University of California, Irvine is 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.
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 a part 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.
