    Clinical-Research Postdoctoral Fellowship in Eating Disorder Research
    Dr. Levinson, the Director of the Eating Anxiety Treatment (EAT) lab at the University of Louisville (UofL), is expecting (pending release of funding) to hire a full-time post-doctoral fellow for Summer or Fall 2021 to work on a National Institute of Mental Health supported randomized controlled trial of virtual imaginal exposure therapy for eating disorders. This position will involve working with clinical participants with eating disorders, supervising implementation of a virtual exposure treatment study, conducting diagnostic assessments, learning how to work with mobile technology assessment of fear learning, working on grant proposals and publications, mentoring graduate and undergraduate students, assisting with data preparation and analysis, and working with a large interdisciplinary team both at UofL and with cross-site collaborators. The post-doctoral fellow will work very closely with Dr. Levinson on a day to day basis. Supervision towards licensure is available. 

    Opportunities for involvement in grants, including mentored grants, publications, and presentations at national conferences are plentiful. Teaching opportunities are available if desired. Additional clinical opportunities and supervision are also available. This position is renewable for up to three years and preference will be given to a post-doc who can commit to at least two years. Minimum experience is a doctorate in psychology or a related field. This post-doctoral fellowship will help propel the fellow into a tenure-track or research faculty position.
