Psychology Post-Doc Opportunity at Sanford Behavioral Health Center

We are excited to announce an off-the-beaten-path postdoc training opportunity in the psychology department at Sanford Behavioral Health Center, Thief River Falls, Minnesota. This postdoc opportunity offers a psychology resident a chance to work in an inpatient hospital, outpatient clinic, providing group therapy, exploring health psychology, doing assessments, gaining experience in child and family therapy, as well as doing assessments and reports for the local courts while getting the supervision needed for licensure.

Due to an expansion of services and also some recent retirements we are looking for bright and flexible clinicians to join our five doctoral level psychologists, three Master s level therapists, and psychiatric department in a thriving comprehensive mental health program which provides inpatient, outpatient, residential, and community-based services to the region of northwestern Minnesota. Our psychologists, who are members of the medical staff, enjoy diversity of experience galore and function in an atmosphere which values innovation, teamwork, common sense, and dedication to satisfy customer needs.

There is a modest studio apartment available as a benefit, along with a salary of $25,000, health insurance, and 2 weeks vacation.

Historically the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) has scored this area near the highest possible score. This means individuals with qualifying student loans are likely to be accepted into the NHSC and receive monies to repay student loans after they become licensed and are hired by a qualifying site. More information on this program is available at: http://nhsc.hrsa.gov/
Sanford Medical Center Thief River Falls has 600 local employees and is part of an organization that is now 25,000+ employees strong and covers over 220,000 square miles. However, we remain a private, not-for-profit, 25 bed critical access hospital, medical clinic, stand-alone 16 bed acute care psychiatric hospital, and behavioral health outpatient clinic. We have a small town atmosphere with “big time” support.

Program development activities and innovations are continuous thanks to the creativity of our mental health providers and the support of our executive administration team. Some recent examples of this are: implementing integrated behavioral health services at the medical clinic, expanding the inpatient hospital from 10 to 16 beds (the first time since the 1980 s that our state legislature has approved more hospital beds in Minnesota!) and providing psychiatric and psychological services using telemedicine for people who do not have easy access for in-person treatment. We are making plans to include medical providers in the mental health specialty clinic in the future which will be included in the mental health home program that is currently being developed.

Thief River Falls is a comfortable community of about 8,500 brave souls who endure cold and unforgiving winters in exchange for clean air, wide open spaces, no parking meters, no waiting, a low crime rate, and the opportunity to live a generally uncluttered life. Although the community is not a bustling metropolis, neither is it an Arctic outpost. It boasts good shopping and recreational facilities, a moderate regional airport with low cost tickets to Minneapolis, and a modern school system which includes a community college and vocational education complex. In the past there has been a comment about dining opportunities and in fairness to everyone I would say we have made some improvements, but most people do not come here because of the culinary experiences (although you can now get draft A&W root beer and Papa-Burgers!).

Wildlife abounds in this area and the fishing is quite good. Two rivers wind through the community providing year-round recreational opportunities including canoeing, kayaking, water skiing, cross country skiing, and snowmobiling (remember that the snowmobile was invented here). Nearby Lake of the Woods (on the US/Canadian border) offers scenic beauty and some of the best fishing in the country.

Winnipeg, which is about a 2-1/2-hour drive from Thief River Falls, serves as a convenient weekend getaway from the unhurried pace of rural living. With its many fine restaurants and abundant cultural opportunities, ethnically diverse Winnipeg delivers the benefits of a far larger city in a delightfully compact and manageable package, at a surprisingly affordable price.
Grand Forks, North Dakota, a one-hour drive from Thief River Falls, is home of the University of North Dakota and an APA accredited doctoral clinical training program.

We are looking for a bright, flexible individual who is interested in gaining clinical skills and experience in a broad range of problem areas, settings, and clientele. There will be opportunities to provide hospital consultation, assessment and psychotherapeutic services as requested by the counties, court, and community, as well as the ability to pursue individual clinical interests.
The successful applicant will work in a setting in which psychologists work side by side with psychiatric, pediatric, internal medicine, and family practice providers in both specialty and integrated care settings. They will be part of an organization that has been committed for years to relying on psychologists as primary care providers. Finally, they will work with seasoned clinicians who have come here from all over the country and who have remained because they are hooked on the professional and personal opportunities that have been made available.

The hazard of frostbite notwithstanding, this is a superb opportunity for a resourceful individual who would like to provide compassionate care in an appreciative and resourceful community. Although we are admittedly out of the mainstream, psychology has many and varied opportunities here in Thief River Falls, Minnesota.

To hear more about this opportunity, please call me at (218)683-4351 or e-mail your vita to rene.mooney@sanfordhealth.org.

Neuroscience Research Assistant Professor Position at Binghamton University

Binghamton University began a Freshman Research Immersion (FRI) program in AY2014-15, in which teams of research faculty design research courses and then work with a Research Assistant Professor who oversees the day-to-day research of the students. The undergraduates proceed through three courses (basic research methods in the freshman fall, beginning research project in freshman spring, and then follow-up research in sophomore fall), with about 30 students per cohort. More detail about the FRI program is available at our web site. Also Short FRI video and Quotes from FRI students

The Neuroscience research stream began in fall 2014. The researchers who compose the faculty sponsoring-team are: Christopher Bishop (Neuroplasticity, Parkinson’s disease and psychopharmacology), Terrence Deak (Response and adaptation to psychologically stressful events) and Lisa Savage (Animal models of memory disorders, psychopharmacology). Undergraduates in this research stream have conducted behavioral pharmacology research evaluating the neurobiological basis of aberrant motor and cognitive behaviors in rodent models of neurological diseases. Current students are evaluating sex differences in neurochemical and gene expression changes in Parkinson’s disease using rats. Students in the FRI Neuroscience have already presented at the Annual Northeast Under/graduate Research Organization for Neuroscience (NEURON) (conference at Quinnipiac University, Hamden, CT) and as co-authors at the annual Society for Neuroscience. Future projects will reflect mutual interests of the faculty team (including the research assistant professor) and the students.

Here is what Corinne Kiessling (PhD in Behavioral Neuroscience), Research Assistant Professor for Neuroscience Research Stream, said about her experience with this program: “The FRI program provided mentored support while I developed novel research questions investigated with undergraduate researchers. I had access to a variety of motor, cognitive, and anxiety rodent behavioral testing equipment, as well as a designated wet lab space equipped with equipment for conducting high performance liquid chromatography coupled to electrochemical detection (HPLC-ED), RT-qPCR, Western Blots, Spectrophotometry, and immunohistochemistry. Weekly meetings with fellow research educators built a sense of comradery and community while we shared teaching and mentoring strategies. Overall, leading the FRI-neuroscience stream was an incredibly rewarding experience.”

Here is what another FRI Research Assistant Professors said about his experience with this program: “The FRI has been a unique experience as it directly combined both research and teaching. It gave me the experience of managing a research lab, while still having support from other faculty members. It allowed me to submit multiple high-quality papers to peer-reviewed journals, via managing 5-6 different, student team research projects. I also had the amazing opportunity to mentor and work with a diverse population of young college students who are excited at the opportunity to learn how to do research. The FRI has been an amazing experience for me, and the lessons that I have learned from it will continue to stand out as I progress throughout my academic career.”

We will hire a Research Assistant Professor, to begin in the Neuroscience research stream mid August 2018. Candidates must have a PhD before starting. This position is open to PhD’s with appropriate background in behavioral neuroscience. We expect that hires will be in this non-tenure track position for two-three years.

The position is formally advertised at Binghamton University’s Interview Exchange:
