McGovern Medical School at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth), a leading academic health center, invites applications for a full-time Non-Tenure Clinical Track Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics within the Children’s Learning Institute. Specifically, we are recruiting for a licensed psychologist to contribute to the department’s mission to provide quality assessment and intervention services to children and families within the Dan L. Duncan Children’s Neurodevelopmental Clinic. While the position is primarily clinical in orientation, the selected candidate will also have opportunities to participate in research, teaching (e.g., developmental pediatric residents, psychology interns), administrative activities, and other services/committees required by the department.  Opportunities for collaboration are available through the Children’s Learning Institute, which is uniquely comprised of faculty from a variety of disciplines who engage in applied scientific research, provision of clinical and educational services, and policy activities aimed at improving the outcomes of vulnerable children.


Position Key Accountabilities:


  • Completing neuropsychological evaluations on children and adolescents between the ages of 3 and 22 within the Dan L. Duncan Children’s Neurodevelopmental Clinic. 

  • Gathering information from educators and parents that assist in determining the diagnostic status and appropriate intervention course for children and adolescents. 

  • Working with Duncan Clinic faculty to provide ongoing training for pediatric and psychology trainees. 

  • Participating in administrative duties including committee service.

  • Collaborating with Duncan Clinic and Children Learning Institute faculty (e.g., psychologists, pediatricians, developmental pediatricians, and researchers) on research and educational initiatives.   

  • Anticipating being involved in the recruitment, selection, and hiring of new or additional psychologists to the group.

  • Providing feedback regarding office operations including hiring staff, office logistics, and recruitment of new faculty.

  • Participating in the education and training of medical students, residents, as well as psychology interns and postdoctoral fellows

  • Supporting the research mission of the department and university through:

         a) Working to establish research collaborations with CLI or UT Health Faculty

         b) Providing information and education to potentially eligible research participants for ongoing and new research studies


The primary practice location will be in Dan L. Duncan Children’s Neurodevelopmental Clinic.  However, opportunities for work in specialty clinics outside of the TMC might arise.      




The selected candidate for the position must have a Ph.D. in psychology and be licensed as a psychologist in Texas.  Provisional licensees should not apply.  Appropriate training in the administration, scoring, and interpretation of neuropsychological assessment is critical for successful candidates.  .  Candidates who can demonstrate knowledge of assessing and providing services to children with a range of psychological disorders (e.g., ADHD, ASD, Learning Disabilities, Anxiety Disorders, and Depressive Disorders) along with other medical conditions (e.g., Epilepsy and TBIs) will be preferred.  In addition, this position requires a minimum of three years of experience completing neuropsychological assessments with children and adolescents between the ages of 3 and 22 post-licensure/internship and a current license in the state of Texas.


Qualified applicants must demonstrate a commitment to excellence, discovery, and service, have the potential to be outstanding in their field of expertise and share an interest in fulfilling the common goals of McGovern Medical School at UTHealth and the Children Learning Institute.  Preferred applicants will also demonstrate excellent skills in neuropsychological assessment, strong communication and interpersonal skills with strong potential for a leadership role within the department.
