THE COUNSELING CENTER AT LOYOLA UNIVERSITY MARYLAND IS RECRUITING FOR TWO, 12-MONTH POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP POSITIONS THAT BEGIN AUGUST 14, 2017. The Fellowship Program offers specialized experience with mental health and developmental issues of the contemporary college student. Our staff provides an integrated service delivery model of student-centered clinical approaches, multicultural competencies and social justice advocacy, creative preventive public health programming and applied research. Our Program is designed to enhance one's skills in providing this kind of integrated university counseling center service, as well as to provide knowledge about managing at least one major administrative area of university counseling centers through an Administrative Apprenticeship. The Apprenticeship allows Fellows work with a senior staff member who manages one of two Counseling Center functional areas: Social Justice or Public Health. Additional responsibilities include initial assessment interviews, brief culturally-responsive individual and group psychotherapy, daytime and after-hours crisis intervention, outreach programming, public health campaign teams, campus trainings, and consultation.
Fellows receive professional training and development. Supervision consists of one hour of weekly, individual supervision by Maryland licensed psychologists and supervision of group therapy work. Fellows participate in seminars such as: Advanced Clinical Seminar, Professional Development, and Public Health Seminar. Lastly, Fellows join with senior staff in weekly staff meetings, clinical team meetings, case conferences, bi-weekly public health team meetings, ½-day monthly Cultural Reflection Seminars, and monthly Student Development Divisional Professional Development Seminars.
The Counseling Center serves the campus community in a variety of roles resulting in our integration into the entire University. Our goal is that this postdoctoral training experience would mirror that level of integration and involvement, while providing a continual experience of being a valued colleague within our Center.
Loyola University Maryland a small, predominantly residential liberal arts Jesuit Catholic university that enrolls over 4,000 undergraduate and over 2,000 graduate students. The University is dedicated to the ideals of academic excellence and liberal arts education. Loyola University Maryland was founded in the Jesuit philosophy of “Cura Personalis” or “Care for the whole person.” A student will engage the sciences, the businesses, the arts and the humanities in the classroom. In addition, through a host of recreational activities, community service activities, and campus leadership opportunities, students are supported in personal and interpersonal development, so they are able to lead and serve in a diverse and changing world. The overall Jesuit tradition seeks to encourage students to ultimately lead an examined life of intellectual, social, and spiritual discernment, continuous learning, and service.
The University is located in Baltimore City. It is nestled between several long-standing Baltimore neighborhoods, with which it has solid working relationships. Loyola is also situated near several well-established hospitals and universities, which creates an inviting environment with access to a great variety of resources. Baltimore boasts a wonderful array of neighborhood and ethnic restaurants, museums, cultural activities, unique shops, sporting events and residential communities. While continuing to grow due to people moving in from other cities and regions, Baltimore maintains a steady foundation of residents whose families have lived here for several generations. This combination makes Baltimore a nice blend of urban variety and community identity.

Fellows can enroll in health and dental insurance plans, receive paid sick and vacation leave, and all other benefits that are provided to Administrators at Loyola that do not require more than one year of employment.
