Post-Doctoral Fellowship at Eastern Michigan University Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

EMU offers two post doctoral fellowship positions in clinical/counseling psychology at Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) located at Snow Health Center. These are 12 month positions starting on August 17, 2015. 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, and provide several emergency walk-in hours during the course of the week. Fellows will 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 an individual graduate student, present on various mental health topics during the training seminar series, and provide additional assistance with supervising trainees as determined by the director. Fellows will have opportunities to serve as consultants to the EMU community. Fellows will receive two hours of individual supervision for clinical cases and supervision for the fellow’s supervision of his/her graduate trainee. Additional administrative duties are expected such as engaging in client assignment and participating in staff peer supervision meetings.

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.  Eastern Michigan University is in the Mid-American Conference (MAC) division with a population of approximately 23,000 students. In terms of the client population seen at CAPS, there is significant diversity in terms of age, ethnicity, SES, and other social identities. Thus, candidates must value diversity and be able to be sensitive to diversity issues. Additionally, clinical work is usually conducted utilizing a short-term therapy model. 

Applications are due on or before April 16th, 2015 and should be submitted through emich.edu/jobs.   Questions can be directed to the Coordinator of Post-Doctoral Training, Dr. Oscar Alcaine, via email at oalcaine@emich.edu.
