The Ph.D./CES program’s first cohort started in Fall, 2016 and is designed to meet current CACREP standards with special emphases on social justice and multicultural supervision and training. In addition, it is the first of a kind in offering a cognate in Creative Arts Counselor Education & Supervision which will connect to our CMHC master’s degree program with Creative Arts specializations. AUS faculty engage in teaching, research and service; the successful applicant will teach doctoral courses, and supervise doctoral students in teaching, supervision, and clinical practica and internships. In addition, this position will support doctoral student dissertation work. This position is full-time (100% FTE), with a 12-month service period, including 3 months of professional leave. This position is within the bargaining unit represented by SEIU 925. Start date can be either January 1, 2018 or July 1, 2018.
Successful applicants will possess a Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision (preferred) or equivalent doctoral degree in a related field with proven history of active teaching experience in master’s or doctoral CACREP accredited counseling programs. In addition, an active history in the counseling profession (e.g., counselor licensure, national counselor credential, active member of ACA and/or its divisions/branches), including strong training and experience with multicultural competency in counseling is required. A strong research and/or publishing history in addition to experience with grants is preferred. As this is a new program still building its faculty, the ability to teach across several of the doctoral content areas is necessary. This includes Advanced Counseling Theories, Advanced Group Counseling, Supervision, Counselor Education, Research, Social Justice and Advocacy, Trauma and Crisis Intervention. We welcome candidates who also have additional professional credentials in one of the creative arts areas. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply. The ideal candidate will complement and build on existing strengths within the school, and will be eager to interact with students and faculty from the broader community at AUS.
