Job Description

Dr. Levinson, the Director of the Eating Anxiety Treatment (EAT) lab at the University of Louisville (UofL), is appointing a full-time post-doctoral fellow to work on a National Institute of Health supported study building a new precision treatment for eating disorders and identifying how individual treatment mechanisms relate to public health outcomes, individual disease burden, medical comorbidities, and social determinants of health.
