The Department of Psychiatry at Yale School of Medicine is seeking qualified candidates for Postdoctoral Psychology Associate positions. Postdocs will participate in treatment studies for obesity and binge eating and in diverse clinical and community studies of eating/weight disorders.

Postdocs will work closely with faculty and other postdoctoral clinical-researchers in the Program for Obesity, Weight, and Eating Research (POWER) directed by Dr. Carlos Grilo.

Extensive mentored opportunities exist for publication and grant-writing.
