Neuropsychological Functioning in Pedophilic Men and Sexual Offenders

Dr. James Cantor of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH; Toronto, Canada) is seeking students interested in applying for a CAMH Postdoctoral Fellowship to participate in clinical research projects in the Kurt Freund Laboratory.  That program of research pertains to the neuropsychological functioning of individuals with paraphilias, atypical sexual interests, or histories of committing sexual offenses. The Fellow will participate in on-going projects and develop and conduct projects of the Fellow's own. Existing databases are available for retrospective data analyses, and opportunities are available for establishing new clinical research protocols (subject to REB approval). The Fellowship is ideal for those seeking research opportunities and experience in sexology, forensic psychology, assessment, or neuropsychology.

Applicants must be at or near the completion of a doctoral degree in psychology (clinical or counseling), and all degree requirements must be completed before taking up the Fellowship. Clinical experience and supervision can be provided for recent doctorates seeking to fulfill the requirements for licensure in Ontario (referred to as “registration” by the College of Psychologists of Ontario). This position is contingent upon a successful application to the CAMH Postdoctoral Fellowship Program (or to an external granting agency), which the student and Dr. Cantor would prepare jointly.

The 12-month stipend is $50,000 (Canadian; or approx., $45,000 U.S.). Interested students should contact Dr. Cantor at james_cantor@camh.net (please include a copy of your c.v.)  Additional information is available at http://individual.utoronto.ca/james_cantor.
