Job Description
William James College announces openings for full-time Teaching Faculty Fellows in the Doctoral Clinical Psychology Department beginning August 2022. The Fellowship offers a highly competitive salary and opportunities for career advancement at the College.

The Teaching Faculty Fellowship aims to recruit, train, and mentor recent graduates who have completed their doctoral degrees in Clinical or Counseling Psychology; and prepare new faculty to enter the nation's professoriate. The primary aim of the Fellowship is to develop a critical mass of exceptionally talented and well-trained faculty members who are historically underrepresented in academic settings. It endeavors to equip Fellows with the skills, knowledge, and expertise to engage in paradigm shifting inclusive teaching, advising, and research practices as well as in administrative and leadership positions in academia.

Eligibility Requirements: Applicants must be (1) recent graduates from the field of Clinical or Counseling Psychology whose graduate degrees were conferred in the past three years (including those who will complete their graduate studies by August 2022); and (2) individuals who identify with groups that are not considered majority identities or that have historically been less visible in academia (e.g., LGBTQIA+, individuals with disabilities, ethnic/racial minorities, military and veteran groups, etc.). Candidates with a strong interest in promoting diversity, equity and inclusion, and a demonstrated commitment to serving underserved communities are encouraged to apply.

Responsibilities: Teaching Faculty Fellows are involved in teaching, advising, and research supervision of graduate students. Additionally, they participate in didactic training on inclusive teaching and learning designs, strength-based pedagogical approaches, and culturally empowering instructional strategies. Fellows actively engage in professional development, scholarly, and program evaluation activities. They also receive faculty and peer mentorship throughout their enrollment in the program. Of particular interest to the Fellowship are candidates with a background-or interest in developing expertise-in consultation, family and systems theory, personality and cognitive assessment, neuropsychology, program development and evaluation, substance use disorders, or psychodynamic theory, research, and practice. We are seeking applicants with interest in addressing disparities in these domains and/or whose work has focused on behavioral health equity for unserved groups and underserved communities. Fellows may teach relevant courses as well as other generalist foundational courses in the Clinical Psychology Department.

Qualifications: Candidates must possess a Psy.D. or Ph.D. in Clinical or Counseling Psychology from an APA-accredited institution, completed an APA-accredited internship, have earned their degrees within the past three years (through August 2022), have teaching and clinical experience, and be licensed or license-eligible in Massachusetts. A demonstrated record of relevant scholarly work is preferred, including community service and engagement, organizational leadership, and innovative and entrepreneurial activities. Successful candidates will also have a demonstrated commitment to promoting diversity, inclusion, and multicultural competence in an educational and work environment and must be willing to contribute to the College's strategic plan of inclusion. The Department welcomes applications from individuals who may have had nontraditional career paths, who may have taken time off for family reasons, or who have achieved excellence in careers outside of academia. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination required.


Our benefits package includes generous health, vision and dental insurance, eligibility for both College funded 401(a) retirement plan and College sponsored 403(b) plan, company paid life and long term disability insurance, flexible spending accounts, generous PTO, and professional development opportunities.

William James College is not-for-profit organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Employment at William James College may qualify towards The Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program.
