Lecturer of Applied Behavior Analysis and School Psychology (Full-Time)

Apply now Job no: 496077
Full time/Part time: Full-time
Location: South Orange
Categories: Faculty

The Department of Professional Psychology and Family Therapy within the College of Human Development, Culture, and Media at Seton Hall University invites applications for a full-time Lecturer, with essential teaching assignments in the graduate Applied Behavior Analysis and School Psychology programs. Lecturer appointments have a primary responsibility of teaching and are retained on a one-to-three-year contract, renewable upon recommendation by the Department and approval by the Dean and Provost. Lecturer positions are not on the tenure track, but may be appointed at or promoted to the rank of Senior Lecturer, commensurate with demonstrated experience.

Within the Department of Professional Psychology and Family Therapy, all programs have a strong commitment to preparing competent, socially conscious, reflective professionals. This includes training future behavior analysts and school psychologists who are scientist-practitioners committed to adhering to evidence-based, ethical, and equitable practice. All our graduates are prepared to meet the needs of clients within an ever-changing, multicultural, and complex urban/suburban landscape. Both the Master’s degree programs in behavior analysis and school psychology are aligned with best practice and lead graduates towards certification in their respective disciplines. The behavior analysis program is a Verified Course Sequence of the Association for Behavior Analysis International.

Duties and Responsibilities:

Essential responsibilities include teaching a 24-credit load during each academic year (typically, four courses per semester), and highly engaged service to the Department and College. Teaching assignments will draw upon the candidate’s disciplinary background and include graduate-level offerings in ABA and School Psychology. Courses for the current position are primarily taught within an on-campus format, in the evenings. There may be exceptions to these course formats with some courses taught in an online format or outside of weekday evenings.

Although there are no research expectations for this position, Lecturers are expected to work on projects and participate in committees that serve the workings of the Department and College. The Lecturer appointment requires service to program advancement, recruitment, accreditation, and structure, in collaboration with the Program Director, Department Chair, and Department colleagues. The successful candidate will also collaborate closely within the Department and College as part of an array of high-impact activities, such as collaborative research with students, Master’s thesis mentoring, student advisement, conference attendance, participation in faculty training, grant opportunities, and the like. The opportunity for additional teaching assignments during the Winter and/or Summer terms may be available, contingent upon student enrollment and available funding. Further, we seek a well-rounded individual who is motivated to work collaboratively, collegially, and respectfully to promote the mission of the Department, College, and University.

About the College of Human Development, Culture, and Media and Seton Hall University:

Launched in Summer 2023, Seton Hall’s College of Human Development, Culture, and Media (CHDCM) embodies the University’s commitment to pedagogical innovation, intellectual ferment, and community engagement. Uniting scholars and students from four dynamic departments—Communication, Media, and the Arts; Education Leadership, Management, and Policy; Educational Studies; and Professional Psychology and Family Therapy—the College is the new home of cutting-edge, transdisciplinary inquiry into the stickiest problems of our time.

The faculty, staff, and students of the College seek to improve the human condition by collaborating across distinct fields that uniquely complement one another, thereby preparing the next generation of dynamic leaders poised to tackle contemporary social challenges and opportunities. Expression underpins all facets of the integrated College’s portfolio — media as a form of education and artistic expression; teaching and learning as modes of creative expression; expression and expressibility as critical to counseling and therapeutic treatment; and self-expression as a vehicle of social agency. With enrollment at approximately 1,550 total students, both graduate and undergraduate, CHDCM is the second largest college at Seton Hall University, with approximately 70 full time faculty and 125 adjunct faculty.

Seton Hall is located in South Orange, New Jersey, just 14 miles from New York City. The University is the oldest Catholic diocesan institution of higher education in the United States, and the Carnegie Foundation classifies it as a doctoral university. It is home to approximately 6,300 undergraduate and 4,700 graduate students from every state in the United States and from more than 70 countries around the world. Nearly 40 percent of our undergraduates identify themselves as students of color, and this figure is increasing with each new graduating class. The University also prides itself on supporting first generation students, and 98% of our students receive scholarships and grants to fund their education. Given this exciting and rich, diverse community, Seton Hall pursues academic excellence and ethical development in a collaborative environment and prepares its students to be servant leaders in their professional and community lives, capable of engaging effectively with diverse populations.

In keeping with Seton Hall’s emphasis upon those historically excluded from higher education, the College of Human Development, Culture, and Media embraces the value and power of diversity—and the critical importance of creating inclusive, welcoming forms of community. Reflecting the University’s mission, the College is committed to advancing social justice, championing equity and inclusivity, and working toward an anti-racist future, free of violence and oppression of all kinds. We are especially called by our mission to serve underserved communities in and around the Archdiocese of Newark, though we also recognize the need to attend to the intersection of the local, national, and global in questions of power and access. We therefore commit to addressing systemic inequality and injustice of all kinds, and we look forward to welcoming new colleagues similarly aligned to this mission.
