Doug Braun-Harvey Fellowship
The Doug Braun-Harvey Fellowship in Compulsive Sexual Behavior is a two-year program that provides training in the area of compulsive and out-of-control sexual behavior, an area that we have targeted for expanding access to care and advancing research to better understand, diagnose and treat the behavior. The fellowship will fund postdoctoral fellows who are interested in a career that combines clinical and scholarly endeavors in the area of compulsive and out-of-control sexual behavior.
Fellows in the Program in Human Sexuality with an emphasis in Compulsive Sexual Behavior complete a two-year program that combines clinical care and research. They spend 40% of their time conducting research projects under faculty supervision, with a goal of presenting results at a scientific conference or preparing an article for publication. They spend 60% of their time providing clinical care focused on compulsive and out-of-control sexual behavior as well as treating a variety of sexual health conditions, under the supervision of experienced professionals.
Applicants must have a PhD or PsyD in psychology and be eligible for licensure in the State of Minnesota. We prefer applicants to have experience or an interest in a career that combines clinical and scholarly endeavors in the area of compulsive and out-of-control sexual behavior.
