Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Psychology
Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Psychology (Manhattan and Rockland County)
Update as of March 22nd, 2021: Center for Anxiety no longer has postdoctoral fellowship positions available for 2021-22. Please check back on this page in Fall, 2021 for information about our 2022-23 program.
Our postdoctoral fellowship is intended for graduates of psychology doctoral programs who have completed all of their doctoral coursework and clinical requirements and are seeking supervised clinical hours in order to meet requirements for licensure. Our program places an emphasis on comprehensive clinical training experience that offers both breadth and depth in evidence-based clinical practice. Fellows spend at least 50% of their time providing clinical services to adults, adolescents, and/or children within the Center for Anxiety’s outpatient and intensive outpatient programs. This work provides fellows with broad experience in evidence-based practice with a clinically diverse patient population presenting across a range of acuity. Over the course of the year, trainees build foundational clinical skills and competencies that are necessary for independent professional practice. Fellows receive at least one hour of individual supervision, one hour of weekly rounds, DBT consultation team, two hours of didactic training, and ad hoc consultation as needed with members of our supervisory and/or clinical administrative staff.
All fellows receive a comprehensive compensation package including competitive salary (W2), medical benefits, paid time off (for vacations and/or dissertation work), generous funding for professional development, comprehensive and fully paid malpractice insurance, reimbursement for employee fitness and cellular phones, and paid parental leave. Professional development is a focus of the training year, and fellows receive guidance as well as potential opportunities for career building after their fellowship experience. Our training year for postdoctoral fellows starts on September 1st, 2021 and ends August 31st, 2022, however, exceptions for an early/late start date may be accommodated in certain cases. Postdoctoral fellows at the Center for Anxiety are full-time positions. Applicants for part-time positions will be considered, however such applications are generally less competitive.
Application requirements include a doctoral degree (ABD applicants will be considered), a year-long clinical internship in clinical, counseling or school psychology, strong diagnostic skills including experience with structured clinical assessments, extensive experience and expertise in providing interventions for anxiety and other disorders to adults, adolescents and/or children, and most of all a commitment to provide the highest standards of evidence-based psychotherapy grounded in the methods of clinical science.
The Center for Anxiety and our training programs strongly value diversity and this value is explicitly reflected across multiple areas of the training experience. The training program makes efforts to create an equitable, inclusive, and affirming learning environment. We also provide equal opportunity to all prospective trainees and staff, and do not discriminate due to a person’s age, disability, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, language, national origin, race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, social economic status, or other factors that are not predictive of or related to success as a postdoctoral fellow.
Applications are being accepted currently and will continue to be reviewed on a rolling basis until the positions are filled. To apply please send the following directly to our Director of Clinical Training, Dr. Marcia Kimeldorf at email@example.com.
