Student Recreation and Wellness Center

Postdoctoral Scholars

CAPS will not be offering postdoctoral positions for the 2015-2016 year.

Student Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at the University of Nevada Las Vegas is pleased to offer two Postdoctoral Scholar positions. CAPS is a department within the Student Wellness unit that includes a health center, women’s center, disability resources center, office of student conduct, and a wellness promotion department. This is a unique opportunity to work within an integrated service delivery model that offers comprehensive wellness services to a diverse student population. This is a 12-month full-time position with a start date in early August.

These positions afford the postdoctoral scholars the opportunity to work as junior clinicians in a dynamic urban, university counseling center that uses a holistic wellness model in serving students. Under the supervision of a licensed psychologist, scholars will provide individual, couples, and group therapy from a brief therapy model, conduct intake evaluations, crisis assessment and intervention, and provide outreach programs and consultation to the campus community. Scholars will have an opportunity to select a concentration based on their interests. The scholars will attend regularly scheduled clinical assessment team meetings for disposition and peer supervision as well as weekly staff meetings. There are opportunities to provide clinical training to practicum-level students. The scholars will receive weekly individual supervision from a licensed psychologist in accordance with Nevada state licensure requirements for postdoctoral hours.


Candidates must have completed a doctoral degree in Counseling or Clinical Psychology from an accredited college or university and an APA accredited, pre-doctoral internship is preferred. Candidates should be knowledgeable of college student development, interested in working with a diverse university population, and experienced with crisis assessment and intervention. Employment will be contingent upon the successful completion of a background check.

How to Apply

The postdoctoral scholar positions are advertised around January for positions that begin the following August. Once advertised, interested candidates can apply via the UNLV Human Resources website.
