POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS IN ADULT CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY: The Michigan Medicine/VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System (MICHMED/VAAAHS) Clinical Psychology Consortium is accepting applications for fellowships in our APA-accredited training program. The program follows the scientist-practitioner model and emphasizes the training and development of psychologists in a rich interdisciplinary environment who will be able to assume leadership roles in research, teaching, and clinical service. Postdoctoral fellows participate in a core curriculum, evidence-based clinical training, and mentored clinical research in a specific content area. Research opportunities are available from a range of areas including mood disorders; women’s mental health; sleep and circadian research; health psychology; anxiety and related disorders (e.g., posttraumatic stress disorder); substance use disorders; psychotic disorders; primary care mental health integrations; and mental health recovery. We anticipate accepting five fellows into the consortium beginning Aug/Sept 2019: 2 MICHMED adult fellows, 2 VAAAHS adult fellows, and 1 VAAAHS adult women’s mental health fellow. Fellowships are APA-accredited for one year, but both MICHMED fellowships are two years in duration. Applications are encouraged from candidates with interests in any of the above research areas, but the 2 MICHMED positions are particularly interested in applicants with research interests in early psychosis and neuroimaging skills (fMRI and/or EEG/ERP) and in sleep and circadian research. The psychosis position will have a primary research focus (~75%). To be considered, applicants must have completed an APA-accredited doctoral program in Clinical or Counseling Psychology and an APA-accredited predoctoral internship by August 2019.
Stipends range from $48,432 to $53,177 for 1st and 2nd year fellows, respectively. Benefits include vacations, sick leave and options for health insurance. We especially invite and encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups. Michigan Medicine and the VA Ann Arbor are committed to a policy of equal opportunity for all persons and do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, religion, height, weight, or veteran status in the selection of fellows.
