In addition to teaching upper-level courses in their area of expertise, the candidate may teach foundational graduate counseling courses in topics such as professional ethics, counseling theory, and psychopathology. The candidate will contribute to additional departmental service and initiatives, through advising graduate students, holding membership in relevant professional organizations, engaging in professional practice and development, participating in program recruitment and interviews, and contributing to activities that support program accreditation. The ideal candidate will demonstrate high-quality inclusive teaching and possess excellent interpersonal and communication skills and a commitment to collaboration.

Candidates who expect to complete their degree by August 2023 will be reviewed. We encourage members of historically under-represented groups to apply.

To apply, candidates should submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae or resume, statement of teaching philosophy, statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and email addresses for three references.
