Postdoctoral Fellowships at The Emily Program, Twin Cities, MN

We are currently accepting applications on a rolling basis for one to two fellowship openings during the 2018-2019 scholastic year.

Position Summary:

The Emily Program, Twin Cities (see our location page for Minnesota) offers Postdoctoral Psychology Fellowships in adult eating disorder specialty services.

This fellowship will include direct contact with clients with eating disorder diagnoses as well as team involvement with individual, group and intensive program colleagues, including therapy, dietetic, psychiatry, yoga, art therapy and medical professionals.
