The Department of Psychiatry at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital (NYPH) Westchester Division in White Plains, New York is accepting applications for a two-year postdoctoral psychology fellowship position available in our Eating Disorders Program.

The fellowship position in Eating Disorders aims to prepare the next generation of scientist-practitioners for careers in academic research and clinical applications within the specialty area of eating disorders.

Opportunities for independent investigation will be encouraged.
