Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowships - Integrated Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders (iCASD), Munroe-Meyer Institute, Omaha, NE

Posted: Monday, November 30, 2020


The Integrated Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders (iCASD) at the Munroe-Meyer Institute (MMI) is recruiting for psychology postdoctoral fellows for the 2021-2022 training year. We are recruiting fellows to be part of a dynamic and growing interdisciplinary team of providers who are dedicated to meeting the needs of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their families. This position will focus on both diagnostic evaluations and intervention services. We provide diagnostic evaluations within an interdisciplinary team for toddlers, children, and adolescents. We also implement evidence-based intervention practices, including, but not limited to, short-term parent training programs and individual or group behavior interventions, as well as more intensive applied behavior analytic services. We strongly encourage and support the development of clinical research within MMI and collaboration across other academic institutions, including applying for internal and extramural funding.

The Integrated Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders was established in 2019 to incorporate a multitude of existing autism services under one center. The iCASD is home to programs designed to meet the needs of individuals with ASD and their families, including diagnostic services, intensive behavior analytic services, and parent training and education programs. We are rapidly expanding our clinical and research efforts, as well as our collaborations with community intervention and educational programs. In Spring 2021, MMI will move into a new state of the art facility in Aksarben Village ( The new location is a uniquely designed facility to integrate care for the individuals and families with disabilities and complex health care needs. The redesigned and renovated building will effectively double the institute's current size to 220,078 square feet.

All candidates should have a conferred doctoral degree and clinical internship from an APA/CPA accredited program in Clinical, Counseling, or School Psychology with specialty training in ASD and developmental disabilities. Candidates should also be knowledgeable about standards of care for ASD diagnostic evaluations, as well as evidence-based interventions. Postdoctoral fellows will have the opportunity to obtain ADOS-2 research reliability with an independent trainer if they have not already reached this certification. Board Certified Behavioral Analyst credential is preferred, but not required. Must be license-eligible in Nebraska as a provisional licensed psychologist.
