Princeton University is looking to hire a certified clinician to promote “healthy masculinity.”

The university created the new job position — “Interpersonal Violence Clinician and Men’s Engagement Manager” — to work with survivors of dating violence and stalking, as well as sexual harassment and assault, according to the College Fix. The manager will also seek to discourage these practices on campus by promoting a culture of safety and healthy interaction.

In order to qualify for the job, the candidate must have a masters or doctorate degree in women’s studies or social work.

Also included in the job description is a duty to create programs that will challenge gender stereotypes and expand Princeton’s Men’s Allied Voices for a Respectful and Inclusive Community program which seeks to end violence and “toxic masculinity,” per its Facebook page. It’s unclear what the group means exactly by this term.

The manager will be tasked with starting initiatives that identify “high-risk campus-based populations for primary prevention of interpersonal violence, including sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, and stalking.”

The position encourages the implementation of a mandatory “accountability program” for those who’ve been accused of sexual harassment or assault, regardless of whether the claims are proven true or false.

The university expects that the manager will be a role model for “men-identified students,” and demands that the the candidate “engage men as agents of positive change,” according to Princeton’s communications office.

The university’s communications office did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
