University of Michigan, Mary A. Rackham Institute
Ann Arbor, Michigan

Starts on Friday, September 1, 2023

Applications due Thursday, December 15, 2022

We will be recruiting up to 3 postdoctoral positions for 2023-24. Notification regarding whether the available slots will be for child, adult or both tracks will be recruited will be posted by mid November on our website. Child/family fellowship slots may be general child clinical or have a combination of Autism-Spectrum Disorder (ASD)-focus and general child clinical. 

The University of Michigan Mary A. Rackham Institute Postdoctoral Fellowship Training Program is designed to provide advanced training in professional psychology to qualified postdoctoral psychologists. Training is based in either the Psychological Clinic, a multidisciplinary training-focused adult outpatient center, or the University Center for the Child and Family, a comparable clinic serving children and families. Both clinics have a welcoming and supportive atmosphere, and both have the option for a hybrid work environment where the fellow works part time on site and part time virtually. The training prepares fellows for state licensure through a one year full time program that provides robust, advanced training in many key professional competencies (two year option is available by mutual consent). These competencies include assessment and diagnosis, psychological testing, intervention including individual and couples therapy, consultation and interdisciplinary collaboration, multicultural competencies, clinical teaching and supervision, professionalism, ethical and legal standards, and leadership/administrative skills. These competencies are enhanced through direct clinical service with supervision from expert clinicians, participation in seminars and clinical meetings and conferences, consultation with other professionals outside the Clinic, supervision of clinical work conducted by social work and psychology students, and participation in senior staff meetings. ASD-concentrations in the child fellowship may include both ASD diagnostic evaluations and intervention (psychotherapy, onsite or in-home/in-school ABA) with possibility of hours accrual toward BCBA licensure.
