Stetson University seeks an individual with expertise in counselor education for a nine-month, full-time, tenure-track appointment at the Assistant Professor level beginning January 2022. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in Counselor Education from a CACREP-accredited institution or have a related doctoral degree and have been employed as a full-time faculty member in a counselor education program for a minimum of one full academic year before July 1, 2013. Experience in teaching and mentoring Master’s level students is required, and preference will also be given to candidates with experience supervising practicum and internship students. Individuals should demonstrate the potential for excellence in teaching, the ability to work collaboratively with others, and a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Qualified applicants should have an interest in contributing to the department’s commitment to increasing the quality of education for students from underrepresented groups. Applicants must be licensed or license eligible in mental health counseling (LMHC) and/or marriage and family therapy (LMFT) in the state of Florida.

Stetson’s Counselor Education department focuses on education of the whole student through a strong foundation in the core CACREP content areas, experiential learning, and professional mentoring relationships with faculty. Thus, this tenure-track position has a strong focus on teaching and mentoring graduate students from a broad cross section of diverse backgrounds. Responsibilities center on teaching a variety of courses within our two CACREP-accredited programs in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling and Clinical Mental Health Counseling. The teaching load includes three (3) courses per fall and spring semesters with additional teaching opportunities contracted separately in the summer semester. Candidates should demonstrate a passion for the highest quality of teaching, combined with the ability to produce rigorous peer-reviewed academic scholarship. Scholarly activity leading to publication in peer reviewed journals and service to the Department, the College of Arts and Sciences, the University, and the profession are required.

The graduate Department of Counselor Education (www.stetson.edu/counselor) consists of six full-time faculty members and is dedicated to preparing counselor education students to be ethically informed; developing a keen awareness of their personal strengths and resiliency; further developing an appreciation for cultural diversity, critical thinking, and creative expression; and having a deep commitment to the counseling profession and community as a whole. Our commitment is to produce stellar graduates whose work centers on helping individuals, couples, and families in a diverse world. Our faculty are engaged in initiatives that include externally funded grant activities (HRSA and The John Templeton Foundation), leadership within the American Counseling Association, collaborative work across departments within the University to enhance the health and wellbeing of our community, and local and international work (i.e., Bhutan and Kenya) centered on the development of culturally sensitive programs and interventions for vulnerable populations. These initiatives create unique and exciting opportunities for our students and for the individual who will be joining our team.
