Two Year Postdoctoral Fellowship

OCD & Anxiety Focus

We are actively recruiting a fellow for the 2023-2025 cycle, and will consider applications on a rolling basis.

Our Setting

KCCAT is a fun and supportive team-staffed facility for evidence-based treatment, training, and research, with a focus on providing high-quality care plans and patient options for accelerated and community-based services. KCCAT was the first (and still only!) team-based specialty anxiety, OCD, and related disorders treatment facility in the Kansas City metropolitan area. We are known locally and nationally for our commitment to and excellence in evidence-based treatment, scholarly inquiry, and education. Postdoctoral fellows will enjoy a newly renovated, well-appointed, and spacious work environment, flexible hours, and patient-tailored services free from managed care, with ways of combining direct clinical duties with additional program development, scholarship, and research. Substantial benefits include paid health and professional insurance, continuing education, family leave, relocation assistance, available retirement plan with company match, and more.

Ideal Candidate

Excellent opportunity for an evidence-based, early career psychologist looking to either expand upon or gain extensive experience with OCD, anxiety, mood, and related conditions across the lifespan. A strong CBT orientation and training is required; comfort assisting in services for both youth and adults is strongly preferred.

The ideal candidate will be creative, organized, self-disciplined, work well within a team approach, and possess an appreciation of and dedication to evidence-based treatment. Preference will be given to individuals who have experience in utilizing exposure-based, behavioral (e.g., contingency management, habit reversal training), and cognitive/acceptance approaches for OCD, anxiety, mood and related conditions; however, promising applicants who are looking to receive training in this area will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Qualifications and Responsibilities

Required base qualifications include doctorate from an APA-accredited degree program and internship, licensure-eligibility in Kansas and Missouri.

Fellowship Description

Primary activities will include delivery of evidenced-based psychological services, assisting with supervision of doctoral student practicum trainees, and helping to develop, deliver, and promote center programing reflecting KCCAT’s strong treatment, research, and educational mission. A detailed breakdown of fellowship activities can be requested by email.

KCCAT employs a developmental approach to training, and postdoctoral fellows can expect to have their training experience tailored to their specific needs. Given our team-based approach, fellows are able to begin their fellowship with a combination of shadowing, co-therapy, and independent clinical work befitting their training background and comfort with anxiety specialty care. Fellows receive at minimum one hour of supervision from a licensed psychologist per week, as well as three hours weekly of team-wide case discussions. Additionally, fellows are encouraged to attend monthly practicum didactics or co-lead/lead these meetings as applicable to experience and interest level. Fellows are supported in joining ongoing or initiating their own research projects. Our team is frequently sought out by local organizations and educational institutions to present on a variety of topics, and fellows are highly encouraged to take part in these when available.
