Position Announcement

The Department of Educational Psychology at Texas A&M University seeks applicants for a clinical faculty member at the rank of clinical assistant or clinical associate professor who will direct its Counseling and Assessment Clinic (CAC) in collaboration with our two APA- accredited doctoral programs in Counseling Psychology (CPSY) and School Psychology (SPSY). The CAC’s priorities are to provide supervised clinical training experiences for CPSY and SPSY doctoral students while delivering low-cost, high quality psychological services to support the local community. Students in these professional psychology programs provide all services under the supervision of CPSY and SPSY faculty who are licensed psychologists.

In operation since 1984, the CAC has operations on two campuses. The CAC’s Community Health Center location (CAC-CHC) is just 2 miles from Texas A&M University and offers counseling services to the local community. CAC-Milner is located on the university’s main campus and provides assessment services for students and the community.

We seek applicants with experience in clinical training settings who are skilled in providing/supervising evidenced-based mental health interventions for diverse populations. The successful applicant will have experiences in daily clinic operations, EMR scheduling software maintenance, and clinic staff management. Applicants should share our dedication to high-quality teaching and graduate student mentorship. Applicants with experience serving child, adolescent, and adult populations are highly preferred.

The CAC Director reports to the Executive Director of the CAC and serves as a clinical (non-tenure- track) faculty member in the Department of Educational Psychology. This is a 9-month faculty appointment with additional summer employment available to help support year-round clinic operations. Rank (i.e., assistant, associate, or full clinical professor) and salary is commensurate with level of experience.

The position responsibilities include (but are not limited to):

  1. Administer daily CAC operations.
