    The Department of Psychiatry at New York-Presbyterian Hospital (NYPH) Westchester Behavioral Health
    Center in White Plains, New York is accepting applications for a two-year postdoctoral psychology
    fellowship position available in our Eating Disorders Program.
    The fellowship position in Eating Disorders aims to prepare the next generation of scientist-practitioners for
    careers in academic research and clinical applications within the specialty area of eating disorders. In
    consultation with a member of the Eating Disorders faculty, the fellow will develop a training plan selecting
    specialized clinical training in treating individuals with eating disorders. The population being treated
    includes adolescents and adults diagnosed with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and related disorders of
    weight and eating. Because of the high comorbidity of eating disorders with mood and personality disorders,
    the fellow will have opportunities to gain a diversity of experiences. The training plan will include
    involvement in both inpatient and outpatient settings, as well as, experience doing individual, family, and
    group work. Fellows will be able to attend various didactics and Case Conferences that will help to broaden
    their knowledge. Opportunities to participate in clinical studies are available and independent investigation
    will be encouraged.
