Join our counseling team at CU Boulder! Social Work Post-Masters Fellowships are open to applicants who have completed a Master’s Degree in Social Work (by August 2021) and who need supervised clinical experience to obtain licensure. The positions provide direct clinical services including walk-in services, intake, individual and group psychotherapy, behavioral health interventions and crisis intervention to students. Services may be provided in person and/or over telehealth depending on the status and needs of the clinic. Positions are a 40-hour/week, two-year commitment. Training for Fellows includes regular seminars on specific mental health topics, weekly multidisciplinary case consultation, and 90 minutes of weekly supervision with an LCSW. All Fellows also attend CAPS staff meetings and trainings.

The ideal candidate is a recent MSW graduate who has an educational background in evidenced-based psychotherapy practices and whose goal is to acquire clinical/supervision hours for licensure. The candidate should also have relevant and significant clinical experience, providing direct psychotherapy services, including crisis intervention and group therapy. CAPS provides psychotherapy services in a brief therapy model, thus the ideal candidate should have interest in utilizing short term interventions. We are looking for fellows who are interested in working on a multidisciplinary team, who are familiar with electronic medical records, and who are comfortable with managing a fast-paced clinical schedule.

The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to building a culturally diverse community of faculty, staff, and students dedicated to contributing to an inclusive campus environment. We are an Equal Opportunity employer, including veterans and individuals with disabilities.

As one of 34 U.S. public research institutions belonging to the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU)—and the only member in the Rocky Mountain region—our goal at CU Boulder is to directly affect Colorado communities through collaborative research, innovation and entrepreneurship. Our faculty, staff and students work with the broader community to establish unique connections that have lasting outcomes—both across Colorado and around the world.

  • Completion of a Master of Social Work degree (MSW).
  • MSW in pursuit of licensure.
  • Previous experience diagnosing, treating, and delivering services to a college student population.
  • At least two years’ experience providing clinical services.
  • Crisis intervention experience.
  • Group therapy experience.
  • Strong desire to work in a university counseling center.
Starting Salary is $31,000.
