Currently Accepting Applications

The Child Anxiety Center at the Evidence Based Treatment Centers of Seattle (EBTCS) is seeking applicants for a post-doctoral fellowship in child and adolescent anxiety and related disorders! Fellows will participate as members of a multidisciplinary (psychology and psychiatry) pediatric anxiety disorders treatment team and receive specialized training and supervision in evidence-based treatments for anxiety and related disorders, with an emphasis on exposure-based treatments. Clinical responsibilities will include providing individual therapy for child, adolescent, and young adult clients with the full range of anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorders, parent training interventions, as well as working with clients in our intensive outpatient (IOP) program. Activities may also include participating in program development and administration, assisting with our client outcomes monitoring program, and participating in our practice-based research program.

All positions start in Fall 2022. The starting salary is $52,000/year and once licensed this increases to $60,000/year. Although the position requires a 2-year commitment, there is an opportunity in the second year for promotion to a training staff-level position if the fellow has demonstrated meeting program-specific competencies. This staff-level 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.

The Child Anxiety Center is part of the Evidence Based Treatment Centers of Seattle (EBTCS), a nationally-recognized specialty clinic in the heart of downtown Seattle. EBTCS is home to four specialty clinics, including the DBT Center, the Anxiety Center, the Child Anxiety Center, and the Eating Disorders Center. We have a compassionate, supportive work environment that prioritizes inclusivity as well as personal and professional growth. EBTCS strongly values diversity and is committed to building and maintaining an anti-racist culture through monthly meetings, presentations, and readings.
