The Department of Psychiatry at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center is seeking a faculty psychologist to join our team and help expand the mental and behavioral health services of children, adolescents, and families in West Texas. This position will provide a unique opportunity for involvement in an innovative, stepped-care model that includes outpatient, day treatment, intensive outpatient, and crisis stabilization services, all of which will be housed in one location within Covenant Children’s Hospital in Lubbock, Texas. This position will also include involvement in programs developed by the Texas Child Mental Health Care Consortium, which utilize telemedicine to provide services to youth within school settings across the state.

The psychologist will work collaboratively with a team of providers (e.g., nurses, developmental pediatricians, social workers, marriage and family therapists, licensed professional counselors, psychiatrists, psychologists, etc.) to provide comprehensive, evidenced-based care for youth with a range of behavioral and emotional difficulties. The position is primarily clinical, with responsibilities that include providing diagnostic assessments and evidence-based treatments to youth and families, as well as engaging in team-based consultation about their service needs. Further, given the nature of the educational setting at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, the psychologist will be actively involved in the teaching and supervision of psychology and psychiatry students, residents, and fellows. Program development will be an integral component of the position, and opportunities for collaborative research are available.

Qualifications include a Ph.D./Psy.D. in clinical, counseling, or school psychology (or a closely related field) from an APA-accredited doctoral program, completion of an APA-accredited internship, and completion of a post-doctoral fellowship. Specific training in collaborative, interdisciplinary models of services for youth is highly preferred. Clinical experience in crisis stabilization, intensive outpatient, and/or day treatment units is also preferred, but not necessary. Applicants should be licensed or license-eligible in Texas prior to the start of the position.
