The Johns Hopkins Eating Disorders Program, Baltimore, MD, USA - 1 postdoctoral fellowship

The Johns Hopkins Eating Disorders Program in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine is accepting applications for a two-year Clinical Research Postdoctoral Fellowship in Eating Disorders starting in Summer or Fall 2014. This fellowship is designed to provide experience in clinical research on eating disorders including factors affecting outcome of hospital-based behavioral treatment, the design and implementation of relapse prevention interventions for weight-restored anorexia nervosa, and translational studies of eating behavior. The position includes the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues studying animal models of eating disorders and mentorship in the areas of grant writing and manuscript preparation.

Requirements: Candidates must have a PhD or MD, experience with data management and SPSS. Familiarity with advanced statistical methods is preferred.

While the focus of the fellowship is clinical research, fellows have the opportunity for supervised clinical care of patients with eating disorders. Additional didactic opportunities includes weekly Grand Rounds and Departmental Research Conference through the Johns Hopkins Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences as well as weekly divisional research and clinical seminars. Several previous fellows have remained as faculty or staff at Johns Hopkins Medicine or have pursued faculty positions at other academic medical centers. To apply, send cover letter and CV to Dr. Angela Guarda, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and Director of the Eating Disorders Program, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, 600 N.
