The Department of Counseling & Human Development invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor Counseling Psychology position beginning Fall semester 2017.

The successful candidate will be expected to show evidence of and continue our commitment to training students within a diverse, metropolitan framework. There are possibilities for research within the clinics and with various organizations in the community.
The department is committed to preparing scholars and professionals to work with diverse populations to address equity gaps and to build a socially just and democratic society. The department has established relationships with educational and community organizations, school districts, and health-related settings.
