Postdoctoral Resources

For Students and Alumni

Where Should I Begin My Postdoc Search?

  • Know the postdoctoral requirements from the state that you wish to become licensed. Visit the Career Services page on the William James website for details.
  • Search CareerLink, William James College's online local and national job posting board; new opportunities are posted weekly.
    • Did you see a job that interests you but it's not a postdoc? Contact that organization and ask if a post-doctoral position is possible. Some agencies will be eager to train a post-doc with the expectation that they may move into a staff position; there's no harm in asking!
  • Search the APPIC Directory.
  • For a detailed list of postdoctoral sites with contact information in New England, please visits the Career Services section of MyCampus.
    • This is a William James College generated list updated on a yearly basis.
  • There are many different resources available that will assist you in your search for a postdoc. Read about them in this article on the APA website.
