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.

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.
