Position Description
Emory University Counseling Center
Post-Graduate Fellowships in University Mental Health
**Search Re-opened**

The Emory University Counseling Center is pleased to announce two twelve-month, full-time Postdoctoral Fellowships; the starting date for the Fellowships is August 1, 2013. Each Fellow has the opportunity to enhance and deepen his or her skills in brief and longer-term psychotherapy, crisis intervention, diagnostic interviewing, teaching, supervision, outreach and consultation. Along with their training experiences in the Counseling Center, Postdoctoral Fellows also spend approximately one day each week working in the Faculty Staff Assistance Program (FSAP), which provides outreach, clinical services, organizational intervention and consultation to Emoryís 20,000+ employees and their families.

Fellows at the Emory Counseling Center receive intensive, supportive training, which is designed to prepare Fellows for the diversity of roles which psychologists and social workers assume in their career paths. It is expected that Post-graduate Fellows will work with a variety of clients, cultural backgrounds, presenting problems and treatment modalities. In addition, each Fellow has the opportunity to work with an identified Specialty Supervisor in order to focus his or her training on a particular area of clinical interest. Selections for the Fellowships are made without discrimination based on race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, age, disability, sexual/affectional orientation, or veteran’s status.

The 2000 hour Postdoctoral Fellowship meets or exceeds all requirements for psychology licensure in the State of Georgia, including a minimum of 500 direct service hours and more than 2 hours per week of individual supervision with a licensed psychologist. Applicants for the Postdoctoral Fellowship should have graduated from an APA-accredited Clinical Psychology or Counseling Psychology doctoral program before the start of the Fellowship. Applicants whose transcript does not indicate that the doctoral degree has been conferred by their university by the application deadline should provide documentation from their graduate faculty that all requirements for the doctorate, including coursework, the dissertation and the predoctoral internship, are expected to be completed by the August 1st start date.
Fellows receive the same health and dental insurance benefits as regular, full-time staff, and have access to University library and computer facilities. There is a fitness center on campus which Fellows may use for a low annual fee. Fellows receive twelve days of paid vacation, eleven University holidays, 12 sick days, a $300 professional development fund (to assist with conference/workshop attendance costs), and one week of professional or educational leave. The stipend for the Postdoctoral Fellowship year is $32, 000; the Post-MSW Fellowship stipend for the year is $28,000.
Applicants should forward a letter of application (including a statement of professional goals for the Postdoctoral Fellowship), Curriculum Vita, three letters of reference, and official graduate transcript(s) to the address below. Application materials should be sent in one packet, if possible. The Emory Counseling Center Postdoctoral Fellowship program holds membership in the Association of Postdoctoral and Psychology Internship (APPIC) and adheres to APPIC regulations regarding selection and notification of applicants.
Review of application materials is ongoing, and applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
