    Important Dates

    Applications due: Dec. 13, 2019

    Interview notifications sent: Late December 2019

    Interviews: Last two weeks of January 2020

    Application Process

    Applicants who are considered appropriate candidates for the Rehabilitation Psychology Postdoctoral Residency Program must have obtained a doctorate degree in clinical psychology, clinical health psychology, or clinical neuropsychology from an APA-accredited program. Candidates must also have completed an APA-accredited clinical internship. Applications from individuals whose training programs are not accredited at the time of application will not be considered. As this is a postdoctoral program, applicants must have completed their doctorate by the start of fellowship. 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; confirmation of citizenship/visa status must be included in all applicants’ letter of interest. Please note that this fellowship is separate from the Neuropsychology Postdoctoral Residency Program, which participates in the Association for Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN) match.

    Applicants should submit a letter outlining their interests, background experiences, training goals, and the opportunities sought during fellowship. Additionally applicants should provide current curriculum vitae and unofficial transcript of all graduate work. Three letters of recommendation should also be submitted; these letters should come directly from the writers and will not be accepted from applicants. In addition, applicants should submit a statement from the training director of the doctoral program that all requirements for graduation, including dissertation, will have been completed prior to Sept. 1 and/or the start date of the residency for the following year; this attestation should be separate from the letters of recommendation.

    Application materials may be sent electronically or by mail but must be received by Dec. 13, 2019. Applicants will be notified by late December 2019 if they will be invited for an interview. Finalists for the position will be expected to attend onsite interviews in Phoenix the weeks of Jan. 20 and Jan. 27, 2020.

    Residents selected for training will be notified by the end of February 2020 and will have up to one week to inform the program of their decision to accept or decline the offer. In the event that a qualified candidate is not identified during this timeframe, the program reserves the right to re-open the application process. Please note that if information were to come to light after selection that would have precluded us from selecting you as a candidate, we reserve the right to withdraw our offer.
