I was wondering if anybody had any information on how a forensic psychologist who qualifies in the UK would go about finding work in the USA. I am about to start my masters in the UK after which i will apply for trainee psychologist posts and I have psychology experience in two Forensic settings.

I would love to get some work in California at some stage, however it seems that the prisons over there recruit clinical psychologists and not forensic ones. Would I need to train again in order to be qualified to work in the USA and what are the opportunities available there to a forensic psychologist?
