The Student Counseling Center at the University of Pennsylvania is accepting applications for its Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship (four openings).   The fellowship is a one-year appointment starting August 1, 2023, ending July 31, 2024.  Fellows participate in all areas of the center’s clinical services and receive advanced training in providing drop-in counseling, crisis intervention, scheduled initial assessments, short-term individual and group psychotherapy, and outreach/prevention programs.  Fellows are encouraged to pursue a specialization, receiving mentorship in areas such as working with BIPOC, LGBTQ, and other marginalized populations, outreach/prevention, sexual trauma, eating concerns, and liaison to the Athletics Department.  The fellowship fulfills all supervised clinical experience requirements for licensure as a psychologist in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. 


The University of Pennsylvania is a world-renowned leader in education, research, and innovation. This historic, Ivy League school consistently ranks among the top 10 universities in the annual U.S. News & World Report survey. Penn has 12 highly regarded schools providing opportunities for undergraduate, graduate and continuing education, all influenced by Penn’s distinctive interdisciplinary approach to scholarship and learning.  Student Counseling is a multidisciplinary setting embedded in the Wellness Center and collaborates with Student Health and Campus Health to offer a range of services to the University of Pennsylvania student community.


Applicants must provide documentation that they have completed, or are on track to complete, their APA-accredited doctoral internship in psychology and their doctorate in counseling or clinical psychology from an APA-accredited program by August 1, 2023.


Preference is given to candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to working in university counseling, particularly within a multicultural and social justice framework. Experience providing outreach and prevention services within a diverse community is also desirable.


The fellowship provides a stipend of $54,840 (may increase for 2023-24), fully paid health insurance, 10 vacation days in addition to bonus days off from Christmas to New Year’s, 15 days of sick leave, and 5 additional days of paid time off for approved professional development activities.
