About Our Training Program

The postdoctoral fellowship program at EBTCS was developed in 2003 and offers opportunities for advanced evidence-based psychotherapy training. This year we have openings in each of our four centers – the Anxiety Center, the Child Anxiety Center, the Eating Disorder Center, and the DBT Center.

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 positions start in Fall 2022. The starting salary is $52,000/year, and once licensed this increases to $60,000/year. In addition to one hour of 1:1 supervision, fellows participate in weekly group supervision, our didactics series, and our continuing education program. Although each position requires a 2-year commitment, there is an opportunity in the second year for promotion to a staff-level training position if the fellow has demonstrated meeting program-specific competencies. This position includes 1 hour of individual supervision per week and an increase in guaranteed base pay to $90,000/year. Most fellows at EBTCS over the last 5 years have been hired into a training staff-level position at the start of their second year. If individuals continue on as staff after the 2-year commitment, guaranteed base pay increases to $110,000/year in the 3rd year, with a schedule of planned increases after that. Last year, including bonuses, the average, annual compensation for staff at this level was over $130,000.

All postdoctoral fellowship positions at EBTCS include a combination of clinical (16-18 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.

What Makes Our Training Program So Remarkable?

  • Training and supervision with experts in your chosen area of interest, with the goal of becoming an expert yourself.
  • Working in a compassionate and supportive environment where everyone genuinely cares for their clients, one another, and is happy to come to work each day.
  • Being a part of a consultation team that meets weekly to discuss cases, brainstorm interventions, and provide support.
  • Receiving weekly didactics in a wide range of evidence-based interventions.
  • Participating in an in-house, weekly APA-approved continuing education (CE) program, where you can easily earn the number of CE credits required for your professional license.
  • Participating in an innovative in-house, practice-based research program that has resulted in paper publications and a range of presentations and posters at national conferences.
  • Earning a competitive post-doc salary starting at $52,000/year and increasing to $60,000/year after licensure.
  • Receiving great benefits, including medical, dental, and vision insurance, a yearly bus/light rail pass, and a 4% matched 401K (yes, even starting as a post-doc)
  • 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.
