Job Description

Dr. Levinson, the Director of the Eating Anxiety Treatment (EAT) lab at the University of Louisville (UofL), is hiring a full-time post-doctoral fellow to work on a National Institute of Health supported study building a new precision treatment for eating disorders and identifying how individual treatment mechanisms relate to public health outcomes, individual disease burden, medical comorbidities, and social determinants of health. This position is part clinical and part research and can be tailored to the individual fellows needs. This position will involve working with clinical participants with eating disorders, supervising study therapists, supervising implementation and analysis of studies, assisting Dr. Levinson with training therapists to complete assessments and deliver the treatment protocol, conducting diagnostic assessments, learning advanced idiographic methodologies, working on grant proposals and publications, mentoring study coordinators and graduate and undergraduate students, assisting with data preparation and analysis, and working with a large interdisciplinary team at UofL. The post-doctoral fellow will work very closely with Dr. Levinson on a day-to-day basis.

Opportunities for involvement in grants, publications, and presentations at national conferences are plentiful. Funds are available for conferences and professional development.

This position is renewable for up to five years and preference will be given to a post-doc who can commit to at least two years.
