Assistant Professor of Clinical Child Psychology
Yale University
United States


The Yale Child Study Center, in collaboration with the Section of Pediatric Gastroenterology & Hepatology, has an opening for a full-time pediatric psychologist to join our growing team of GI psychologists in YNHH Children’s Hospital. Successful candidates will be appointed as Assistant Professor of Child Clinical Psychology on the Clinical track and will provide intervention as part of an interdisciplinary team.  Our embedded pediatric psychologists work collaboratively with pediatric sub-specialists, nurses, social workers, and allied professionals.  For this role, the pediatric psychologist will offer outpatient consultation and treatment to patients and families seen through our General GI clinics as well as our Motility clinics. Opportunities for cultivation of specialized interests are available and welcomed. Clinical care will involve a combination of in person visits and telehealth options to reach families across the state of Connecticut.

The mission of the Yale Child Study Center is to improve the mental health of children and families, advance understanding of their psychological and developmental needs, and treat and prevent childhood mental illness through the integration of research, clinical practice, and professional training.  The Child Study Center is committed to recruiting, supporting and encouraging the most gifted clinicians, researchers, and leaders in the field today as well those in succeeding generations in the service of its clinical, research, training, policy, and prevention agendas.

Successful candidates must possess a doctoral degree in psychology, a postdoctoral fellowship in pediatric psychology, and be licensed or license-eligible in Connecticut.  Training and experience in collaborative, integrated behavioral health models of service delivery in specialty medical clinics are highly preferred.   We welcome applicants with interests in program development, quality improvement, and training.  Experience in GI Psychology preferred but not required, as there will be opportunities for training and supervision.
