Page for Academic Positions in Social Work that begin in 2017.

Let's do this! Try to stick to a few guidelines when posting to keep things consistent:

  • Post information about the position (or positions) including rank, source of information, and desired specialties.
  • Update when you know if a school has announced or cancelled a search, done preliminary interviews, invited candidates out for job talks, or made offers, even if this information is anecdotal (but please note that it's anecdotal if it is)!
  • Add date of posting to information whenever possible.
  • Please Use "Heading 3" when adding names of schools to this page.

A couple of features of this page, based on additional posts from past years:

  • There are two general sections:
  • Discussion: Post other job search related information here. In the past, topics have included:
  • Tally of number of people checking this page 
  • Information about salaries offered relative to cost of living.
  • Information about the number of places people have applied, number of initial interviews received, number of campus visits/job talks, and number of offers.
  • Please feel free to add topics here!
  • List of Schools: Post information about positions, here: 

FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS ACADEMIC, PLEASE DATE YOUR POSTS!

How many people are updating or monitoring this page?Edit

ABD (Early): 3

ABD (On the market): 16

PhD: 10

Postdoctoral Fellow: 9

Assistant Professor: 7

Associate Professor:1 

Full Professor:

Master's Students/MSW:

Other:1 (adjunct assistant professor)

How many folks are on the market for a social work job without an MSW (having a master's in something else, getting or have a PhD in social work)? How has this experience been for you?Edit

I have a master's in another field.  So far I have gotten one CSWE interview offer.  I am only looking at research-intensive schools that are less likely to care about the fact that I can't teach practice courses, and I'm looking for jobs in a related field as well.

Same as the person above, though have a few more CSWE interview offers (although interestingly, not from the schools I had expected). It is definitely a challenge and frustrating at times (seeing the perfect listing that is looking for someone with exactly my research area or teaching passions, only to see MSW required), but I am hoping it will still work out in the end. As with what the other person, am also applying to jobs in the field more directly connected to my master's.

Which Universities are people familiar with that have either a focus on or a strong respect for QUALITATIVE research?Edit

  • I know that Rutgers has hired a few really strong qualitative researchers in the past couple of years
  • There has been a call for increased qualitative methodology by several big funders (including NIH), so I would say it is likely that a good qualitative researcher would be appreciated many places, even if they don't currently have a strong qualitative focus/respect
  • ASU has several strong qualitative researchers, and great respect for qualitative research (and 3 faculty positions posted!)

Have people been contacted by schools and asked to apply?Edit

  • I have been contacted by a couple schools and asked to apply. I am wondering how others have handeled this.  Some are schools that seem interesting that I just had not initially considered. Other schools are not so interesting to me, but I don't want to seem rude by not applying/responding. Also, it seems like it might be a bad sign if schools are not garnering enough interested applicants.  What are other peoples thoughts/experiences?
  • I have had two of these so far. I think that it's a professional courtesy. If you aren't bogged down by other interviews, take these as an opportunity to further refine your approach. I wouldn't say that it's a bad sign that they contacted you or that this reflects that they have few candidates. It means they see you as a particularly good fit--furthermore, that is often the purpose of the mailings and social media presence our universities undertake to market us. If things are getting too busy at CSWE, simply request a Skype interview before or after the conference. No harm. -10/22/16
  • I'm curious: do you know how these schools are finding you? (10/29/16)
    • Guessing through the CV booklet/candidates on the market list most schools send out

Salaries offered - helpful to list with school ranking (R1 or teaching)and cost of living:Edit

How are people handling having offers from schools before hearing back from other schools?Edit

  • I'm curious as to how, when, and what you say to a school you were hoping to hear from when faced with an offer and two-week decision timeline. My chair said there is no harm in an email, but it seems unlikely that we would possibly get a campus interview and offer in that turn around. Do we call? Do we indicate we have an offer? Any thoughts?  (12/3/16)
  • I think the email idea is a good one- it can't hurt to ask ppl's timelines and indicate your interest, particularly in the context of letting others know that you have an offer on the table. Ideally, this lights a fire under the behind of your  most-desired location. As an aside, it is my impression that this is very early to get an offer.  It's possible that you are very competitive and therefore schools are trying to scoop you.  If that's the case, this will likely not be your only offer but just your first of many offers (bravo!).  Don't get pressured into taking an offer your aren't really excited about!  
  • When I checked in with some of the schools I was still interested in about their timeline (as I had/have multiple campus visits scheduled), most responded with some info about their timeline as well as "please keep us updated if anything changes, such as you recieving an offer." My thoughts (coupled with speaking with some of my mentors) is that when (if?) you get an offer, you reach out to other schools you are interested in ASAP and let them know you have another offer and your timeline for responding. If you are a top pick on their list, some schools will absolutely bring you out in the next week (others are not able to for HR or scheduling reasons), and some will ask for you to try to extend your current offer's response time by a week or two to be able to come out and visit. As the above person said, you certainly don't have to accept your offer, but I do know many schools have already made or will be making offers before winter break, so some of it depends on how much you like the school from which you have the offer, versus schools you are waiting on. If you have a relationship with the search chair that already has involved phone calls (to schedule, or to get the room at CSWE, etc.), I would call. If not, an email is fine. Congrats on your offer and I hope you have as easy a time as possible figuring this out.

University of North Carolina at Chapel HillEdit

  • PLEASE STOP DELETING DIALOGUE
  • Assistant or Associate TT position, review of applications will commence by 10/15/2016, postition start date is 7/1/2017
  • Be careful about this school.  The political climate in NC is quite bad.  The state legislature and governor passed HB2.  UNC system leaders closed three centers on campus that were devoted to poverty, civic engagement and social change, and biodiversity.
  • There is also a bill in the legislature (SB 593) that would require professors in the state's public univerities to teach a 4-4 minimum course load.  I wonder if this is why this school seems to be moving quickly in their search this year.

They are looking to schedule job talks in October so the are indeed moving faster than other schools.

  • Does anyone know about the climate at this school?
  • They just got a new Dean, so I'm sure there will be a new climate.  They've had several big faculty leave within the past 3-5 years, and several other big names are retiring soon.  There's also a lot of racial tension in the university generally, as well as tensions around HB2. As a previous poster noted, the general policial climate in NC is quite bad, and that has an impact on NC State schools including UNC.
  • One of my friends was a student there.  She did not have a good experience.  Some of the faculty do not get along with each other, and others are nice and supportive of students but very stressed out, which makes for poor mentoring.  She said a couple of good people were denied tenure and promotion recently.  Expectations for publishing are increasing. She also said the new dean is kind of sexist.  

Job posting has been removed as of 11/2/16

University of TorontoEdit

  • Hiring multiple positions at University of Toronto. http://socialwork.utoronto.ca/about-us/job-opportunities/
  • Applications due September 30, 2016
  • Need cover letter, full CV, teaching dossier, brief outline of current and proposed future research interests, and 2 samples of published work.  3 letters of recommendation emailed directly to faculty. 
  • Appointment begins July 1, 2017
  • Particular areas include but not limited to: human development/equity across life course; health/mental health; neuroscience; and education for professional practice.  Also hiring assistant professors in gerontological social work, "social work and information" with focus on big data in social work, and clinical practice. 
  • Preference given to Canadians but all encouraged to apply.
  • Does anyone know anything about this school- What's it like? politics? etc.  I'm interested in applying and also am wondering about the academic environment
  • Here's what I can tell you: expectations with respect to publishing are high, both to get hired and then to get to tenure. There is a huge emphasis on hiring professors who have practice experience - it doesn't HAVE to be clinical practice, but they definitely look for that. Teaching is highly valued, both within the school and within the university. Different academic world in Canada - 12 month pay, funding is mostly used to pay graduate students and the cost of conducting/disseminating research, course buy-outs don't really exist, and it's a far more egalitarian culture (in academia and in Canadian society). Great benefits are possible (e.g., new faculty housing, university-based (amazing!) day care, spousal hire) but not guaranteed. In terms of the academic environment, it is quite collegial and civilized. A few very minor political issues, but nothing that causes undo stress or interrupts the capacity to work together effectively. There is good institutional support, but don't expect that to be in the form of cash. MSW students are great. Read up on AOP (anti-oppressive practice) - it's huge here and in Canada.
  • THis is very helpful.  Thank you!

  • Does anyone know what tenure looks like now in the UW system? I've been hearing a lot of concerns regarding this, but nothing specifically from social work.
  • Tenure protection is no longer codified in state statute, though this was an unusual protection enjoyed by UW faculty anyways. The Board of Regents, who are appointed by Governor Walker, have argued that current tenure policy is now similar to many peer institutions, which is arguably correct. However, there may be more changes to come. What's perhaps more concerning in the short-term than tenure changes were massive budget cuts to the UW system enacted by the state legislature in 2015. The faculty that I spoke to about the tenure changes largely seemed unconcerned and like the tenure changes were being overblown, though they're also mostly older and perhaps confident that they'll be retiring before the end of tenure at public universities becomes a real threat. The university and the school of social work lost some really good faculty members this summer due to tenure changes/budget cuts/other morale issues, so all of these issues are certainly on the minds of people there.
  • Madison lost 3 TT and 3 full-time NTT (Clinical Professors, Senior Lecturer) in 1 year.
  • Due to the political stuff? Or is it school climate?
  • Any news? 12/6
