Teaching Faculty Fellowship
"Be the change you wish to see in the world."
The Teaching Faculty Fellowship at William James College aims to recruit, train, and mentor new faculty who have completed their graduate degrees in clinical or counseling psychology. The primary goal of the Fellowship is to develop a critical mass of exceptionally talented and well-trained faculty members who represent backgrounds that are historically underrepresented in academic settings. The Fellowship is designed to prepare emerging faculty to utilize their skills, experiences, and expertise to engage in paradigm shifting inclusive teaching, advising, and research practices, as well as in administrative and leadership positions in academia.
Who Can Apply for the Fellowship?
Recent graduates whose doctoral degrees were conferred in the past three years (including those who will complete their graduate studies by August 2024).
- Individuals who identify with groups that are not considered majority identities or that have historically been less visible in academia (e.g., LGBTQIA+, individuals with disabilities, ethnic and racial minorities, military and veteran groups, religious/linguistic minorities, etc.).
- Candidates with a strong interest in promoting diversity, equity and inclusion, and a demonstrated commitment to serving underserved communities.
Priority will be given to applicants with a background—or interest in developing expertise—in consultation, family and systems theory, personality and cognitive assessment, neuropsychology, program development and evaluation, substance use disorders, or psychodynamic theory, research, and practice.
Application submission is currently closed. Applications for the 2024-2025 academic year will open in the Spring of 2024.
