The Department of Counseling and Educational Studies at the Johns Hopkins School of Education (SOE) invites applications for two open-rank positions (assistant/associate/full) for clinical and/or research professorships in the Counseling Program beginning August 1, 2021. SOE offers two counseling MS tracks, School Counseling and Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and a graduate certificate program. The current positions are designated for clinical mental health counseling or school counseling. The School of Education ranks #15 among the nation's finest graduate education programs according to the latest ranking from U.S. News and World Report, and Johns Hopkins is ranked #11 in the global ranking of all universities. As described by the School of Education's vision here, SOE is committed to addressing growing societal and educational inequity, and diverse candidates are encouraged to apply.
The Counseling program seeks candidates with deep knowledge, teaching experience, and ongoing engagement in research and scholarship. Preferred teaching areas are career, addictions, counseling youth and adolescents, or school counseling. Successful candidates will be expected to teach 4-6 courses per year across traditional and distance learning formats. They will also supervise and advise students, provide leadership, and participate in professional service at the program, school, university, state, regional, and national levels. Opportunities exist for the selected candidate to serve on doctoral committees.
SOE has two faculty promotion tracks, research and clinical. Research faculty are expected to teach four courses per year and engage in scholarly productivity at the highest level. Clinical faculty are expected to teach six courses per year and engage in scholarship that is oriented toward towards the development of usable knowledge. These positions are open to faculty interested in either track, and candidates are encouraged to indicate their preference in their cover letter.
Requirements for the position: Successful candidates will
have earned a doctorate in Counselor Education and Supervision from a Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) accredited program;
