2020-2021 Postdoctoral Fellowship Position Announcement


Purpose: There are three fellowship positions available: 2 General Studies and 1 Social Justice.

The purpose of the 3 postdoctoral fellowships is to provide advanced training for those who have completed a psychology internship in a college or university counseling center or a similar agency.  The postdoctoral experience requires participants to be involved in the full range of psychological activities that professional staff members engage in and it also allows for the development of specialized skills in areas that relate to counseling center work. There are required activities including individual counseling, triage appointments, outreach, and after-hours emergency coverage. The generalist postdoctoral fellowship focuses on the aforementioned mentioned activities, with the opportunity to develop advanced skills and knowledge in an area of professional interest. The social justice postdoctoral fellowship is structured to provide advanced training with a specific emphasis on social justice and diversity. The social justice postdoctoral fellow will develop outreach and consultative relationships and activities that dovetail with the objectives of our center and those of our Division of Student Life related to social justice and inclusivity.  If you are applying to the social justice postdoctoral position, please address this in your cover letter, including any specific populations or topics you are interested in pursuing.

In addition to a 40-hour work week, periodic evening and weekend work will be expected. This is a full-time position, available July 15, 2020 through July 14, 2021. 

Requirements: Applications are invited from persons who will complete their doctoral degree in counseling or clinical psychology prior to the fellowship start date.  A doctorate from an APA-approved psychology program and an APA-approved internship are preferred.  The successful applicant should demonstrate a commitment to evidence-based, culturally responsive treatment and an interest in university counseling center work and college student development. A strong background and training in intersecting identities, power and privilege, and social justice preferred.

Setting: The Center is a multi-disciplinary unit that is accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services and sponsors a doctoral internship in psychology that is accredited by the American Psychological Association.  The current staff consists of 15 psychologists, two psychiatrists, a referral coordinator, four doctoral interns, two postdoctoral fellows, and five support staff.

Applications close: We will begin to review applications 1/20/20.  Applications received after that date may be reviewed as well.
