The Department of Educational Psychology seeks individuals to contribute teaching, clinical supervision, research, and service in the area of Counselor Education. This is a full-time one-year (possibly renewable) non-tenure-track Assistant Professor position beginning August 29, 2021. We are motivated to identify and recruit an individual that can contribute to a robust masters-level training program in school and clinical mental health counseling. While a record of research and scholarship is essential, priority is given to individuals who can contribute to the masters-level teaching and program development, including advising students and supervising practicum and internship activities. Specific areas of specialization are open, however, we encourage those with interests in clinical mental health counseling to apply. Additional interests in school counseling are also valued, but not essential.
