Positions in Counseling Centers

Position Title
Postdoctoral Fellows (three)

University
University of Delaware

Department
Center for Counseling and Student Development

Salary Range
$33,150

Position Description
The purpose of the postdoctoral fellowship is to provide advanced training for those who have completed a psychology internship in a college or university counseling center or a similar agency. The postdoctoral experience requires participants to be involved in the full range of psychological activities that professional staff members engage in and it also allows for the development of specialized skills in areas that relate to counseling center work. While there are required activities (individual counseling, intake assessments, and after-hours emergency coverage), fellows have the opportunity to work with a mentor/advisor in an area of professional interest. This work should involve the development of advanced skills and knowledge and can focus on research, clinical work, and teaching.

This is a full-time position, available August 16, 2013 through July 31, 2014. The salary is $33,150 plus basic student health insurance, dental coverage, and support for professional travel. Fellows have access to the University’s libraries, e-mail, Internet, recreational facilities, and cultural and athletic events.

The Center is a multi-disciplinary unit that is accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services and sponsors a predoctoral internship in psychology that is accredited by the American Psychological Association. The current staff consists of 12 psychologists, two psychiatrists, four predoctoral interns, three postdoctoral fellows, and five support staff.

Applicants are encouraged to reference the Center website (www.udel.edu/counseling) for more detailed information.

Minimum Qualifications
Applications are invited from persons who will complete their doctoral degree in counseling or clinical psychology prior to the fellowship start date. The successful applicant should demonstrate a professional commitment and interest in university counseling center work and college student development.

Desired Qualifications
A doctorate from an APA-approved psychology program and an APA-approved internship are preferred.
