The Clinical Psychology Program at Teachers College, Columbia University, is seeking to hire a full-time Lecturer, beginning September 1, 2020.
Job Summary/Basic Function:
The Clinical Psychology Program at Teachers College, Columbia University, is seeking to hire a full-time Lecturer, beginning September 1, 2020, whose duties will include a) coordinating the Spirituality Mind Body Concentration (SMB-MA) in the Masters of Psychology and Education Program and administering an SMBI-related grant; b) teaching two courses within the SMB-MA concentration; and c) teaching two courses for the general MA program (outside this concentration).
SMBI houses grant-funded research that integrates spirituality into wellness, psychotherapy, K-12 education, and college campus resilience; among other activities, it hosts national summits focusing on the integration of mental health services and spiritual initiatives. As an MA-level concentration, the SMB-MA offers a blended-format program of study that includes several sessions per year of intensive learning, including in-person classes and on-line sessions. Designed to be accessible to a global community, the SMB Concentration generally attracts students from an extremely broad range of cultural, religious, and secular orientations. The Program Coordinator is responsible for the academic delivery of the SMB Concentration, including supervising a team of doctoral level graduate student advisors.
The overall MA program in Clinical Psychology is designed to provide students with a foundational knowledge of psychopathology, resilience and wellness, treatment theories, and research methods. The program features several concentrations in topic areas relevant to clinical psychology, e.g., Research Methods; Spirituality Mind Body (see above); Psychotherapy and Psychoanalytic Perspectives; and Global Mental Health and Trauma. The MA program is interested in increasing its expertise on issues related to substance abuse, as well as recovery and wellness.
The appropriate candidate for this position will have experience in spiritually-integrated psychology, undergraduate and/or graduate teaching, and academic/organizational administration. The position requires a doctorate degree in psychology (or closely related academic field) and experience (preferably five or more years) of post-doctoral work in administration, teaching, and advisement.
