NC State University Counseling Center is hiring one full time, Permanent 9 month clinician assisting in all areas of Counseling Center functioning. We are seeking strong generalist clinicians with knowledge, skills and interest in providing outreach and diversity and inclusion efforts through the NC State Counseling Center.  Our center has a strong commitment to providing multiculturally affirming clinical services and outreach to the university community. 

Qualified candidates can articulate a vision for the needs of students in the university counseling environment and an understanding of the issues and dynamics of underserved populations.  Candidates need to have demonstrated interest and independent licensure status that makes them eligible to provide supervision and training to individuals from the Center’s Post-Masters Fellowship, Doctoral Psychology Internship, and/or Masters Intern cohorts.  Successful candidates need strong skills in the development and presentation of Outreach programming and a clearly demonstrated passion for work in the area of outreach, education and prevention.   Candidates should have a strong theoretical understanding of multicultural issues in mental health and will have experience working with diverse student populations (e.g. race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, etc.) as well as a record of building relationships within the university and surrounding community.  Please highlight any experience or expertise in the areas of working with veterans, international students, and students with disabilities.

Clinical staff provides personal, academic, and vocational counseling, and participates in group counseling and outreach services. The Counseling Center also offers crisis intervention and psychological/psychiatric assessment as well as consultation with others who have concerns about the mental/emotional state of NC State students. Our services are primarily short-term in nature and we make referrals to other helping professionals and community agencies as appropriate.


As a land-grant institution, NC State itself was born as an idea: that higher education should bring economic, societal and intellectual prosperity to the masses. From our origins teaching the agricultural and mechanical arts, we’ve grown to become a pre-eminent research enterprise that advances knowledge in science, technology, engineering, math, design, the humanities and social sciences, textiles and veterinary medicine.
Our students, faculty and staff take problems in hand and work with industry, government and nonprofit partners to solve them. Our 34,000-plus high-performing students apply what they learn in the real world, through research, internships, co-ops and world-changing service. That experiential education ensures they leave here with career-ready skills. And those skills come at a reasonable cost: NC State consistently rates as one of the best values in higher education.
