The Counseling & Health Services (C&HS) office is an integrated medical and mental health clinic, guided by an ethic of holistic wellness for clients and staff alike. The purpose of the post-doctoral fellowship is to provide varied learning opportunities within a supportive work environment, and thereby facilitate a smooth transition from trainee to autonomous professional.  Upon completion of this one year, full-time position, the post-doctoral counselor will be fully prepared to obtain licensure as a psychologist in the state of Minnesota.  

The post-doctoral fellowship affords opportunities to work closely with a multi-disciplinary team of 4 psychologists, a physician assistant, a nurse practitioner, an RN, a medical assistant, a part-time family practice physician, and a part-time psychiatrist.  Counseling services are delivered primarily in an individual format, but the post-doctoral counselor will also have opportunities to provide group counseling, couples counseling, crisis intervention, outreach, and consultation to members of the university community.  Training for the fellowship includes one hour of weekly individual supervision, and one hour of weekly group case consultation.


Founded in 1854, Hamline was Minnesota's first university, and was among the first co-educational institutions in the nation.  Hamline remains rooted in the values and traditions of the United Methodist Church, which include a commitment to liberal education, civic engagement, social justice, and inclusive leadership and service.  The Hamline campus is within close proximity of many urban amenities via light-rail public transit, including the downtown districts of both Minneapolis and St. Paul.  In addition to undergraduate programs, Hamline also has graduate programs in business, education, and creative writing, for a total enrollment of over 4,000 students.  Thirty-eight percent of Hamline’s undergraduate population are first-generation college students, and one-third are students of color.


Eligible candidates will have completed all degree requirements for a doctorate in counseling or clinical psychology from an APA-accredited program (including dissertation defense) prior to the start date of the fellowship. 


Competitive applicants will have demonstrated a strong interest and prior experience working with college student populations.  Preference will be given to individuals who have completed an APA-accredited internship.


Compensation for this position includes a salary of $33,000 and full benefits (medical, dental, long-term disability, 403(b), vacation, paid holidays, and sick time). The last three months of the fellowship will include time for work on an independent project, and release time for licensure examination preparation.
