Post-Doctoral Fellowships

At the BRTC, post­doc­toral fel­lows com­plete rota­tions as lead­ers of each of our research teams: Treat­ment, Assess­ment, Data, Train­ing, and Adher­ence.  Fel­lows’ respon­si­bil­i­ties include such tasks as data analy­sis and man­u­script prepa­ra­tion, pro­vid­ing admin­is­tra­tive sup­port to clin­i­cal staff, over­see­ing adher­ence of research pro­to­cols, cod­ing treat­ment adher­ence of research ther­a­pists, and pro­vid­ing super­vi­sion and sup­port to junior level research per­son­nel on the treat­ment stud­ies (includ­ing under­grad­u­ate research assis­tants, work-study stu­dents, grad­u­ate stu­dents, and the par­tic­i­pant coor­di­na­tor).  As a result, fel­lows receive hands-on expe­ri­ence in the day-to-day tasks of run­ning and man­ag­ing all aspects of large-scale clin­i­cal trials.

Over the years, Dr. Line­han has suc­cess­fully trained a num­ber of post­doc­toral fel­lows (a total of 12 includ­ing the cur­rent fel­low). Over half of them went on to research and aca­d­e­mic posi­tions and devel­oped a career in treat­ment devel­op­ment and empir­i­cal inves­ti­ga­tions of dif­fi­cult to treat clients. A num­ber of them went on to admin­is­tra­tive and/or clin­i­cal train­ing posi­tions work­ing to develop, eval­u­ate, and dis­sem­i­nate evidence-based treatments.
