Post-Doctoral Fellowship at Eastern Michigan University Counseling and Psychological Sciences



Post Doctoral Fellowship

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) offers two post doctoral fellowship positions in clinical/counseling psychology. These are 12 month, full-time positions starting in August 2014. The fellowship provides an intensive clinical experience where fellows are expected to carry a caseload of individual clients, participate as a facilitator in group therapy, provide consultation to the EMU community, and provide several emergency walk-in hours. Fellows will also have opportunities to provide outreach programs to the EMU community aimed at prevention, detection, and education regarding mental health issues. In addition, fellows will be responsible for supervising a master's level practicum student, presenting on various mental health topics during the training seminar series, and providing additional assistance with the supervision of practicum trainees through case conferences. Fellows will receive two hours of individual supervision for their respective clinical cases and will also receive supervision on the supervision of their respective graduate trainee. Additional supervision for the fellows occurs during staff peer supervision meetings and meetings with the CAPS director and the post-doctoral training coordinator.

Successful candidates must be able to work comfortably both individually and as team members. The fellowship is designed to enhance the clinical skills and facilitate the professional identity development of the fellow within a college mental health setting. Given the student heterogeneity at EMU, candidates must be sensitive to diversity issues. Additionally, candidates must be able to engage in clinical work utilizing a short-term therapy model.

Application materials will be due by March 23rd, 2014 and should include a cover letter, a curriculum vita, and contact information for three references. Interested candidates should have met the requirements of their clinical or counseling psychology doctoral program prior to their start date. Additionally, it is preferred that candidates will have completed an APA-accredited internship. Interested candidates can direct questions to the post-doctoral training coordinator, Dr. Oscar Alcaine (oalcaine@emich.edu). Candidates can apply at the following URL:
