Assistant Professor in Counseling Psychology (Tenure-Track)
Location: Chestertown, MD
The Department of Psychology at Washington College invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Counseling Psychology to begin in August 2020. Candidates must have a doctorate in Counseling Psychology or a related discipline by the start date. Preference will be given to individuals able to teach Theories and Processes of Counseling, Psychopathology, General Psychology, and an upper-level course within one’s area of expertise. The ability to contribute to other related course offerings such as Personality, Multicultural Psychology, and Learning/Applied Behavior Analysis is highly desirable. All Washington College departments contribute to the college’s First Year Seminar Program, so the ability to teach a first year writing course based on a topic of your interest is also desirable. The normal teaching load is three courses per semester.
We particularly value candidates who demonstrate a passion for undergraduate education in a liberal arts setting and a desire for engaging students within and outside the classroom. Although the specific area of research interest within counseling psychology is open, the successful candidate will be expected to develop an independent program of research that involves undergraduate students. This position comes with an office and a dedicated lab/meeting space within the Psychology Department.
Washington College, founded in 1782, is a liberal arts institution located on the rural Eastern Shore of Maryland. We have about 1,450 students from 35 states and 40 nations and a 12:1 ratio of students to educators. Psychology is one of the three largest majors at Washington College and the majority of our majors choose to complete our Clinical-Counseling concentration within the major.
Please submit these items through the college’s online portal (available at https://www.washcoll.edu/offices/human-resources/employment.php): CV, statement of teaching and research goals, evidence of teaching effectiveness, and a cover letter identifying area(s) of expertise and courses you are prepared to teach. Three letters of reference should be sent directly to CounselingPsychologyPosition@washcoll.edu. Priority will be given to those who apply before September 30th, 2019, but applications received after this date will continue to be considered until the position is filled.
