How To Apply

Application Process

Applications are due by December 20 of the year prior to when the fellowship begins (e.g. 2021-23 position applications are due December 20, 2020). Applicants are notified of their application status prior to the February meeting of the International Neuropsychological Society (INS). Applicants selected for further consideration typically interview with our faculty at the INS meeting although other interview formats (phone interview or in-person interview) may also be utilized if the candidate is unable to travel to INS. 

Our Program participates in the APPCN Match Program. Applicants are provided feedback about their status in accordance with APPCN guidelines. If you are applying to our program and receive a pre-emptive offer from a non-APPCN program, we encourage you to contact us to discuss your ranking with us. We follow all APPCN regulations concerning communication during the match, but these regulations allow us to provide you information about your status with our program.


Application Materials

  • Cover letter articulating goals and experiences
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Three letters of reference (preferably including at least one letter from an internship neuropsychologist supervisor and at least one from an ABPP/CN neuropsychologist)
  • Two sample case reports
  • APPCN Verification of Completion of Doctorate

If you have not completed your dissertation at the time of your application, please include a letter from the chair of your dissertation committee indicating the status of your project and your anticipated date of completion. Please also include information on the status of your dissertation in your cover letter. Materials should be submitted online through the APPA CAS Postdoctoral Fellowship application portal.
