Job Description
Eastern Michigan Universitys Department of Leadership and Counseling in the College of Education is inviting applications for two tenure-track Assistant Professor positions in Counseling. The department offers CACREP-accredited masters degree programs in clinical mental health counseling, college counseling and student affairs, and school counseling. These programs are committed to developing professional counselors who actively promote the well-being of individuals, institutions, and communities through the application of knowledge and skills enhancing the diversity, dignity, and development of the clients and communities they serve. We operate an in-house Counseling Training Clinic that is open to the community as well as a School-Based Counseling Training Clinic that serves several schools in the local community.

Our mission as a Counseling Program is to prepare graduates to work as professional counselors in clinical mental health, higher education, and K-12 school settings, using multiple modalities with diverse clients presenting with a range of concerns including addressing mental and emotional disorders. We seek to foster helping professionals who intentionally create inclusive spaces of responsiveness, respect, and appreciation for all forms of diversity, developing cultural proficiency in the service of promoting mental health and wellness to benefit local and global communities.

Eastern Michigan University was founded in 1849 as the first Normal School outside New England and is located in Ypsilanti, Michigan, adjacent to Ann Arbor and 45 minutes from downtown Detroit.


Teach and advise graduate students in CACREP-accredited school, clinical mental health, and college counseling/student affairs programs. Engage in scholarship and professional, community, and university service activities. These tenure-track positions require in-person engagement in teaching, service, and professional activities on campus.


At a minimum, candidates must have earned a doctorate degree by August 2023 in Counseling/ Counselor Education, preferably from a CACREP-accredited program or have experience teaching as a full time faculty member in a CACREP program. We are looking for clinicians who value practice, teaching, and research simultaneously, with experience teaching across the CACREP core areas, and a demonstrated commitment to social justice, equity, and inclusion, and preparing counselors from marginalized populations. Candidates should have an established research agenda. In addition, candidates must identify with the counseling profession, as evidenced by professional memberships and leadership activities and must be eligible for licensure as a professional counselor in Michigan.

Additional Qualifications:

Additional desired qualifications include significant experience in counseling practice and supervision, a multiculturally competent trauma-informed approach, desire for innovation, and a sense of humor. Strong experience and interest with college counseling, administering an on-campus community counseling training clinic, expertise counseling with children and adolescents, neurodiversity, working with internships, and/or community programming would be welcomed.

A competitive salary will be based on qualifications and prior experiences with a tenure-track appointment at the assistant professor rank. Eastern Michigan University will consider up to two years of credit for service at another institution. This is an eight-month appointment with summer employment contingent on departmental need. The starting date should be no later than August 22, 2023.
