There are (2) post doctoral fellowships available beginning August 2023.  Posting closes 12/15/2022.

The Post-Doctoral Psychology Fellow develops a working knowledge of providing counseling services within a university counseling center and within a Student Affairs context while engaging in required levels of supervision, seminars and Center services.

Postdoctoral fellows will engage in activities including:

• Time-effective individual counseling

.• Group counseling and psycho-educational workshops.

• Program development and outreach programming.

• Consultation regarding developmental and psychological/ emotional health issues.

• Campus training (in conjunction with Counseling Center staff).

• Crisis intervention and after-hours on-call services (as back-up to Proto-Call).  

• A consultation project in an area of interest (consistent with Counseling Center needs).

Fellows are expected to engage in services for a diverse client base and diverse campus organizations. Respect for cultural, intellectual, psycho-social and interpersonal differences is expected to inform the Fellow’s practice. In addition, depending on individual interests and Center needs, opportunities may also exist for additional administrative duties or structured experiences outside the Center to better understand the role and function of university psychologists within Student Affairs and the university community.  Fellows will receive training and supervision designed to prepare them for a broad range of roles within a university counseling center and professional psychology. The program is intended to provide the experience required for licensure in North Carolina and in most states (2000 hours). Fellows are encouraged to be attentive to the requirements of the Licensure Boards for the locales in which they plan to practice.  Postdoctoral Fellows will receive a minimum of 2 hours of clinical supervision per week while engaging in training seminars, case conferences, on-call rotation (including some Holiday coverage), and other staff activities.
