Duties of the Fellow:

Postdoctoral positions at the Tufts University Counseling and Mental Health Service (CMHS) offer clinical training in brief psychotherapy, crisis intervention, and community consultation.  They are full-time, 12-month positions.  A work week of 35 hours (Mondays – Fridays, from 9:00am-5:00pm, with one hour per day allotted for lunch) is required, with the expectation that some additional time outside of these hours will be needed occasionally for outreach and emergencies.  In addition to treating students and occasionally staff at Tufts University, consultation and outreach to the Tufts community is a vital part of our work.  Fellows will also spend time working on-call in our 24-hour emergency service.  The position runs from August, 2015 – August, 2016.  Along with legal holidays, Postdoctoral Fellows receive two weeks of vacation time in December, one week during Tufts spring break in March, and one week in the summer.  The CMHS is staffed by clinical psychologists, clinical social workers, and psychiatrists.  For further information about our staff and services, please view our webpage on the Tufts University website (


Application Process:

We accept four Postdoctoral Fellows per year.  Positions are open to applicants with a doctorate in psychology; all degree requirements, including the dissertation defense, must be completed by August 20, 2015.  To apply for a postdoctoral fellowship at the Tufts University Counseling and Mental Health Service, please submit an application through the Human Resources page of the Tufts University website:

The position will be listed as Post Graduate Intern.  In your cover letter, please tell us why we should be particularly interested in your application.  We welcome and encourage applications from minority and gay and lesbian candidates.  There is no application deadline, but please note that applications will be accepted and reviewed until the positions are filled, and thus it is better to apply earlier rather than later.  Letters of reference are not required unless you are offered an interview.  In that case, please bring 3 letters of reference with you to the interview. 

Supervision and Seminars: Training seminars and workshops are held throughout the academic year.  Fellows receive two hours of individual supervision each week from two different supervisors as well as one hour per week of group supervision.

Goals of the Fellowship: We prepare our Postdoctoral Fellows for licensure and professional practice as described above.
