Bilingual Faculty position - Texas Childrens and Baylor College of Medicine, Houston Texas

The Psychology Section in the Department of Pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) is recruiting for a Bilingual Faculty Psychologist with a strong commitment to evidence-based practice and experience in delivering culturally-appropriate treatment and assessment to Spanish speaking patients and families within one or more of our behavioral health programs/services including: Anxiety Disorders, Disruptive Behavior Disorders, Pediatric Health Psychology, and Primary Care.  Experience with providing education and/or clinical training in the delivery of culturally-appropriate service to Latino or Spanish speaking patients and families is strongly preferred. Examples of education and clinical/training topics may include clinical practice to address culturally-related protective factors, health disparities, or social determinants of health (chronic stress/coping; family support) in Latino/Spanish speaking families. Academic rank is commensurate with experience. Qualified candidates must be graduates of APA accredited doctoral programs in clinical, school, or counseling psychology, and have completed an APA accredited internship with postdoctoral experience in child/adolescent psychology and be eligible for licensure as a Psychologist in Texas. We are interested in expanding our clinical, training, and research missions in multicultural behavioral health programs/services and are looking for an outstanding candidate to join our dynamic program and lead this effort.

Recent census data show that the greater Houston area contains over 5.5 million inhabitants, making Houston the 4th largest U.S. city. Houston is an affordable, international city that is a leader in the arts, education, and health care. The population base includes a wide variety of racial and ethnic groups that give Houston a rich diversity and cosmopolitan feel. In fact Houston is the most diverse large city in the U.S. and at Texas Children's we serve large Hispanic populations and other children and families from minority backgrounds. The Section of Psychology has over 35 full time faculty based at TCH. We value diversity and are committed to inclusion as well as the recruitment, retention, development and promotion of psychologists of all backgrounds and experiences. We believe this inclusion reflects the multicultural values and experiences of our patients, families and broader community.

Interested candidates should send a CV and letter of interest to M. Douglas Ris, Ph.D., Chief of the Psychology Service, Texas Children's Hospital and Head of the Psychology Section, Department of Pediatrics, Baylor College of Medicine, at dmris@texaschildrens.org<mailto:dmris@texaschildrens.org>.
