Clinical Assistant Professor of Marriage & Family Therapy

Chapman University
Posting Date

Chapman University’s graduate program in Marriage and Family Therapy seeks applications for a non-tenure track Clinical Assistant Professor beginning in Fall 2021. The MFT program is fully accredited by COAMFTE.

The faculty member will teach graduate courses in the COAMFTE accredited MFT program that prepares students for licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist. The faculty member will also assist the university and graduate program by contributing to program re-accreditation, coordinating and supervising clinical training of students, and engaging in scholarly research and activities. The faculty member will be expected to teach a range of theoretical and clinical courses each semester. Because the position is non-tenure track, the faculty member will have a reduced research expectation in exchange for greater emphasis on teaching and university/ professional services.


Applicants must have an earned doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy, Human Development, Family Studies, or closely related field from a COAMFTE accredited program; prior university teaching experience; be actively involved in direct clinical service treating individuals, couples, children/adolescents and families, demonstrate a strong commitment to diversity issues and have prior experience in leadership.

Applicants must also have obtained an AAMFT Approved Supervisor Designation or be an AAMFT Approved Supervisor Candidate working towards achieving this designation. Salary will be commensurate with experience.
