Postdoctoral Psychology Fellowship in Eating Disorders

The Department of Psychiatry at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital (NYPH) Westchester Division 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 inpatient, partial hospital, and outpatient settings, as well as, experience doing individual,
family, and group work. Fellows will be able to attend an Eating Disorder Seminar and Case Conferences
that will help to broaden their knowledge. Participation in clinical research activities will be emphasized.
Opportunities to participate in clinical studies are available and independent investigation will be
encouraged.
