Eating Disorder Clinical Postdoc Position Description
The position will include training in the use of evidence-based treatments for eating disorders including Enhanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT-E), Family-Based Treatment (FBT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for ARFID (CBT-AR). Fellows provide outpatient therapy for clients with a full range of eating disorders. Fellows receive two hours of supervision each week, attend our bi-weekly staff meetings and didactic training, and have opportunities for additional training.
Our practice comprises psychologists, social workers, and licensed marital and family therapists. We work closely with local dietitians, medical doctors, psychiatrists, and treatment centers.
The full-time position starts in August 2023. The starting pay is $35 per clinical hour plus $18 for admin hours. We expect postdoctoral fellows to carry a clinical caseload of approximately 22 to 25 hours per week. Accordingly, we estimate the initial salary based on these clinical hours to total approximately $52,000/year. Once licensed, there is an opportunity for a staff-level position with a significant increase in pay. A 2-year commitment is preferred in order to obtain competence in all three modalities: CBT-E, CBT-AR, and FBT. Medical benefits, vacation, and sick leave are also provided.
