The Post-Doctoral Psychology Resident at the Student Counseling Center is a full-time 12- month position (1.0 FTE). It is our intent to provide an entry-level professional with the post-degree supervision and experience necessary for licensure as a psychologist. The Resident will provide culturally responsive mental health assessment, counseling, and consultation services to undergraduate, law, and graduate students in support of student success. More specifically they will offer (1) time-limited individual, couples, and group counseling, (2) crisis/urgent counseling, (3) consultation services and outreach programming, and (4) supervision and training for graduate practicum students. Service provision includes face-to-face and tele-mental health services with students regarding concerns relating to stress, developmental issues, career, academics, interpersonal concerns, trauma and other mental health conditions. The Resident will also participate in organizational and clinical staff meetings and other university-wide meetings as appropriate. Further, the Resident may gain additional experience in areas such as administrative leadership, clinical services development, psycho-educational outreach, sexual assault advocacy and response, and/or substance abuse interventions and harm reduction.

We are committed to developing our staff to more fully reflect the diversity of our student body and the society at large. Members of historically underrepresented groups in mental health professions are strongly encouraged to apply. 

The Student Counseling Center has made a commitment to prioritize belonging and connection both among our staff and with colleagues across campus. We strive to maintain an interpersonally healthy, supportive, and positive environment, we value training and growth, and we're looking for a colleague who will thrive in this setting.
