Assistant or Associate Professor (tenure track potential)
The Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at NYU Langone Health is seeking candidates at the Assistant or Associate Professor level to contribute to the growth of our research program. Candidates’ research programs can be in any area relevant to advancing scientific knowledge about child and adolescent psychiatry, including neurodevelopment, genomics, neurogenesis, digital technologies and their application in addressing clinically important questions including early childhood and autism, clinical effectiveness, depression, and suicide. The successful candidate will have current NIH grant funding and evidence of current or potential impact on their field of interest through publications and/or other contributions.
As one of only two independent medical school departments wholly dedicated to child and adolescent psychiatry in the nation, NYU Langone Health’s Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is on the forefront of change, transforming child and adolescent mental healthcare through innovative education, research, patient care, and community engagement. Comprised of over 100 clinicians, researchers and educators, a substantial NIH funding portfolio and more than 45k patient visits annually, our highly specialized team combines passion, purpose and precision to support the distinct strengths and challenges of every child. Through leading-edge treatments, training, and research and technologies, we address the unmet and urgent mental health needs of children, families and communities everywhere.
Child and Adolescent Psychiatry research programs span basic science, clinical research, and systems and population health, and our investigators collaborate with experts across NYU Langone and at other institutions to study autism, depression, anxiety and disruptive disorders, trauma, parent–child relationships, and many other areas of psychiatry and psychology. Researchers in our WonderLab develop and use digital health apps and data analytics tools to advance the science of child development and mental health and to engage with and care for children and families around the globe. Our programs and services serve children and their families with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorder, anxiety and mood disorders, tics and Tourette disorder, learning disabilities, stress and trauma, and early childhood and other developmental and mental health needs. We also provide care at NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue, the only public hospital with a child psychiatry emergency department in New York State; Rockland Children’s Psychiatric Center in Orangeburg, New York; in school, juvenile justice, and child welfare settings; and in rural communities through our child psychiatry telemedicine program.
The department’s commitment to training leaders in mental healthcare, integrated approach to research, and broad-reaching clinical services define excellence in the field. Our educational programs include child and adolescent mental health studies for undergraduates and advanced training for medical, nursing, and social work students, including a child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship and child and adolescent psychology fellowships, internship, and externships. We are also proud to serve as the New York City Regional Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders, one of seven sites in the state that offers professional training to improve access to services and outcomes for children with autism spectrum disorder. Additionally, our community-based webinar and workshop series provide families, healthcare professionals, and educational professionals with information on the latest research and clinical approaches for a variety of other mental health and behavioral concerns. Our 73,000 SF of state-of-the-art space is designed to meet the needs of researchers, clinicians, educators, and administrative staff, with the newest investment an integrated pediatric developmental neuroscience research lab located right in our office space which provides developmentally appropriate space for children from infancy through adolescence.
