examining risk for psychosis in adolescence/young adulthood, but could contribute to any of the ongoing studies in the lab and will have opportunities to develop independent research projects.  Clinical hours towards licensure will be available, in addition to many potential research opportunities.  

Required Qualifications: Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology

Preferred Qualifications: Experience with structured interviewing, interest/experience in psychosis.

Responsibilities will include conducting clinical interviews, including certification in the Structured Clinical Interview for Psychosis-Risk Syndromes (SIPS), supervision and mentorship of lab graduate students, leading diagnostic consensus meetings across-sites, and manuscript development/preparation.

For questions or to submit an application, please contact Lauren Ellman (
