Neuropsychology Postdoctoral Fellow

Website Michigan Medicine—VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System Clinical

The Michigan Medicine – VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System Consortium in Clinical Neuropsychology is accepting applications for two-year residencies in adult and pediatric neuropsychology, starting September 2019. The program follows the scientist-practitioner model and emphasizes the training and development of psychologists who can assume leadership roles in research, teaching, and clinical service. Postdoctoral residents participate in a core curriculum, general clinical training, and programmatic research. Applications are currently being accepted for clinical emphases in Adult and Pediatric Neuropsychology. Research emphases include: Adult Neuromedical, Geriatric/Dementia, Pediatric Neuropsychology, and Adult/Geriatric Neuropsychology (VA). Particular research emphasis includes investigations using functional neuroimaging techniques.  Residencies follow the Houston Conference Training Guidelines. The program develops postdoctoral residents’ specialty expertise in Clinical Neuropsychology and prepares them for board certification in Clinical Neuropsychology through the American Board of Clinical Neuropsychology (ABCN) in conjunction with the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP). The program is fully accredited by the American Psychological Association. Our training program provides a rich interdisciplinary environment with seminars, invited lectures, and opportunities for collaboration with faculty across disciplines and departments. Michigan Medicine and VA residencies differ slightly in ancillary benefits on a yearly basis, with a minimum stipend of $45,913 and generous health benefits for the first year, and continued benefits and increases in stipends for the second year. Benefits include vacation time, sick leave, conference time, and options for health insurance. We especially invite and encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups. The University of Michigan and the Department of Veterans Affairs are non-discriminatory action employers.
