Junior Faculty Position in Obesity & Eating Disorders with Focus on Bariatric Surgery

Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, CT

The Program for Obesity, Weight, and Eating Research (POWER) at the Yale School of Medicine is seeking qualified candidates for a Junior Faculty position focused on treating patients following bariatric surgery with concerns about disordered eating and/or insufficient weight loss and associated distress. This new position involves roles as a clinician and project coordinator of treatment studies funded by NIH and foundation grants. This position can start at any time from Spring to Summer 2021.

Successful candidates will work with Drs. Valentina Ivezaj and Carlos M. Grilo and their interdisciplinary team. These new studies supported by NIH grants will provide clinical-research opportunities for individuals interested in careers working with obesity, binge eating, and bariatric surgery. The positions are tailored towards persons interested in careers in clinical centers (i.e., clinical-educators; clinical-service developers, supervisors, and leaders; scientist-practitioners) in academic medical school and health-care delivery settings. The position will include a combination of clinical work and study coordination. Clinical work will involve performing assessments and delivering treatments to patients with loss-of-control eating, other eating/weight concerns, and/or insufficient weight loss following bariatric surgery. Study coordination will involve protocol development and implementation, as well as administrative oversight of NIH-funded treatment studies. Although the primary role will focus on patients following bariatric surgery, persons in these roles will have opportunities to work on other treatment studies for obesity and binge eating.

Although this position is tailored towards clinical-educators and service-developers/leaders (rather than research position), the experience occurs with a vibrant, collaborative, and productive clinical-research center. Thus, this position should contribute to and facilitate clinical-research via natural synergies between clinical research roles in our center.

Candidates must have a doctoral degree in clinical, health, or counseling psychology, completed an APA-approved internship, and experience with bariatric surgery. Strong candidates with other clinical credentials (e.g., nursing) will receive consideration. Members of under-represented groups are especially encouraged to apply.. Start date is Spring – Summer 2021. Applications will be reviewed starting March 2021 (and will be accepted until the position is filled).

Contact Information:

Interested candidates should send a CV and statement of interests (reference letters will be requested after initial review) by email to both: Carlos M. Grilo, Ph.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology, Yale University carlos.grilo@yale.edu and to Valentina Ivezaj, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Director of Obesity and Bariatric Research Initiatives, Yale University valentina.ivezaj@yale.edu.
