McLean Hospital, America’s top ranked freestanding psychiatric hospital, is inviting applications for adult and child-adolescent psychiatrists for the McLean SouthEast (MSE) campus in Middleborough, MA.

Adult Psychiatrist positions include inpatient staff psychiatrist and medical directors for two new units:

  • A psychotic disorders inpatient unit that will be a key component of the McLean Psychotic Disorders Division, led by Dost Ongur, M.D., Ph.D. (editor of JAMA Psychiatry, Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and Chief, McLean Psychotic Disorders Division) and Joe Stoklosa, M.D. (Clinical Director of the McLean Psychotic Disorders Division and proponent of innovative Open Dialogue rounds).
  • A depression-anxiety disorders unit that will treat people experiencing suicidality and life crises, and will be a key component of the McLean Depression, Anxiety and Trauma Division led by Kerry Ressler, M.D., Ph.D. ( McLean’s Chief Scientific Officer and Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School) and Jane Eisen, M.D. (Clinical Director of the McLean Depression, Anxiety, and Trauma Division and Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School).
  • These two units will be closely integrated with each other and with existing McLean SouthEast (MSE) adult inpatient and partial hospital services and will include clinical measurement initiatives and related research.

Child -Adolescent Psychiatrist positions include inpatient staff psychiatrists on a new adolescent unit:

  • This unit will be part of the extensive McLean Child & Adolescent Division, led by Dr. Joseph Gold, McLean’s Chief Medical Officer, Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, that includes McLean’s child and adolescent inpatient unit and young children’s CBAT at the Franciscan Children’s Hospital, the 3East Intensive DBT continuum at Germaine Lawrence, the McLean Arlington School, a therapeutic high school, Pathways Academy for students with high-functioning autism, the Belmont adolescent partial hospital, the McLean OCD Institute for children and adolescents, the McLean Anxiety Mastery Program (MAMP) and other outpatient clinics at Sancta Maria, school consultation programs, and the existing MSE set of services. The latter already include an adolescent acute residential treatment (ART) unit, an adolescent partial hospital, our MA child psychiatry access project (MCPAP) site providing consultative support to pediatricians in Southeastern MA, the Cape & Islands, and a school nurse program.
  • This new McLean SouthEast (MSE) adolescent unit will be well integrated with these other Child & Adolescent Division programs and MSE services and will work closely with Daniel Dickstein, M.D., Ph.D., McLean’s Director of Research, Child & Adolescent Division, Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, who will be central to shaping the clinical measurement at this site.

These positions combine clinical care and teaching, with Harvard Medical School appointments. We encourage both Adult Psychiatry and Child & Adolescent Psychiatry trained candidates to apply. Salary and recruitment package in accordance with Hospital policies, and a Harvard Medical School (HMS) appointment at the academic rank of Lecturer, Instructor or Assistant Professor will be commensurate with HMS appointment criteria, meeting the minimum teaching requirement, and candidate qualifications.

Applicants should submit a letter of interest and curriculum vitae along with the names and addresses of three references to Joseph Gold, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, McLean Hospital, 115 Mill Street, Belmont, MA 02478 [email:; note the “one” after jgold].
