The candidate will hold a PhD in Counseling Psychology, PhD or ThD in Pastoral Counseling, or an appropriate, equivalent degree. An additional seminary degree (e.g., MDiv, MTS, MAR) is highly desirable. Candidates should have a research record and agenda that moves across the fields of theological, religious, and psychological studies, and includes psychotherapy research. They should be licensed or licensable as a psychologist by the state of Massachusetts, and ideal candidates will be master clinicians and experienced psychotherapy supervisors, as well as research scholars.

Responsibilities and opportunities include teaching three courses per year in masters and doctoral programs of the School of Theology, often in collaborative programs with other Boston University schools; these are courses focused on the intersections of theology, religion, and psychology. In addition, the person will participate in psychotherapy training and research of the Albert and Jessie Danielsen Institute, which operates an out-patient mental health clinic, supervises a clinical training program, and supports the teaching program of the School of Theology and other units of Boston University. Boston University expects excellence in teaching and research and is dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse faculty and staff committed to engaged scholarship in a multicultural environment. Salary will be commensurate with experience.
