The Graduate School of Education (GSE) at the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York, invites applications for two positions at the full-time, tenure-track, Assistant Professor or full-time, non-tenure, Clinical Assistant Professor rank in the Rehabilitation Counseling Program, within the Department of Counseling, School, and Educational Psychology (CSEP). As part of a larger initiative to address issues of race and inequity in schools and society, the GSE is actively hiring faculty across multiple disciplines with a targeted focus. The GSE is committed to fostering equity, diversity, justice, and inclusion principles through an engaged community of scholars who prioritize research, teaching, and community action that address educational, economic, social, and health disparities. Our CSEP Department includes a distinguished faculty of researchers, professional teachers, and thought leaders who strive for innovation in training and field practice to have enduring impact on the lives of individuals and communities. The Rehabilitation Counseling Program offers a practitioner-focused Master of Science degree accredited by The Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). We are seeking motivated, collaborative faculty, eager to engage with community members, and whose research, teaching, and service directly engage questions of practice related to how individuals with disabilities, particularly those from minoritized groups, achieve independence, inclusion, employment, and health. Priority status will be given to scholars who use a critical lens and demonstrate innovative approaches in transforming existing educational, work, social, and health systems to ensure the well-being of people from minoritized groups and individuals with disabilities. Ideal candidates are able to make clear connections between their research, teaching, and service, and the unique intersectional needs of people of color with disabilities. Fundamentally, we believe in equity of opportunity, social justice advocacy, and providing holistic, integrative supports. Our program emphasizes rehabilitation counselor skill development through innovation in clinical supervision and practical experiences in interdisciplinary, integrated-health settings. We have a particular interest in early-career faculty who have a record of research and/or practice in counselor supervision, culturally-responsive interventions, and working with interdisciplinary, community-based support services.
We are looking for new faculty who have aptitude in research, teaching, and counselor supervision, and who are eligible to serve as core faculty in a CACREP accredited rehabilitation counselor training program. There is potential for secondary affiliation in the Mental Health Counseling Program. Our program includes traditional campus classes and fully-online format options, so applicants should have interest and ability in providing high quality distance instruction.
Appointments are for a ten-month academic year beginning in the Fall 2022.
University at Buffalo is an affirmative action equal opportunity employer and, in keeping with our commitment, welcomes all to apply including veterans and individuals with disabilities.
