Postdoctoral Position in EBT Dissemination at the University of Delaware

University of Delaware
Newark, DE

We are recruiting for a new postdoctoral position in the Infant Caregiver Project at the University of Delaware. Dr. Mary Dozier and her students and staff at the Infant Caregiver Project study an intervention for high-risk children, the Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-up (ABC), assess the effectiveness of the intervention, and disseminate the intervention to national and international sites. 

As the evidence-base for ABC has grown (see here for more information), so too has interest in dissemination. We would like to interview individuals interested in joining our team's dissemination efforts. The position would primarily include training and supervising interventionists at other dissemination sites, as well as assessing and monitoring interventionist progress and fidelity. There is some flexibility around the start date, but the individual would ideally join the team in Summer 2017.

If interested, please contact Dr. Caroline Roben with a current CV
