Overview and Responsibilities

Saint Mary’s University is seeking to hire a full-time core faculty member with skills in quantitative study design and statistical methods for the Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) in Counseling Psychology Program. The institution is seeking an individual who is eager to contribute to Saint Mary’s Lasallian Catholic mission of awakening, nurturing, and empowering learners to ethical lives of service and leadership. We invite faculty to help transform lives through education, inspired by the Catholic Intellectual Tradition’s quest to understand the human experience through faith and reason, and its embrace of all who are dedicated to learning from one another through authentic conversations in search of the truth. We are especially interested in and give preference to candidates who demonstrate a vision to create and nurture initiatives that will advance our mission within the scope of their duties and who will foster a culture of dialogue that, with respect for all people, supports the search for meaning and purpose in pursuit of excellence.

The APA-accredited PsyD in Counseling Psychology program is a thriving and successful program with a warm, collegial, and supportive faculty team, successful student outcomes, and training aims around social justice, ethical practice, and cultural humility. This full-time position involves teaching doctoral-level courses to cohorts of approximately 14-16 students. Courses may include psychometrics, quantitative research design and statistical methods, dissertation proposal development, psychophysiology, and others. The standard teaching load is defined as 18-20 equivalent credit hours per 12-month contract year, with release time to conduct independent clinical practice or research. Core faculty are responsible for maintaining the academic integrity of the program and play an essential role in curriculum development and review, supervision and evaluation of students, assessment of program outcomes, and development of program objectives. In addition to teaching, core faculty participate in the development and assessment of qualifying examinations, supervise clinical dissertation research, and advise and mentor doctoral students. Candidates are being considered across all ranks (Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor) and the current core faculty is available and eager to mentor early career professionals who demonstrate potential to achieve excellence in teaching.
