Posted: 10/29/2013
Job Title: Early Detection Specialist (Postdoctoral Associate)
Employer: Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut

This position is supported by a five-year NIMH grant that seeks to reduce the Duration of Untreated Psychosis (DUP) in a defined geographic catchment of four towns in southern Connecticut. The intervention will involve the use of 1) a social marketing campaign; 2) education of area professionals; and 3) coordination to ensure rapid entry into an established first-episode psychosis service (STEP or the clinic for Specialized Treatment Early in Psychosis).

The ED specialist will be most closely involved with developing the media campaign in the first year and will subsequently have primary responsibility for all assessments at baseline and during one year follow-up of all patients recruited during the first four years of the grant. Other tasks will include database management and participation in the analysis and dissemination of results.


Doctoral degree or candidacy in psychology or MD is strongly preferred. Clinical experience with psychotic illnesses a must. Training in marketing, behavior change, social psychology or communication sciences preferred.


Please send CV and three references to Vinod Srihari, MD, Principal Investigator.
