Hi all,

Internship year is underway and postdoc applications are looming. However, I can't seem to find many listings for clinical psychology postdocs in the NYC area. I've checked APPIC's listed sites--and there are a few--but less than I was expecting. There are also several postings on websites like indeed, monster, etc, but fewer than expected.

To those who have already gone through the process: where are these positions listed? Are there really just that many fewer postings than internship?

Still not even sure if postdoc is the route I'd like to go. Considering just applying to jobs with a limited permit. Have you had any success with that? Currently not getting much support from my internship placement in this regard.

Thanks in advance everyone!

I've started seeing the neuropsychology fellowship postings roll out, but those tend to precede non-neuro positions by a month or two, typically. So I'd expect you to start seeing more probably over the next couple months.

Professional listservs and professional society websites were the main places I looked back when I was on the postdoc hunt.

I see! That is reassuring. Any specific recommendations for listservs or professional society websites? Recently joined APPIC's postdoc listserv, but the content has mostly been about organizing a timeline for the application process.

Many places have hiring freezes right now and I imagine a very large number of others are at least delaying searches until they can see how finances shake out a little more. That said, I'm also seeing a reasonable number of postings on listservs since grant-funded positions remain (relatively) stable and hiring freezes do not always apply to them.

As for specific listservs - depends what you want to do. I'm only only on a handful of specialty addiction/health-psych ones. I imagine ABCT and ACBS are good general ones if you are more clinically-focused.

I always learn about postdoc positions at conferences, not sure how that info was shared through virtual conferences. Perhaps just on their website or whatever listserv they use.

Hi! What kind of postdocs are you looking for? If they're related to kids I can probably recommend some places because I applied almost exclusively in NYC last year.

Hi! Thank you for offering to help out. I'm looking mostly for sites that provide adult-therapy services, although I'm open to working with teens/young adults. College counseling sites and outpatient clinics are preferred!

With it being specific to NYC, you could try joining the state/local psych association(s) to keep an eye on their listserv.

I'd also say you could check in with VA colleagues to forward what comes across VA listservs, but I'm not sure how many of those would actually be in NYC itself.

The deluge of neuropsych postdoc listings has definitely begun, so I would expect some of the more generalist-oriented sites to start advertising within the next month.

Oh wow yes! Thank you!!

Just an FYI on that list; not all of those are approved for ABFP for the 5 year waiver. There are also some on that list that I would avoid like the plague, as you will be used for business purposes only (i.e., you are going to be used [exploited] solely as labor for bottom line).

What?? Which ones?? I’m too young to be exploited!
But seriously, I was looking at the 3 in WA and 1 in OR so if anyone has scary stories to share about those 4, please let me know.

NWFI & Western State are HIGHLY regarded from everyone I've ever talked to. The Child one that's affiliated with Western State is brand new, but I'm assuming it's also going to get the waiver once they're more established.

Please let me know which ones too! I'll be applying soon and am definitely curious!
