The Austin Child Guidance Center offers a full-time postdoctoral fellowship in child/adolescent psychology. Our program is not a part of the APPIC Postdoctoral Selection Process, but we will follow many of their guidelines and recommendations.
Training goals for postdoctoral fellows at Austin Child Guidance Center include the development of proficiency in:
- Child/adolescent assessment given a range of presenting concerns (e.g., learning disabilities, ADHD, trauma, autism-spectrum disorders);
- Evidence-based psychotherapy with children, adolescents, and families;
- Working collaboratively with an interdisciplinary treatment team, and
- Developing supervision skills. Other goals (e.g., developing group therapy skills, assessment of autism-spectrum disorders) are chosen by the fellow and his/her supervisor at the outset of the postdoctoral fellowship year.
The doctoral postdoctoral fellowship will begin August 31, 2022 and continue for 12 months at 40 hours per week. Vacation and sick leave are provided, as well as employee health insurance.
Candidates should submit a letter of interest, a curriculum vitae, a de-identified sample psychological assessment report, an unofficial copy of your graduate school transcripts, and three reference letters by Friday, January 28, 2022.
Please see the Postdoctoral Fellowship Handbook for additional information and application instructions.
