The Position

The successful candidates will be expected to teach core and specialization courses in the Marital and Family Therapy Program, as well as supervise students through the practicum courses. Faculty members are also expected to demonstrate scholarly productivity, as reflected in publications and professional presentations as part of the Retention, Tenure, and Promotion (RTP) process. Program related responsibilities include but are not limited to student advising/mentoring, admissions, curriculum assessment and development, participation in program governance as a core faculty member, and university service. Candidates must demonstrate a commitment to promoting diversity and social justice in their role as a faculty member. Applications are due by December 15, 2022 with an anticipated start date in August of 2023.


The responsibilities include teaching core and clinical courses and providing supervision, participating in program governance as a core faculty member, advancing scholarly work, and engaging in service to the profession and university.
