Assistant Professor Tenure Track
Department of Counseling, Applied Developmental, and Educational Psychology
The Counseling, Developmental, and Educational Psychology Department in the Lynch School of Education and Human Development at Boston College invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Counseling Psychology at the Assistant Professor level to begin August 2023. The ideal candidate will contribute to our mission of training in the scientist-practitioner model. Our program emphasizes a developmental contextual perspective, the psychological impact of social oppression and marginalization, and a firm commitment to social justice and community-based practice. All areas of research will be considered; however, we are particularly interested in those whose research addresses topics related to health disparities and/or the mental health consequences of oppressive conditions such as poverty and discrimination.
The successful candidate will primarily be involved in teaching students in our Counseling Psychology Ph.D. Program and Masters in Mental Health Counseling Program. The candidate will also be expected to teach courses at the undergraduate level as needed, mentor and supervise undergraduate and graduate students in research, participate in departmental, school and/or college service, seek intramural and extramural funding to support their research.
The successful candidate will have earned a PhD in Counseling or Clinical Psychology or other related field by August 31, 2023. They should be licensed or license eligible in Massachusetts. There should be evidence of an established record of active research relevant to counseling or clinical psychology, potential for extramural funding, an ability to teach successfully at the undergraduate and graduate level, an ability to cooperate with others for the good of the department and institution, and a commitment to working effectively within a diverse community.
Review of applications will begin September 15, 2022 and continue until the position is filled.
