Be a part of a team that truly makes a difference
Update as of July 26, 2022: Center for Anxiety has a postdoctoral fellow position available in the Brooklyn office location.
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. 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.
Specific responsibilities of the Postdoctoral Fellow include:
- 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
- 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

- 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
- A willingness and capacity to handle high risk cases on an outpatient and intensive outpatient basis

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.Applicants should send a letter of interest, current Curriculum Vitae, and names of 2-3 references to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants are asked to please specify in their cover letters which of our sites are geographically feasible, and which is most preferred (note that we anticipate adopting a hybrid remote/in-person model for 2021-2022, and staff will be on site 2-3 days per week).
