Candidates for this position must prize excellence in teaching and mentoring, and have a strong desire to work with visionary and collaborative faculty in building a stellar program focused on rural mental healthcare.
With a commitment to diversity, the MS MFT program has a strong curriculum informed by the needs of under-served rural populations in southern Oregon and northern California. These populations include Klamath Tribes families, migratory farm worker families, and families struggling with multi-generational poverty.
The new MFT program is housed in Oregon Tech’s Humanities and Social Sciences department - a collegial environment that encourages interdisciplinary collaboration, particularly between healthcare and the social sciences. Successful candidates will be expected to provide service to the university and community, contribute to achieving departmental goals, and maintain professional development activities.
Oregon Tech's main, residential campus is located in Klamath Falls in beautiful Southern Oregon nestled on the eastern slope of the Cascade Mountains. The 190-acre campus offers spectacular views of Upper Klamath Lake, pine-studded knolls and snow-capped peaks from nearly every building. Klamath Falls, a city of about 20,000 residents (45,000 in urban growth area), is located in south-central Oregon, about 20 miles from the California border. Known as Oregon's "City of Sunshine," Klamath Falls enjoys about 300 days of blue skies each year. According to National Geographic's "50 Best Places to Live" list, Klamath Falls ranks No. 10. With median home prices at $156,000 and an abundance of majestic views and waterfront property, coupled with mountain fresh air, we couldn’t agree more that Klamath Falls is an ideal place to live.

About Oregon Tech
The Oregon Institute of Technology (Oregon Tech) is an institution founded on the principles of excellence through hands-on knowledge.We believe in giving students a rigorous, practical education while applying cutting-edge concepts for real-world solutions.As the Pacific Northwest’s only public institute of technology, we take pride in our mission to deliver technology education. We continually partner with industry leaders to ensure that our programs and classes are at the top of the board with adapting to new technology and preparing students for workforce demands.This real-world focus gives our students a competitive edge: 90 percent are employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation. Year after year, our baccalaureate graduates earn excellent starting salaries. We also attribute this to our dedicated professors, who provide personalized attention and are genuinely invested in their students’ learning. A total enrollment of about 4,000 allows for an intimate campus environment distinguished by small classes and a student-to-faculty ratio of 20:1. This personal approach provides many benefits of a prestigious private education at a public price.Our individualized... and applied approach to teaching, which blends theory and practice, is the main reason our alumni are so avidly recruited. Whether they study software engineering, vascular technology, management, or dental hygiene, Oregon Tech students have amazing opportunities to apply what they learn in lab-based classes, clinics, externships and workplaces. This practical focus is reinforced in the classroom by instructors who come to Oregon Tech with relevant business, industrial, or clinical experience.And in every program, major studies are underscored by a general-education core that broadens students’ understanding of the world and teaches them to communicate effectively, solve problems and think for themselves. Oregon Tech is best known for its traditional engineering and technological core, but new degree options (and surprising twists on old ones) are remarkably multi-dimensional. A Geomatics student might use GIS technology to survey an archeological excavation, or a Mechanical Engineering student may complete a cross-disciplinary application in sustainability. A Communication Studies major might compile a technical manual for an Oregon Renewable Energy Center project. Information Technology and Health Informatics or Management students might specialize in allied health management.Campus LocationsOregon Tech has locations throughout the Pacific Northwest.
