Yale Research and Clinical Postdoctoral Positions
Yale POWER (at the Yale School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry) is seeking qualified candidates for two Postdoctoral positions focused on binge-eating disorder (BED). New studies supported by NIH grants will provide training and clinical-research opportunities for individuals interested in careers working with binge eating and manifestations of disordered eating. Although there is considerable overlap between the two positions, one is structured for individuals interested in clinical practice and program leadership and one for clinical research in academic medical school and health-care systems.
Clinical Post-Doctoral Associate Position
"Clinical-Research" Post-Doctoral Associate Position
Working at Yale POWER
Yale POWER is a research clinic in the Department of Psychiatry within the Yale School of Medicine. For more than three decades, our program has been continuously funded by the NIH to conduct treatment studies for individuals with eating/weight concerns. The research clinic environment is busy and provides ample hours to apply for licensure after one full year (most post-docs apply for licensure during their second year, timing their application with state-based requirements). Yale POWER is best suited for individuals who are curious and patient-centered; our research environment is an ideal setting to master specific assessment instruments and protocolized behavioral and cognitive-behavioral therapies while also engaging with colleagues about clinical observations and their significance. Above having a strong work ethic and being detail-oriented, Yale POWER prioritizes highly collaborative and collegial relationships within the post-doc cohort and with faculty, who make it a point to be highly responsive and accessible. Plus, there will be opportunities to discuss pros and cons of the various outstanding pizza options in New Haven, and to marvel at the perks of having a "handsome" canine mascot for the university.
For both positions, members of under-represented groups are especially encouraged to apply as are individuals who have interests in health disparities and eating/weight disorders. Several on-going studies are examining bias and disparities.
Start date is July 2022 (although start date may be negotiable if desired). Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and will be accepted until positions are filled.
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 (email@example.com).
