The Department of Psychology at Suffolk University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Mental Health Counseling for July 1, 2018 (pending final budgetary approval). The department includes a 350-person undergraduate major, an APA-accredited Ph.D. program in Clinical Psychology, and a Master’s of Mental Health Counseling program. We are committed to promoting diversity in the field and inclusive teaching practices; candidates who would increase the diversity of the faculty are particularly encouraged to apply.
Area of scholarship is open, although we are particularly interested in candidates with a developing or established research program involving diverse and/or underserved populations. Candidates must hold a doctoral degree in counselor education, counseling psychology, or clinical psychology at the time of appointment, with preference for candidates with a doctoral degree in counselor education from a CACREP-accredited program. Candidates must also be licensed or license-eligible in the state of Massachusetts.
Teaching responsibilities include master’s-level instruction in practicum and internship classes, research methods, and counseling diverse populations, though the candidate may also be asked to teach undergraduate and doctoral-level courses. In addition to demonstrating excellence in teaching and research, the successful candidate is expected to engage in advising/mentoring of undergraduate and master’s level students, serve on committees, and engage in other forms of service within the Department, College, and University.
