Current Openings

Education and Training
The Erikson Institute for Education, Research, and Advocacy of the Austen Riggs Center provides extensive psychoanalytic education and clinical training for professionals in all stages of their careers.
Elective in Psychodynamic Psychiatry
The Elective in Psychodynamic Psychiatry is designed to provide students of psychiatry (including both medical students and psychiatric residents) with a perspective that complements the medical model that is dominant in mainstream psychiatric approaches to major psychiatric illness.
Internship Opportunity
The Austen Riggs Center offers an opportunity for undergraduate students to take part in our Internship Program. This is a chance to engage directly in clinically-focused research or institutional operations under the supervision of a staff member, and to gain insight into working life at a world-class psychiatric hospital. Though undergraduates focused on pre-medical, psychology, neuroscience, or related areas are encouraged to apply, note that students from other academic disciplines are also welcomed.
In 2022, we hope to offer internships June-August, with a requirement of 65 or 100 hours on a schedule to be negotiated, and a stipend of either $1,000 or $1500, respectively. No other benefits, accommodation, transportation, or housing are provided.
