Position Description:    

The Ballmer Institute for Children’s Behavioral Health, based in Portland, Oregon, establishes a new national model for behavioral and mental health care by uniting UO’s nationally recognized research programs in education, psychology, and prevention science, Oregon public schools and families, and community support groups in the creation and delivery of promotion, prevention, and intervention programs that can be part of the daily lives of children and adolescents. This groundbreaking initiative was announced on March 1, 2022, and made possible by the extraordinary gift of more than $425 million from Connie and Steve Ballmer, co-founders of Ballmer Group Philanthropy. The Institute will serve youth K-12 while prioritizing the needs of children, adolescents, and families who have been persistently and/or historically underserved.

Clinical professor faculty (assistant, associate, or professor rank) serve as the essential link between teaching and practice at The Ballmer Institute for Children’s Behavioral Health. Clinical professor faculty are partners in applied research and the delivery of comprehensive, responsive, evidence-based behavioral health services at schools, healthcare, and community training sites. Clinical professor faculty work in coordination with urban school districts and other training site staff to deliver promotion and prevention programs/interventions aimed at improving the behavioral health and wellness of all children and adolescents.

Clinical professor faculty oversee the integration of Ballmer Institute undergraduate students at training sites providing instruction and supervision while maintaining alignment and communication with site staff. Clinical faculty will be expected to provide direct behavioral health services and teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate level as aligned with their areas of professional, instructional, or research experience in a way that prepares students to engage effectively with youth K-12 from a great variety of backgrounds.

Clinical professor faculty who have effectively worked to address disparities in one of the priority areas: behavioral health promotion and prevention, mental health risk screening, and indicated behavioral health care for youth experiencing emerging behavioral health problems in historically and persistently underserved communities and/or indigenous communities are encouraged to apply.

The UO is committed to creating and maintaining compassionate and inclusive learning and working environments for all learners, visitors, and employees, and envisioning collaborative community environments that enhance civility and embrace inclusion.
