Academic Level:
Postdoc & Early Career

The UR/CSPS is pleased to announce the availability of positions for postdoctoral training in suicide prevention research. The UR/CSPS postdoctoral training program is supported by an institutional National Research Service Award training grant from NIMH (Yeates Conwell, MD, Program Director; Kim Van Orden, PhD, Associate Director). It provides up to three years of stipend support and related benefits for early career investigators committed to careers in suicide prevention research. Each fellow works closely with a primary mentor, takes courses and participates in a diverse array of CSPS research and training activities. A strength of the UR/CSPS fellowship is the provision of intensive mentorship in grant writing, study design, and data analysis from UR/CSPS core faculty dedicated to suicide prevention.

Mentors and consultants are available from a wide range of experts both at UR and the VA VISN 2 Center of Excellence for Suicide Prevention (VA CoE)(, as well as through an international network of UR/CSPS collaborators. Based at the University of Rochester Medical Center, one of the largest academic health systems in New York State, the UR/CSPS fellowship is associated with (but not identical to) the VA Advanced Fellowship in Veteran Mental Health and Suicide Prevention; prospective fellows may apply to both fellowships.

The emphasis of UR/CSPS research is on the development and testing of interventions across the full spectrum of approaches to suicide prevention - universal, selective, and indicated - and in a variety of vulnerable groups including adolescents and older adults, victims of violence, Veterans, and individuals with medical, psychiatric, and social comorbidities. Faculty and fellows are currently engaged in projects that target populations across the life course. While ours is a research fellowship, opportunities for clinical work that contribute to a fellow's program of research (and contribute to licensure) are also possible.
