Primary responsibilities of this position will be to serve as a core faculty member in the MFT program and specifically to focus efforts on planning and teaching in the DMFT (Doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy) degree program while also maintaining an active research program. One-third of the position will be administrative as this person will work closely with the MFT Department Chair and the Director of Academic Affairs to oversee the DMFT program.
