    The UCSD Eating Disorders Center is accepting applications for its clinical postdoctoral fellowship. We are seeking applicants interested in working with our adult population. We treat patients with Anorexia Nervosa (AN), Bulimia Nervosa (BN), Binge Eating Disorder (BED), Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (EDNOS), and Other Specified Eating or Feeding Disorder (OSFED). Our program also offers targeted treatment for other conditions that are seen in patients with eating disorders, including substance abuse/dependence and trauma. We have a strong preference for candidates who have experience or interest in DBT or FBT.

    Our fellowships provide in-depth training in evidence-based treatment approaches. In addition to weekly individual supervision and mentorship, this training includes an intensive orientation to eating disorders, an intensive DBT training, and an intensive FBT training at the beginning of the training year; along with weekly didactics and multiple weekly supervision groups and consultation teams; and occasional opportunities for additional training such as conferences. You will have the opportunity to work closely with a multidisciplinary team, and many of our postdocs stay on in permanent staff or faculty positions. Job duties include individual, group, and family therapy, with opportunities to participate in treatment development research. Clinical fellows typically cross-train in two different programs (one year in each) to maximize both breadth and depth of training.

    We will accept applications until positions are filled. If you are interested in applying for a fellowship position, please send a cover letter and CV to Jessie Menzel, PhD, at
