The selected candidate will have demonstrable experience with aspects of behavioral treatment, issues, and techniques with psychological conditions of most relevance to the military (e.g., trauma as a result of combat and/or sexual assault, suicide risk assessment and intervention, substance misuse, etc.). Although not an absolute requirement, the ideal candidate will have experience with military healthcare.
