The National Center for Child Traumatic Stress (NCCTS) is recruiting for a postdoctoral fellow to play a central role in data collection and evaluation activities. The NCCTS, a joint endeavor of UCLA and Duke University, serves as the coordinating center for the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN). The NCTSN is funded by the Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS)/Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and is comprised of sites throughout the United States who are working collaboratively to improve quality of care for children who have experienced trauma.
