Position Summary
The University of Oregon is launching a new on-line Master’s degree program and we are seeking an individual who has extensive knowledge of the requirements for BCBA licensure, experience developing course content for graduate level courses in an ABA program, and commitment to addressing disparities in education and health settings. Initial work assignments will focus on developing content for the new Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Master’s Degree program and instruction of courses. As the program grows we anticipate the need for academic program coordination (i.e., serving as verified course sequence coordinator), advising and mentoring graduate students, and intellectual contributions to the ongoing development of the program. This position has the potential to guide and shape the next generation of Board Certified Behavior Analysts in the Pacific Northwest as there is a high need with few training programs.

This position will provide instruction and practicum supervision to graduate-level students in the Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Master’s Degree program and will serve as the verified course sequence coordinator. The primary course content areas are experimental behavior analysis, philosophy of behavior analysis, basic principles of behavior analysis and their application, behavioral assessment and intervention, and ethics. Additionally, this position will be responsible for advising, mentoring, and chairing student master’s applied research project committees. Other duties include departmental, college, and university service, collaborative curriculum and academic program leadership, and engaging in key state and national educational leadership professional societies to further the mission of our leadership preparation programs.
This position is a nine–month Career Non-Tenure-Track Faculty (CNTTF) position in the Lecturer classification series. The position’s responsibilities are guided by the COE NTTF Professional Responsibilities Policy, United Academics’ Collective Bargaining Agreement, and the COE’s NTTF Policy for Promotion and Review.
