Adjunct Clinical Postdoctoral Associate

Job Description:

The Counseling and Wellness Center (CWC) at the University of Florida is offering multiple Adjunct Clinical Postdoctoral Associate positions for the 2022-2023 academic year. The postdoctoral position offers advanced training in a variety of areas related to the health service field of psychology. Postdoctoral associates receive advanced training in university counseling services. The postdoctoral program currently offers generalists positions with the possibility for additional specialization in four major areas: (1) Comprehensive Assessment, (2) Multicultural and Social Justice Counseling Competencies, (3) Intensive Support (Suicide, AOD, and Trauma prevention and interventions), and (4) Group Counseling.

The CWC training program is strongly aligned with and steeped in a commitment to diversity awareness, multicultural competence, and social justice. We believe that this training is vital to all parts of counselor development and competence and thus, is incorporated into all areas of supervision, training seminars, evaluations, and professional activities.

The training program is also committed to cultivating an atmosphere that is conducive to learning by providing clinical postdoc associates with an appropriate blend of support and challenge. Postdoctoral associates are treated as early career professionals and as such, are given a great deal of autonomy and responsibility. Simultaneously, postdoctoral associates will receive the professional support necessary to allow for their continued professional development.

Postdoctoral associates will be expected to fulfill the multiple roles of a university counseling center clinician, which include counseling services (individual, couples, and/or group counseling), assessment, crisis intervention, referral, consultation, outreach, supervision of student trainees, participation in staff meetings and training seminars, and timely completion of necessary administrative functions. Postdoctoral associates will receive a minimum of 1 hour of face-to-face individual and 1 hour of individual or group supervision weekly and be provided with various professional development opportunities.

The 12-month 2000-hour (with 900 hours in activities related to direct client contact) positions have been designed to meet the requirements for licensure in the State of Florida. Salary is $49,000 for 12 months.
