Description of Position (UPDATED):
The individual selected for this position will be responsible for teaching either two or three courses (depending upon whether the teaching load includes doctoral courses) in the Counseling Program for the fall and spring semesters, as well as summer teaching as needed.  We are seeking an individual well versed in research to teach courses related to research methods and statistical analysis, as well as courses across the CACREP core.  Courses in the SHSU Counseling Program are offered at three locations, Huntsville, The Woodlands, and North Houston, so the individual selected for the position will need to demonstrate a willingness to teach at each of these sites.  We also offer counseling courses online, so the qualified individual needs to demonstrate proficiency with technology related to online course delivery.  The position requires that the individual be involved in: student advising, supervising graduate students, engaging in scholarship and external funding activities, providing leadership in the program, serving on dissertation committees, and serving at the community, state, regional, university, and/or national levels.

Sam Houston State University is located in historic Huntsville, TX and is nested within the Sam Houston National Forrest.  It lies along I-45 about one hour north of Houston at the boundary between the Piney Woods region of East Texas and the Prairies and Lakes region of Central Texas. The university has an enrollment of approximately 16,400 and a faculty of 650.  The Counseling Program at SHSU offers courses at three locations: our main campus in Huntsville, as well as our new facility in The Woodlands, TX (approximately 30 minutes south from Huntsville towards Houston,) and in North Houston.

Candidates must be willing to teach at both on and off campus locations.

The salary for the position begins at $50,000 and is commensurate with experience.
