Postdoctoral Clinical Psychologist/Clinical Psychologist at Christian Psychological Associates John R. Day & Associates
Bloomington, Illinois

Christian Psychological Associates, John R. Day & Associates, seeks a pre-licensed postdoctoral applicant or a Licensed Clinical Psychologist for a full-time position providing a combination of psychotherapy services and psychological evaluations beginning as soon as available. Willing to consider potential postdoctoral candidates available in the Summer of ’22 or licensed or license-eligible candidates available now.

This practice is a busy, multidisciplinary practice (with master’s-level and clinical psychologists) with five offices in the Peoria, IL and Bloomington-Normal, IL region. This position is for our new Bloomington office, located in a historic (built in 1854) building in downtown Bloomington. It is across from the courthouse, near restaurants and other entertainment, and a delightful place to be for those of us who work there.  There will be two apartments on the upper levels of the three-story building, and it is possible a year of rent-free apartment living could be part of the compensation package (assuming the apartments are remodeled by the time the applicant would start).

We serve clients aged 2 to 99, offering individual, family, group and marital therapy, as well as psychological evaluations, including forensic work. We seek someone with a strong work ethic, enjoyment of people, and strong analytical skills, as well as a desire for a long-term position in a thriving clinical environment. The successful applicant will be able to build a work life consistent with their interests, given the broad needs in the region. We have a strong reputation in Central Illinois, and approximately 50% of our clients do not identify as Christians. We treat all those who want services.

Central Illinois offers a combination of positive income potential and a reasonable cost of living. It would be easily attainable to earn a six-figure income within a short period of time following licensure. There are several universities (Illinois State University, Bradley University, University of Illinois, Illinois Wesleyan University), several colleges, and several corporate headquarters in the region. It is possible to live a suburban/urban or a rural lifestyle, depending on preference. Multiple larger urban areas are within 2-3 hours’ drive for day trips and weekend getaways, including Chicago, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, and Cincinnati.

Job Description: The position would involve a combination of psychotherapy (individual-including children and adolescents, marital, and family) and psychological assessment. The mix of the two would depend on the psychologist's preferences, but it could be 50% psychotherapy and 50% assessments, 75% psychotherapy and 25% psychological evaluations, or vice versa.

Salary: $70,000 until licensed. Once licensed and on insurance panels, compensation is 60% of generated fees, a bonus (see below), a retirement plan with a match up to three percent of salary, and malpractice insurance coverage. An income range between $100,000 and $150,000 is attainable within a short period of time (the first year for the lower figure, more time for the upper range) once licensed. Our most recent postdoctoral intern approached six-figures in her first year after being licensed, working four days per week. For those who are already licensed, a salary will be provided until you are on insurance panels.

Benefits: A bonus of $350/month ($4200/year) is provided once on commission and generating 300 clinical hours per quarter. A retirement plan is also available, with a match up to three percent of salary. Two weeks of paid vacation time is included during the postdoctoral period.  Malpractice insurance coverage is provided.
