The Program in Human Sexuality at the University of Minnesota Medical School is one of the largest clinical, teaching, and research institutions in the world specializing in human sexuality. We are inviting applications for 3 postdoctoral fellowships to join a vibrant team of faculty and postdoctoral fellows for a two-year program beginning Fall 2018. The three fellowship opportunities include the Michael Metz Fellowship in Couples Sexual Health, the Randi and Fred Ettner Fellowship in Transgender Health, and a general fellowship in clinical sexual health. Those interested in these fellowships are highly encouraged to apply and to indicate their area of interest.

Designated fellowships are designed to support a balanced mix of clinical and research training in the specified area, with broader experience in overall sexual health care. The general fellowship will have an emphasis in sexual health care, with a smaller amount of time devoted to research. Fellows will provide individual, family, couple, and group psychotherapy for a wide range of sexual dysfunctions and problems including: relationship and sexual problems, transgender issues, sexual orientation concerns, paraphilias, and compulsive sexual behavior. The clinic serves a diverse group of patients (an average of 1,200 visits per month), including children, adolescents, minorities, disabled individuals, and clients with chronic medical or mental health problems. The training will help the fellow develop skills in addressing sexual issues in any clinical setting and conducting psychosexual evaluations. In addition to sex therapy, treatment addresses a wide variety of psychiatric disorders. This kind of diversity makes for an exciting and stimulating fellowship! Fellows complete a research project that is tailored to their own interests.

Applicants must have their PhD or PsyD. The fellowship helps individuals gain licensure. Our fellows enjoy a competitive salary, excellent benefits, and a professional travel stipend. Interested candidates should send inquiries to: Eli Coleman, Professor and Director, 1300 S. 2nd St., Suite 180, Minneapolis, MN 55454. 

Please see the menu at the left for application instructions and more information regarding fellowship opportunities. The University of Minnesota recognizes and values the importance of diversity and inclusion in enriching the employment experience of its employees and in supporting the academic mission, and is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer.
