Oxford College invites applications for two (2) Staff Clinicians to join our team at Counseling and Career Services to serve a diverse student population for a small campus (around 1000 students), part of the larger Emory University.? We are looking for skilled and creative clinicians, able to provide quality care in individual and group counseling, as well as engage in community-level interventions toward promoting a supportive campus environment.  This is a regular 10-month position, with vacation as well as health insurance and retirement benefits.  The staff clinician provides culturally competent intake assessments, triage appointments, individual therapy, group therapy, and occasional crisis intervention and case management.  This position also involves delivering innovative and strategic outreach services, consultation, and student-leader training.  


Located 36 miles east of Atlanta on Emory’s original campus in Oxford, Georgia, Oxford College is a small campus of 1st and 2nd year undergraduates who are part of Emory University and will continue their undergraduate study on the Atlanta campus after completing their 2 years on Oxford's campus.  The campus has approximately 1000 students from diverse backgrounds, part of a highly selective Liberal Arts institution which places a high value in student leadership development and experiential learning.  


A master's degree or higher in an applied mental health field (e.g., Social Work, Counseling, Psychology) from an accredited institution,

Two years of prior counseling experience, preferably within a counseling center, or experience providing mental health services to a young adult, diverse population. 

Current licensure in the state of Georgia in your discipline (i.e., as a LCSW, LPC or LP).  Exceptional candidates within six months of licensure may be considered.

Demonstrated engagement in serving a diverse community with a solid foundation in identity development and expertise in providing mental health services to under-served and or marginalized client populations (i.e., ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, gender identity /expression, income level and generational access to higher education, nationality, religious/spiritual background, varying ability levels, etc.)

Counseling expertise and experience in addressing any of the following would especially strengthen a candidate’s application:  trauma, substance abuse, challenges facing neuro-diverse students, and students navigating challenges related to micro and macro aggressions against marginalized and oppressed communities.

Candidates with skills and creativity utilizing social media, audio/visual apps for development of outreach material, and skills in graphic design are a plus.


Salary and benefits are competitive.  (Note: this is a 10-month position, which impacts that annual salary, although fringe benefits apply for 12 months of the year. )


For consideration of your application, all candidates must upload both a resume AND cover letter describing your interest in this position to our Human Resources platform at https://staff-emory.icims.com/jobs/72807/job
