Print Record

Utah Center for Evidence Based Treatment
Salt Lake City, Utah

Starts on Monday, September 6, 2021

Applications due Sunday, December 13, 2020

This program has chosen to follow the APPIC Postdoctoral Selection Guidlines.

Our postdoctoral fellows will gain expertise with diverse and complex clinical diagnoses within the supportive context of an interdisciplinary team approach. Fellows will have the opportunity to see clients in the age range of their interest(s), including children, adolescents, and adults; however, willingness to see adult clients is necessary to ensure a full caseload. Fellows will receive advanced training and ongoing supervision in evidence-based treatments (e.g. DBT, ACT, CBT, PE), participate in consultation teams, grow new programs, learn the business side of a growing practice, supervise, and have protected time and funding to work toward licensure. Trainees will see clients on one primary and one or more secondary teams throughout their postdoc year. Current teams accepting trainees are Anxiety and Mood, Assessment and Testing, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Trauma, Stress, and Resilience. All teams provide opportunities for work with individuals across the lifespan, couples, and groups. 


The Postdoctoral fellowship positions will be primarily clinical in nature, but will also include opportunities for research, program development, administrative tasks, or community outreach. Many of us hold appointments at and collaborate with the nearby University of Utah. Stipend will range from $36,000-42,000 dependent upon licensure status throughout the training year. Our Center is committed to fostering a diverse, vibrant, and responsive work environment. We adapt to support the individual and family needs of our staff, including flexible work schedules and opportunities for advancement. Employee happiness and work-life balance are regularly discussed in meetings and supported through our Center policies. Salt Lake City is a metropolitan hub of the West with access to abundant outdoor recreation activities, an ideal setting to balance intellectual and personal development. Please see www.ucebt.com to learn more about us as an organization or also feel free to email michelle.ertl@ucebt.com with any questions. 

All interviews will be completed virtually at the end of January and beginning of February. Applicants will be notified if they are no longer in consideration for a position.
