Anxiety and Behavioral Health Clinic (ABHC), a clinical research laboratory at Florida State University, seeks applicants for a Post-Doctoral Fellow/Asst. Research Professor to begin in Summer 2022. The ABHC is a translational research lab dedicated to developing and testing interventions (particularly technology based) focused on prevention and treatment of anxiety and related conditions including trauma, substance use and mood disorders.

This is an administratively created position by the Dean of the College that is not tied to a particular grant. As such, there is considerable flexibility with regard to assignment of responsibilities based on the candidate’s professional objectives. However, it is expected that the candidate will work closely with Norman B. Schmidt, Ph.D. along with the graduate students, RAs, and undergraduates who constitute ABHC. There will also be opportunities to collaborate with other faculty within and outside of psychology including the Colleges of Medicine and Nursing. Overall activities will be flexible to optimize professional development for the candidate and will include participation in ongoing projects, grant writing, and candidate-initiated projects. The department includes a highly collaborative group of researchers with interests in internalizing psychopathology. Ongoing ABHC grant related activities at FSU include collaborations with world-class researchers including Drs. Joiner (clinical psychology), Hajcak (clinical psychology), Meyer (clinical psychology), Li (neuroscience/clinical psychology), Boot (cognitive psychology), Sheffler (college of medicine), and Ahn (college of nursing).

We also expect to hire a second postdoctoral fellow to assist with a multisite RO1 clinical trial focused on a newly developed CBT protocol for individuals with Mild Cognitive Impairment. Preferred applicants should have expertise in prevention, intervention, or dissemination science. Preference will also be given to individuals who are already working in the areas of anxiety and trauma, but other outstanding candidates will be considered. There will be opportunities for the fellow to accrue hours for licensure. The opportunity is funded for at least three years.


Applicants for the position must have completed a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from an APA accredited doctoral program and psychology internship program.

Candidates must also have demonstrated a record of scholarship.

Experience collecting and analyzing data.

Strong written and oral communication skills.

Excellent interpersonal skills.

Inquiries concerning the position are welcome and should be sent to Brad Schmidt (

Interested candidates should send statements of research and clinical interests (including future research plans), a CV, reprints of recent publications and the names and contact information of at least three references.
