Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Psychology


Be a part of a team that truly makes a difference

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. 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. 

Qualifications of applicants must include all of the following:

  1. A doctoral degree (ABD applicants will be considered)
  2. A year-long clinical internship in clinical, counseling or school psychology
  3. Strong diagnostic skills including experience with structured clinical assessments
  4. Extensive experience and expertise in providing interventions for anxiety and other disorders to adults, adolescents and/or children
  5. 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 psychologytraining@centerforanxiety.org

  1. A cover letter (specifying which locations you are applying to or whether you’d like to be considered for more than one)
  2. CV
  3. At least two letters of reference to psychologytraining@centerforanxiety.org.

Culture Quotes

 

“Center for Anxiety brought me all the way from my internship in Las Vegas, NV, four years ago, and I am so glad I made the move both geographically and professionally. I’ve been privileged to watch the organization grow from grassroots private practice to a world-renown treatment center that caters to a diverse range of mental health needs. Not only anxiety!”

“Center for Anxiety is a wonderful place to work. All of our clinicians are warm, caring, and truly dedicated to helping patients improve their mental health. And, there are endless opportunities to contribute in creative and impactful ways. In previous jobs I’ve had, it was so hard to get anything new created; at CFA, the sky is the limit. All staff ideas are considered, and staff are empowered to make improvements that benefit our team or our patients (e.g. starting another psychotherapy group, creating another program, offering a support group).”
