Currently Accepting Applications

The Eating Disorders Center (EDC) at the Evidence Based Treatment Centers of Seattle (EBTCS) invites applications for our post-doctoral fellowship! We are accepting applications for a joint DBT/Eating Disorders Center postdoctoral position, as well. The EDC is a multidisciplinary, outpatient center specializing in evidence-based eating disorder treatment. We are part of EBTCS, which is a nationally recognized specialty clinic in the heart of beautiful downtown Seattle and is comprised of 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.

The position will include training by experts in the use of evidence-based treatments for eating disorders, including Enhanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT-E) and Family-Based Treatment (FBT). Fellows provide outpatient therapy for clients with the full range of eating related disorders and also have the opportunity to work with clients in our intensive outpatient (IOP) program for Anorexia Nervosa. 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. Fellows receive two hours of supervision each week, attend our weekly EDC team and CE program, and have opportunities for additional training. We love including post-docs as an integral part of our dynamic team.

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.
