Postdoctoral Fellowship 

The University of Denver, the Graduate School of Professional Psychology, the Masters of Forensic Psychology Program, and Denver FIRST are pleased to offer our postdoctoral fellowship in forensic psychology. The fellowship runs on the academic year, early September - late August, and provides opportunities for forensic practice, supervision, research, and teaching. Primarily, the fellowship offers a blend of forensic evaluation practice and academic duties. The fellow will be integrated into the forensic expertise at GSPP and Denver FIRST, and the fellow will network with mental health professionals, administrators, judicial personnel, correctional personnel, and others around Colorado throughout the training year. The didactic portion of the fellowship is integrated with the forensic psychology fellowship at the Colorado Mental Health Institute - Pueblo and the University of Colorado's forensic psychiatry fellowship program. Graduates of the fellowship are best positioned to work in private forensic practice, forensic settings, or higher education. Applications are typically due around the new year.
