postdoctoral opportunity

am hiring a postdoctoral fellow beginning in July, 2020.  Students with training in adversity exposure, memory development, narratives, maltreatment, or trauma could expand their expertise in exciting new directions in child and
adolescent development with our team. I targeted faculty who might have  someone who is interested. If so, please forward this note!

The fellow will collaborate on several projects concerning disclosure processes and narratives in victimized children and adolescents,  including those subjected to human trafficking (e.g., we are evaluating
how variations in questioning approaches affect trafficking victim disclosures, including the amount and type of information reported).

The fellow will be apart of a multi-disciplinary team at UC Irvine and University of Southern California, will be a member of UCI’s Center for Psychology and Law, and will be able to take part in activities in the aw school at USC. We have very strong connections to social services in the county and regularly work with them on child maltreatment
identification and intervention efforts. Thus, there are opportunities to pursue additional research with high-risk populations as well.

Please have interested students email me at
