VA MIRECC Advanced Fellowship Program in Mental Health Research and Treatment


Overview: The Mental Illness Research, Education and Clinical Center (MIRECC) of the New York/New Jersey Veterans Healthcare Network is recruiting psychologists (or other allied health professionals) for a 2-year fellowship program. The primary goal of the fellowship program is to train psychologists to become leading clinical recovery-oriented, clinician-scientists with a focus on serious mental illness and personality disorders in veterans.  MIRECC researchers investigate the domains of reality testing, cognitive function and aggression/impulse regulation in the categorical serious mental illness diagnoses of Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder. Our mission is to pursue a discovery-to-recovery approach for serious mental illness by determining causes, identifying predictors, and developing treatments that overcome barriers and enable recovery.


Program Description: This interdisciplinary program aims to train clinicians to become outstanding clinical researchers in high priority areas of mental health. Individualized, mentored research and clinical training is combined with a curriculum that emphasizes research methods, statistics, epidemiology, mental health systems, quality improvement methods, education, and service delivery. Training in professional skills includes manuscript preparation; grant writing, project management, and the responsible conduct of research.  Fellowship sites are linked electronically for didactic, academic, and research efforts. Fellows devote the majority of their time to patient-oriented research and education activities and 25% to direct patient clinical care (although this is flexible). In collaboration with their mentors, Fellows will develop and implement a research project, publish and present findings, participate in grant writing, and utilize the latest technology for educational activities and clinical service delivery.


Training is combined with a state-of-the-art curriculum that emphasizes research methods, statistics, epidemiology, mental health systems, quality improvement methods, education, and service delivery. Fellowship sites are linked electronically for didactic, academic, and research efforts. The basic requirements of the fellowship includes two first-author papers of original research, a research program that is to be developed with their mentor, and the preparation of a career development award toward the end of the fellowship. In collaboration with their mentors, Fellows will develop and implement a research project, publish and present findings, participate in grant writing, and utilize the latest technology for educational activities and clinical service delivery.


The opportunities for training will reside in the research, clinical, and educational programs at the JJPVA of the MIRECC and the affiliate hospital, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City, typically within the Department of Psychiatry. Fellow’s primary appointment will be at the JJPVA Medical Center in the Bronx, NY and will also receive an appointment at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY. The MIRECC research programs are internationally recognized in a broad range of research areas including cognitive neuroscience, electrophysiology, neuropsychology, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), psychosocial interventions, cognitive remediation, psychiatric rehabilitation, clinical psychopharmacology, health services, and implementation science.   The Director and the MIRECC faculty have a strong commitment to translational research that links basic science to clinical research and clinical research to services research.


Eligibility: Eligible psychologists (or associated clinicians) must be U.S. citizens. They must have graduated from an American Psychological Association (APA) accredited doctoral program in clinical or counseling psychology (or an equivalent program in another discipline). Completion of an APA accredited internship in clinical or counseling psychology is also required.

Faculty: Fellowship faculty members (and their research interests) include:

Larry Siever, M.D. is the Chief of Psychiatry and Director of the MIRECC at the JJ Peters VAMC. Dr. Siever studies the etiology of the schizophrenia spectrum and affect and impulsive aggression regulation in serious mental illness.


William Byne, M.D., Ph.D. employs a variety of postmortem histological and in vivo neuroimaging techniques to examine brain structure and function in serious mental illness and has recently initiated a pharmacological trial in schizophrenia.


Lisa Dixon, M.D., MPH conducts health services research that focuses on improving the quality of care for persons with SMI including increasing metabolic monitoring, reducing smoking, increasing consumer-driven family involvement in care, and reducing disability among persons who are early in the course of a psychotic illness.


Stella Dracheva (Plevan), Ph.D. investigates the role of mRNA editing and epigenetic regulation (DNA methylation and histone modifications) in suicide and other psychiatric conditions using postmortem human brain specimens and/or animal models as well as state of the art methodologies (e.g., RNA-Seq, CHIP-Seq, Infinium 450K Methylation array).


Marianne Goodman, M.D. directs the Dialectical Behavioral Therapy clinical and research program and suicide prevention treatment program.


Vahram Haroutunian, Ph.D. uses postmortem human brain and genetically modified mouse model systems we study the neurobiology of serious mental illness with a strong, albeit not exclusive, emphasis on schizophrenia and molecular biological and genetic techniques.


Erin Hazlett, Ph.D.‘s research uses neuroimaging and psychophysiological approaches to examine the neurobiology of attention and emotion processing abnormalities in schizophrenia-spectrum disorders and borderline personality disorder.


Bruce Levine, M.D. focuses on the implementation of the full spectrum of evidence based, recovery oriented practice: assessment and diagnosis, treatment partnership, psychotherapies and psychosocial interventions, and psychopharmacological treatments.


Antonia New, M.D.’s research foci are on suicide in veterans, emotion dysregulation resulting in symptoms such as impulsive aggression and borderline personality disorder as well as the individual differences in response to stress and trauma, focusing on how this relates to emotion regulation.


How to Apply: Interested psychologists (or associated clinicians) who meet the eligibility requirements should send a cover letter and curriculum vita via email to fellowship director Margaret.McNamara@mssm.edu.  The cover letter should specify the reasons for your interest in this particular fellowship training program, a brief overview of your previous clinical and research experiences, and how you see this program promoting your professional and career goals. Our fellowship is an equal opportunity training program.
