The Utah Center for Evidence Based Treatment (UCEBT) is comprised of a group of mental health professionals trained in the leading evidence based interventions. The unique mission of UCEBT is to provide comprehensive outpatient treatment for psychologically and medically complex clients. We are dedicated to embodying the clinical scientist model, including providing excellent care, monitoring client outcomes, remaining abreast of developments in the field, and training others, within a culture of collaboration and support.

Our postdoctoral fellows will gain expertise with diverse and complex clinical diagnoses within the supportive context of an interdisciplinary team approach. Fellows will have the opportunity to see clients in the age range of their interest(s), including children, adolescents, and adults. Fellows will receive advanced training and ongoing supervision in evidence-based treatments (e.g. DBT, ACT, CBT, PE), participate in multidisciplinary treatment teams, grow new programs, learn the business side of a growing practice, supervise, and have protected time and funding to work toward licensure. The Postdoctoral fellowship positions will be primarily clinical in nature, but will also include opportunities for research, program development, administrative tasks, or community outreach. Many of us hold appointments at and collaborate with the nearby University of Utah. Our Center is committed to fostering a diverse, vibrant, and responsive work environment. We adapt to support the individual and family needs of our staff, including flexible work schedules and opportunities for advancement. Employee happiness and work-life balance are regularly discussed in meetings and supported through our Center policies. Salt Lake City is a metropolitan hub of the West with access to abundant outdoor recreation activities, an ideal setting to balance intellectual and personal development. Please see to learn more about us as an organization or also feel free to email with any questions.
