Job Description

Baruch College

Assistant Professor - Counseling Psychology


Job Description:

The Department of Psychology in the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences at Baruch College, a senior college of the City University of New York (CUNY), invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Counseling Psychology at the Assistant Professor level to begin August 2022. The ideal candidate will conduct programmatic research related to counseling psychology and be licensed or license eligible in NY State (Licensed Mental Health Counselor [LMHC] preferred). Additionally, they should be actively involved or willing to become actively involved in organizations that move the profession forward (e.g., APA, ACA, NYMHCA). 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 and who have experience in counseling program accreditation.


The successful candidate will primarily be involved in teaching students in our Masters in Mental Health Counseling (MMHC) program, including courses in career development and foundations of counseling, as well as providing internship supervision. Our MMHC program differentiates itself by following a cohort model whereby students are grouped in smaller cohorts and complete the same sequence of study together during their two years. The candidate will also be expected to teach courses at the undergraduate level as needed, mentor and supervise undergraduate students in research, participate in departmental, school and/or college service, seek intramural and extramural funding to support their research, and be open to the possibility of becoming doctoral faculty at the Graduate Center of CUNY, which would involve teaching PhD-level courses and the supervision of graduate students.


In addition to the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, Baruch College is also home to the Zicklin School of Business and the Marxe School of Public and International Affairs and is one of the most selective senior campuses of the CUNY system. Ideally situated in the historic Gramercy Park area of Manhattan, Baruch College offers a vibrant, urban setting, a highly diverse and dedicated student body, and access to New York's world-class cultural attractions.


Compensation and Benefits:

CUNY offers faculty a competitive compensation and benefits package covering health insurance, pension and retirement benefits, paid parental leave, and savings programs.  We also provide mentoring and support for research, scholarship, and publication as part of our commitment to ongoing faculty professional development.



The successful candidate will have earned a PhD or PsyD in Counseling Psychology or related field by August 25, 2022. They should be licensed or license eligible in New York State. There should be evidence of an established record of active research relevant to mental health counseling, potential for extramural funding, an ability to teach successfully at the undergraduate and graduate level, an ability to cooperate with others for the good of the institution, and a commitment to working effectively within a diverse community.
