Job Summary

Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS) at the University of Colorado Boulder invites applications for a one-year, full-time Post-Doctoral Psychology Fellow! The start date will be August 7, 2023. We have three positions available, each focusing on clinical services, with different areas of concentration. Applicants may apply for more than one position. In your cover letter, please identify the positions for which you would like to be considered and how your qualifications align with each position.

These positions are open to candidates who have completed all of their doctoral graduate work in Clinical or Counseling Psychology and who need supervised psychotherapy experience to acquire licensure. Administrative supervision is provided by the Postdoctoral Fellowship Coordinator. Clinical supervision is provided by an assigned licensed psychologist. These positions do not have formal supervisory duties.

All of the post-doctoral psychology fellows will assist with providing direct clinical services. This includes direct psychotherapy services, performing group and individual psychotherapy and case management, initial therapy assessment, and crisis intervention. Opportunities may exist for fellows to forego a track and instead complete a generalist position as a postdoctoral fellow for all 3 opportunities. Each of these three tracks will also facilitate at least one therapy group each semester.

Our first position focuses on providing crisis care and triage. In this role, the candidate will provide non-urgent brief screening sessions and triage screening sessions to CU Boulder students. This position also provides post-hospital case management sessions, co-facilitates an intensive DBT group, and maintains a caseload of generalist clients. The Crisis Care Postdoctoral Psychology Fellow will work closely with the Crisis/Triage Team Manager in learning about clinical systems and the development of clinical programs.

Our second position focuses on working with diverse populations. This Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) track position provides outreach and clinical services to multi-culturally diverse and historically under-represented student populations. The DEI Post-Doctoral Psychology Fellow develops relationships with campus partners to develop strategies for best serving underrepresented students. This position is for a candidate who possesses a strong theoretical understanding of multicultural issues in mental health and has experience working with diverse student populations..

Our third position focuses on the CAPS Counselor-in-Residence (CIR) program. This position will spend part of their time in the residence halls to address the mental health concerns of residents and to support Residence Life staff; developing responsive, preventative mental health programming based on community needs; providing psycho-education to Residence Life staff on mental health topics; and fostering relationships with staff and residents. The role will also be attending the weekly Residence Life staff meeting, assisting the CAPS Residence Life Coordinator with programming, and providing training to new staff members. The CIR Postdoctoral Psychology Fellow carries a generalist caseload at CAPS and conducts initial triage/screening appointments as well as crisis assessment and intervention.

The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to building a culturally diverse community of faculty, staff, and students dedicated to contributing to an inclusive campus environment. We are an Equal Opportunity employer, including veterans and individuals with disabilities.
