Child & Adolescent Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowships

Postdoctoral fellowship programs in NYU Langone’s Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry offer advanced training in six child and adolescent psychology subspecialties. The programs take place at the Child Study Center, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone.

We welcome candidates who have completed an accredited American Psychological Association (APA) doctoral program and an APA-approved internship to apply to our intensive and specialized training programs in these concentrated areas of interest. Through supervised training and coursework, you develop increasing competency in your chosen subspecialty and are ready to advance to licensure.

Our recruitment committee is especially interested in candidates who contribute to NYU Langone’s commitment to diversity and inclusion through research, teaching, and service. The committee encourages applications from diverse candidates, including individuals from backgrounds historically underrepresented in psychology. It is our duty to have a team of mental health clinicians that reflect the wide diversity of the patients we serve. We are vigilant and diligently committed to providing an environment that is welcoming and equitable for students, trainees, faculty, and our community, that best serves our patients, and that perpetuates a vibrant culture of excellence. Meet our current postdoctoral fellows.

In accordance with NYU Langone Health policy and the New York State governor’s executive order, COVID-19 vaccination is required for all faculty, staff, voluntary attending physicians, Howard Hughes Medical Institute employees who are onsite, noncompensated faculty, students, clinical and academic observers, and volunteers.
