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.

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.

TheDepartment of Psychologyhouses 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.
