The candidate should be trained on diagnostic instruments for autism and ADHD, including the ADOS-2. The applicant should also have established research skills investigating early development of and intervention for neurodevelopmental disorders as well as early intervention systems.

Opportunities to submit grant applications are available. Teaching and supervisory experience of child psychiatry and general psychiatry residents, fellows, and medical students is preferred, as well as experience supervising psychology practicum students, predoctoral interns and postdoctoral fellows. Time is allocated for didactic teaching, case conferences, and supervision. In addition, as noted above, the applicant will engage in scholarly or creative activities derived from and in support of their clinical teaching, professional, and service activities. Opportunities for involvement in established research programs may be available.

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences has approximately 65 residents in six residency training programs and 90 faculty and staff psychiatrists and psychologists at the UC Davis Medical Center and the Northern California VA Health System.
