Generalist/Suicide Prevention Specialist Postdoctoral Scholar - Counseling Services

The University of Nevada, Reno Counseling Services is recruiting for a full-time, 12-month position for a combination Generalist/Suicide Prevention Specialist Postdoctoral Fellowship. The postdoctoral fellowship will be divided into: 75% effort working as a generalist clinician and 25% effort working as a counselor on a multi-site NIMH-funded grant (R01 MH116052; PI: Jacqueline Pistorello, Ph.D.) aiming to treat suicidal college students. Participation as a counselor on the grant is voluntary and will include treating suicidal college students and being intensively trained by national experts on two empirically validated, suicidality-focused approaches: Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality (CAMS) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Other areas of focus (e.g., groups) may also be considered dependent on interest and available supervision. Under supervision, the Postdoctoral Fellow will provide a full range of psychological counseling, including CAMS and DBT, crisis intervention, and outreach services to university students. This position will receive a comprehensive training experience in University Counseling Services. This position has a combined “generalist” and suicidality-focused approach, and provides opportunities for prevention and awareness outreach and consultation for the university community. The majority of this work is accomplished via one-to-one contact with students, but may also be extended to faculty, campus organizations and other professional members of the community. The preferred start date for this position is August 1, 2022.
