The Department of Psychology in the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences at Baruch College, a senior college of the City University of New York (CUNY), invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor Level in Counseling Psychology to begin August 2023. This is one of several hires the Department is conducting this year to expand research and teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels. The successful candidate will primarily be involved in teaching students in our Masters in Mental Health Counseling (MMHC) program, including courses in career counseling, research methods, and foundations of counseling, as well as providing internship supervision. Our MMHC program differentiates itself by following a cohort model whereby students are grouped in smaller cohorts and complete the same sequence of study together during their two years. The candidate will establish and maintain an active research program, publish in peer-reviewed journals, and be open to guiding students in thesis research. They should also be motivated to seek intramural and extramural funding to support their research and be open to the possibility of becoming doctoral faculty in the Health Psychology and Clinical Sciences training area at the Graduate Center of CUNY, which would involve teaching PhD-level courses and supervision of graduate students. The candidate will also be expected to teach courses at the undergraduate level as needed and mentor and supervise undergraduate students in research, as well as participate in departmental, school and/or college service. All areas of research will be considered, but we are particularly interested in those whose research addresses topics related to diversity, equity, and inclusion in mental health counseling. The Department of Psychology houses undergraduate programs in General Psychology (BA) and Industrial-Organizational (IO) psychology (BBA), and terminal master’s programs in Mental Health Counseling (MMHC) and IO psychology (MSIO). Several members of the faculty are also members of the doctoral faculty of training areas (including HPCS) at CUNY’s Graduate Center, the Ph.D. degree conferring institution within CUNY. Baruch College is ideally situated in the historic Gramercy Park district of Manhattan, offering easy access to New York’s world-class cultural attractions. QUALIFICATIONS The successful candidate will have earned a Ph.D. or PsyD in Clinical or Counseling Psychology or a related field and be licensed or license-eligible in New York State by August 25, 2023. We require evidence of the ability to teach successfully, engage in high-quality scholarship, and cooperate with others for the good of the institution, as well as work effectively with a diverse community. Candidates must also demonstrate a commitment to the mental health counseling profession and psychology through relevant professional membership (e.g., APA, ACA, NYMHCA) or related regional associations in the field of counseling, and/or psychology HOW TO APPLY: See COMPENSATION CUNY offers faculty a competitive compensation and benefits package covering health insurance, pension and retirement benefits, paid parental leave, and savings programs. We also provide mentoring and support for research, scholarship, and publication as part of our commitment to ongoing faculty professional development. CLOSING DATE Review of resumes begins on October 4, 2022. To ensure consideration, please apply by October 3, 2022.
