Job Summary

CU Boulder CAPS is looking to fill our two Psychology Post-Doctoral Fellowship positions, each focusing on clinical services with the opportunity to select a particular area of concentration. The Fellows will provide direct clinical services, including group and individual psychotherapy, case management, initial screening assessments, and crisis intervention. The Fellows will attend multidisciplinary seminars and meetings, and will conduct outreach and community engagement activities as needed. All postdoctoral fellows receive a minimum of 1 hour of primary supervision weekly, as well as 30 minutes of track-specific supervision. 

Psychology Postdoctoral Fellows have the opportunity to select a particular track of clinical focus throughout the training year. Applicants are invited to identify the track(s) which interest them:
  1. In the Crisis Care and Triage track, the postdoc will provide triage sessions to CU Boulder students in crisis and post-hospital case management disposition sessions. The postdoc will also join the Crisis/Triage Team meetings, co-facilitate an intensive DBT group, and have the opportunity to be involved in continuously updating crisis/triage workflow processes in a large University clinic.
  2. In the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) track, the postdoc provides outreach and clinical services to multi-culturally diverse and historically under-represented student populations. The postdoc develops relationships with campus partners to develop strategies for best serving underrepresented students. Finally, the postdoc is encouraged to complete a project of their choice related to increasing access, reducing barriers, and offering culturally appropriate services to underrepresented students.
  3. In the CAPS Counselor-in-Residence (CIR) track, the postdoc supports Residence Life staff in addressing the mental health concerns of student residents. The postdoc develops responsive, preventative mental health programming, provides psycho-education to Residence Life staff on mental health topics, and cultivates relationships with staff and residents. The postdoc collaborates with the Embedded Team at CAPS to provide community engagement and outreach initiatives related to student residents.
The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to building a culturally diverse community of faculty, staff, and students dedicated to contributing to an inclusive campus environment. We are an Equal Opportunity employer, including veterans and individuals with disabilities.
