The University of Iowa Stead Family Department of Pediatrics is currently recruiting one Postdoctoral Fellow in Pediatric Psychology for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Our team of psychologists have specialties in three distinct areas including Neuropsychology, Chronic Health, and Behavioral Psychology.

A one-year postdoctoral fellowship position is available for candidates who will have obtained their PhD in clinical, counseling, or school psychology and completed an APA/APPIC approved internship prior to the start date of September 1, 2021. The fellow must also obtain a provisional license to practice in Iowa by the start date.
