CPS Post-Doctoral Psychology Fellowship

Fordham University Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS) will offer three postdoctoral fellowship positions for the 2020-2021 academic year, two at the Rose Hill Campus and one at the Lincoln Center Campus. The 12-month fellowship will commence on or around August 17, 2020. The fellowship carries a stipend of $40,000, full university benefits (described in detail below) and fully meets the licensure requirement of supervised postdoctoral hours in New York and many other states. We emphasize generalist practice from a social justice-centered and relational psychodynamic perspective, while allowing fellows to develop additional expertise in an administrative area relevant to university counseling (e.g., training and supervision, group therapy, outreach/prevention).

Fordham CPS is committed to diversifying our staff and to increasing diversity in the field through quality training. We welcome and encourage applications from individuals from all religious backgrounds, racial/ethnic minority individuals, immigrants and international students, LGBTQ and gender-expansive individuals, second-career/non-traditional-age applicants, individuals with disabilities, and others who are historically underrepresented in the mental health fields.
