Neuropsychological functioning of pedophilic men and sexual offenders

Dr. James Cantor of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH; Toronto, Canada) is seeking applicants for a two-year, full-time Postdoctoral Research Fellowship. The Fellow will participate in neuropsychological and psychological assessment of persons with paraphilias, atypical sexual interests, or histories of sexual offending. 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 research protocols for implementation in the Kurt Freund Laboratory for phallometry. The Fellowship is ideal for those seeking research opportunities and experience in sexology, forensic psychology, assessment, or applied neuropsychology.

The CIHR-funded 12-month stipend is $40,000 (Canadian; $40,388 U.S.), plus a conference allowance for both years of the Fellowship. Clinical experience and supervision can be arranged for recent doctorates seeking to fulfill the requirements for psychology licensure in Ontario (called “registration” by the College of Psychologists of Ontario).

The starting date is flexible, but preferred to be between January and May, 2012. All degree requirements must be completed before taking up the Fellowship. To apply, submit a coverletter describing your range of interests and career goals, a c.v., up to three reprints, and although letters of reference are not required, include the contact information for three professional references. Electronic submissions and inquiries may be sent to [email protected].

Deadline for applications is 1 December 2011.
