Lumpkins Fellowship in Serious Mental Illness Treatment and Recovery
Hope and Healing Institute, Houston, TX
The Hope and Healing Institute (Houston, TX) invites applications for the Lumpkins Fellowship in Mental Health Treatment and Recovery. The Lumpkins Fellow will be part of a two year research project to study, catalog and assess the best programs and facilities treating mental illness in the US. The objectives of the project are twofold: 1) to develop a platform for assisting families in identifying and accessing the most effective/suitable treatments and programs for their mentally ill loved ones; 2) to identify and document best practices in mental healthcare across the US to enhance care in Texas.
Responsibilities of the Fellow will include the review and critique of relevant scientific, clinical, philosophical, legal, political, and/or ethical literatures, as well as the development and elucidation of new perspectives, programs and approaches. The Fellow will be expected to include public outreach in research dissemination strategies. Writing for lay journals, news media, and on-line publications and blogs is anticipated in addition to publishing in relevant peer-reviewed journals.
This is a 2-year position (with an option for a one year extension). Applicants must have completed their doctoral degree in psychology, social work, or a related field. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until a successful candidate is hired. Applications must include a CV, a statement of interests, and three letters of recommendation.
