Position Summary

Fordham University Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS) will offer two postgraduate fellowship positions for the 2024-2025 academic year at the Rose Hill Campus (Bronx, NY) with concentrations in Training, Groups, or Social Justice & Outreach, and one postgraduate fellow position at the Lincoln Center Campus (New York, NY) with a concentration in International Mental Health (Mandarin speaker required).


The 12-month fellowship will commence on August 12, 2024.


The fellowship carries a stipend, full University benefits (described in detail below) and fully meets the licensure requirement of supervised postdoctoral psychology, mental health counseling, and social work hours in New York and many other states. We emphasize generalist practice from a relational psychodynamic perspective, while allowing fellows to develop additional expertise in an administrative area relevant to University counseling (e.g., training and supervision, group therapy, outreach/prevention).


We have a social justice-centered equity-based treatment model. Fordham CPS is committed to diversifying our staff and to increasing diversity in the field through quality training. We welcome and encourage applications from individuals from all religious backgrounds, racial/ethnic minority individuals, immigrants and international students, LGBTQ and gender-expansive individuals, second-career/non-traditional-age applicants, individuals with disabilities, and others who are historically underrepresented in the mental health fields.

Performs administrative duties as assigned.

Training Activities:

Supervision: Post-graduate fellows receive 2 hours of individual supervision per week from licensed psychologists. Supplemental supervision is provided for additional activities such as co-leading groups or conducting outreach.
Seminars: Fellows meet weekly with Training Director and other staff members for case conferences, psychodynamic didactics, multicultural seminar (fall semester), and supervision of supervision seminar (spring semester).
Concentration: At Rose Hill, each fellow completes a year-long concentration as an “assistant coordinator” in one area (training/supervision, group therapy, outreach/prevention, or diversity/social justice initiatives), shadowing/learning from and supporting the activities of the staff member responsible for that area of CPS’ operations. At Lincoln Center, the only concentration available is international student mental health, and we welcome Mandarin-speaking applicants for this position.
