Universal Psychology Postdoctoral Directory

The APPIC Selection Guidelines indicate that agreements between postdoctoral programs and postdoctoral applicants are considered professional agreements, and our expectation is that both programs and students will exhaust all efforts to preserve their professional commitments. However, we acknowledge that there may be extreme circumstances related to the COVID pandemic.

The UPPD has been modified to use the Unfilled Position function for programs to list unexpected COVID-related open positions in addition to unfilled positions following the UND.

This temporary modification of the UPPD will remain in place until 9/1/20. At that time, the unfilled position field will be cleared, and all UPPD listings should reflect only positions being recruited for the 2021/2022 academic year.

The Universal Psychology Postdoctoral Directory (UPPD) is a directory of postdoctoral training programs.

APPIC has developed the UPPD as a free service to the psychology postdoctoral training community of programs and applicants. It is available to all postdoctoral training programs, including non-APPIC member training programs.

The UPPD is intended to assist postdoctoral applicants become aware of postdoctoral training opportunities in the U.S. and Canada. Its goal is to provide a one-stop shop for applicants to learn about postdoctoral opportunities.

APPIC does not endorse the quality of any programs listed in the UPPD or the accuracy of information provided by Training Directors in the UPPD.
