Eating Disorders Center for Treatment and Resarch Psychology Clinical Postdoctoral Fellowship

Welcome to the UC San Diego Eating Disorders Center for Treatment and Research (UCSD EDC) Postdoctoral Fellowship Program! Our program aspires to educate and train future researchers and clinicians to be on the cutting edge of eating disorder science and practice. The UCSD EDC is an international leader in developing and employing new treatments based on research on the neurobiology of anorexia and bulimia.

Our center provides high quality, state-of-the art care to adults, adolescents, and children. Research from our center is responsible for advancing the eating disorder field's understanding of how neurobiological processes create and sustain eating disorders. It is our goal to recruit talented eating disorder clinicians and researchers who can further our center's mission of providing high quality care and developing innovative new treatments for eating disorders.

Our programs are growing quickly and we accept applications for both clinical and research postdoctoral fellows on a rolling basis starting in early fall. Individuals in our program have the opportunity to train alongside world renowned eating disorder expert, Dr. Walt Kaye, and a team of highly skilled researchers and clinicians. Fellowship programs are individualized to the trainee and opportunities are available in multiple clinical settings to encourage diversity of training. See below for a description of available fellowship positions.
