We offer up to eight Post-Doctoral Fellowship positions each year. Applications are accepted year-round, but most Fellows complete one year of training following an academic calendar.
The Post-Doctoral Fellowship focuses on psychological testing and evaluation. Fellows receive a broad-generalist experience, with exposure to a wide range of referral types, ages, ethnically diverse clients, and diagnoses, but with the potential for specific focus in one or more of the areas outlined below.
Successful applicants will have solid testing skills, excellent report writing skills, the ability to learn and integrate new tests into their repertoire quickly, and motivation to strive for excellence.

Post-Doctoral Fellowship FAQs
Who should apply? APS is committed to ensuring an inclusive and accepting workplace for trainees of all backgrounds. We are looking for fellows who enjoy psychological testing and desire to work in an inviting and welcoming atmosphere (with competitive pay).
What else should I know about this position? This position is largely focused on psychological testing and evaluation, as opposed to psychotherapy. Evaluations primarily take place in our office or via telehealth. There are additional opportunities for conducting evaluations at off-site locations (i.e., juvenile and adult detention centers, social services offices, treatment centers).
When can I apply? There is no specific closing or cut-off date for post-doctoral fellowship positions. Most fellows complete one year of training to meet licensure requirements, typically in line with an academic calendar. However, there often are opportunities for open enrollment or year-round acceptance.
How far in my training should I be? Applicants for the post-doctoral fellowship have typically completed their pre-doctoral internship in psychology. They should be close to having their doctoral degree in psychology conferred if this has not already taken place.
