The Department of Psychiatry at the Yale School of Medicine is seeking qualified candidates for new positions as to serve as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) clinicians in NIH-funded treatment studies for obesity and eating disorders (binge-eating disorder and loss-of-control eating).
New treatment studies supported by NIH grants will provide intensive training and supervision opportunities for individuals interested in careers as scientist-practitioners (clinical practice, clinical leadership, program development) as clinician-scholars/educators and leaders in academic medical school and health-care systems. We specifically seek persons with experience and interests in eating/weight disorders.
Although this is primarily an advanced clinical training position rather than a research position, the experience occurs with a vibrant, collaborative, and productive clinical-research center. Thus, this position can contribute to and facilitate clinical-research via natural synergies between clinical research roles in our center.
We will consider candidates at either (1) the predoctoral (ABD) level seeking additional supervised clinical hours to increase competitiveness for APPIC internships or while completing their dissertation; or (2) at the post-doctoral level seeking intensive supervised clinical hours for independent psychology licensure. Postdoctoral candidates would also gain experience in program development and tiered supervision of clinicians.
Members of under-represented groups are especially encouraged to apply as are individuals who have interests in health disparities and obesity and eating disorders. Several clinical studies are examining bias and disparities.
Start date is July/August 2021, though an earlier start date, if desired, is possible.
Interested candidates should send a CV and statement of interests (reference letters will be requested after initial review) by email to: Carlos M. Grilo, Ph.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology, Yale University (firstname.lastname@example.org).
