The Counseling and Psychiatric Service at Georgetown University has announces a position opening for an International Student Specialist.

The International Student Specialist position entails assessment, individual and group therapy, referrals where needed, and outreach and consultation to our growing community of international students.  We are especially interested in finding a clinician who has demonstrated experience reaching out to students from the Pacific Rim, South Asia, and the Middle East.  Language skills, for instance Mandarin or Arabic, would be a great asset. 


Georgetown University, a Congressionally chartered institution, was founded in 1789 and is the oldest Catholic and Jesuit university in the nation. There are 18,459 students in the University’s four undergraduate schools (Georgetown College, the School of Foreign Service, Nursing and Health Studies, and the School of Business), three graduate divisions (Law, Medicine, and the Graduate School), and the School of Continuing Studies. Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service also has a campus in Doha, Qatar.

Region Description:

Washington, D.C., the nation’s capital, is the center of governmental and political activity in the United States and an architecturally distinguished city with world class museums, readily identifiable national monuments and government buildings, and corporate and trade association and nonprofit organization headquarters. It has an excellent public transportation system.

The Georgetown business district is a bustling center of activity with substantial shopping opportunities, restaurants, clubs, and an active waterfront. The Georgetown residential area near the University retains an 18th and 19th century charm with vintage townhouses and brick sidewalks.

Historically, Georgetown was a thriving Maryland tobacco port in the 1700’s. When the District of Columbia was carved out of Maryland and Virginia, Georgetown was included within the District’s boundaries. The City of Washington, originally a separate village within the District, grew into and annexed Georgetown in the 1800’s.

Washington, D.C., is about two hours from Atlantic coast beaches and about two hours from the mountains in Virginia and West Virginia.


Doctorate in clinical or counseling psychology or a related field, or an MSW.  


Previous college mental health experience and demonstrated experience working with the issues noted in the position description.  Licensure in the District of Columbia as a social worker or psychologist.  If not yet licensed, licensure must be achieved within two years of the starting date.

In addition, as part of the University's commitment to diversity, clinicians with demonstrated specialized knowledge and experience working with diverse populations (e.g., students of color, LGBTQ students, international or first generation students) are strongly encouraged to apply.




Cover letter, vita, and 4 letters of reference (not just contact information for references but their actual letters).  Apply directly through the Georgetown University Human Resources website for the International Student Specialist and Sport Psychologist positions, using the "Apply Online" feature.
