William James College announces an opening for a full-time Core Faculty position in the Doctoral Clinical Psychology Department beginning August 2020. Rank is commensurate with experience.
William James College is committed to an active, intentional, and ongoing engagement with diversity—in people, in the curriculum, in the co-curriculum, and in the college’s intellectual, social, cultural, and geographical communities. William James College endorses a framework of inclusive excellence, which recognizes that institutional excellence comes from fully engaging with diversity in all aspects of institutional activities.
Responsibilities: Core faculty members are involved in teaching, advising, and research supervision. Additionally, there is the expectation of committee work and scholarly productivity. We are seeking applicants with interest, expertise, and/or experience in the areas of diversity and multiculturalism. A strong commitment to, and experience in, addressing mental health disparities is highly preferred. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to contribute to department-wide initiatives that focus on underserved communities. The successful candidate may teach relevant courses (e.g., Diversity and Cross-Cultural Psychology) as well as generalist foundational courses in the Clinical Psy.D. program.
Qualifications: Candidates must possess a PsyD or PhD in Clinical Psychology or Counseling Psychology, completed an APA-accredited internship, have teaching experience, preferably be licensed or license-eligible in Massachusetts, and maintain some involvement in clinical practice or consultation. A demonstrated record of scholarly work defined broadly (e.g., community engagement, educational leadership, innovation, investigation and research) is preferred. Successful candidates will also have a demonstrated commitment to promoting diversity, inclusion, and multicultural competence in an educational and work environment and must be willing to contribute to the College’s strategic plan of inclusion. The department welcomes applications from individuals who may have had nontraditional career paths, or who may have taken time off for family reasons, or who have achieved excellence in careers outside of academia.
Application Procedure: Review of applications will begin upon receipt. Interested candidates should submit:
- A detailed letter of intent responding to the stated qualifications.
- A curriculum vitae.
- A list of three professional references with complete contact information. (References will not be contacted without the candidate's prior permission.)
