Description

Located 36 miles east of Atlanta on Emory’s original campus in Oxford Georgia, Oxford College invites applications for a Staff Clinician to join our team at Counseling and Career Services. We are looking for an experienced clinician to serve our students, typically highly motivated for therapy, presenting with issues ranging from developmentally expected challenges of college life to more significant impairment and distress. We are a small two-year campus that is part of Emory University, where our students transition to after their sophomore year. This is a regular 10-month position, aligned with the August - May school schedule, with vacation as well as health insurance and retirement benefits. Salary is competitive.

 

JOB DESCRIPTION:

We welcome candidates with interests or experience running counseling groups. Position also involves occasional consultation to parents, faculty, staff, or fellow students regarding struggling students. Because our office highlights a community-level approach to campus well-being, this position also involves developing and fostering relationships and programming with faculty, staff, administrators, and student leaders toward promotion of a supportive campus culture.
