How to Apply
- Applications due: December 13, 2019

- Interviews (rehabilitation track): Weeks of January 14 and January 21, 2020
- Interviews (general track): Tuesday, February 4, 2020 at the INS Meeting
The Neuropsychology Postdoctoral Residency Program at Barrow Neurological Institute participates in the Association for Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN) match (note that the general and rehabilitation tracks have separate identification codes).
Individuals who are considered appropriate candidates for this residency program must have obtained a doctorate degree in clinical psychology or clinical neuropsychology from an APA-accredited program, as well as an APA-accredited clinical internship. Applications from individuals whose training programs are not accredited at the time of application will not be reviewed. Because this is a postdoctoral program, we also do not accept applications from people who are ABD (all but dissertation) candidates at the time the fellowship begins. Applicants who are not U.S. citizens must have unrestricted authorization to work in the U.S. for the full two-year residency program before their application can be accepted. Applicants must confirm their citizenship/visa status in their letter of application.
Please send a letter outlining your interests and track(s) you are applying to, background experience, training goals, and the opportunities you seek during your postdoctoral residency (along with a current curriculum vitae, unofficial transcript of all graduate work, and the APPCN Verification of Completion of Doctorate form) to the director of the postdoctoral residency program by December 13, 2019. Three letters of recommendation should also be submitted. Application materials may be sent electronically or by mail.
Applicants will be notified by early January 2020 if they will be invited for an interview. Finalists for the rehabilitation track must attend interviews onsite in Phoenix the weeks of January 13 and January 20, 2020. It is highly desirable to interview all applicants in person, therefore the interviews for general track applicants typically occur on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 at the INS meeting (usually a representative of the program will also be at the National Academy of Neuropsychology meeting to informally address questions about the program). In rare circumstances, a detailed telephone interview may be arranged.
Residents selected for training will be notified on the date designated by the APPCN. Please note that if information were to come to light after the match that would have precluded us from selecting you as a candidate, we reserve the right to withdraw our offer.
