The Department of Educational Studies in the College of Education at Purdue University is currently accepting applications for a tenure-track Associate or Full Professor position in its CACREP-accredited School Counseling program, beginning fall, 2017. Responsibilities include scholarly productivity as evidenced by publications in quality peer-refereed journals and the pursuit of extramural funding for research, teaching core counseling courses, supervision, and engagement with the community and the profession.

The Purdue School Counseling program received the NBCC Professional Identity Award in 2011 and the NCACES Outstanding Innovative Counselor Education Program Award in 2007. This dynamic program is selective in admissions and has small, full-time cohorts.

They should demonstrate excellence in scholarly productivity, present a record of extramural funding, and expertise in teaching.
