Recruitment for the 2019-20 training year is complete. Please check back in Fall 2019 for positions we will offer for the 2020-21 training year.

The postdoctoral fellowship program EBTCS was developed in 2003 and offers opportunities for advanced evidence-based psychotherapy training in the following areas of specialization: adult anxiety disorders, child anxiety disorders, eating disorders, and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). Not all positions are offered in any given year.

EBTCS is committed to providing state-of-the-art clinical training, as we believe that high-quality training is an essential component of disseminating evidence-based treatments. All postdoctoral fellowship positions at EBTCS are 2-year appointments (unless otherwise indicated) and include a combination of clinical (18-20 direct service hours per week) and administrative duties (10 hours per week). Fellows receive 2 hours of supervision per week, participate in weekly treatment team meetings, and receive several forms of didactic training.

As if all of that weren’t enough, you would also be living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, where you can hike, bike, ski, fish, kayak, raft, paddle-board and camp (virtually) anytime! If city-living is more your style, Seattle has all those amenities within minutes of where you would be working, including: first-rate shopping, theater, concerts, four (soon-to-be five) professional sports teams, and award-winning restaurants.
