  • 10/3/18 - YES!  I'm currently in my first semester as an assistant professor at Augsburg.  It's a really special program and University -- very diverse (especially the undergraduate program -- over 50% of students are students of color, and many of those are first generation students), small classes (I have between 11 and 17 students in my courses), and the entire university has a deep commitment to social justice and community engagement - not just the social work department.  There is a strong focus on teaching and you will be well-supported with great faculty mentors and peers, a well-integrated and organized curriculum, and tons of workshops and resources that help you become a more effective teacher and scholar.  The school is in the heart of a diverse and vibrant community in Minneapolis and takes its connection to the city and its neighbors very seriously. The university offers both a BSW and an MSW. The department currently has 11 full-time tenure-track faculty (this new hire will add a 12th tenure-line) and 2 full-time non-tenure clinical faculty.

The Temple University School of Social Work invites applications for early career tenure track faculty. We seek individuals committed to collaborative, interdisciplinary research in social work, public health and other aligned disciplines who address disparities in social determinants of health, improve university engagement with communities, contribute to the evidence base in social work, and advance social justice.

Qualifications. Applicants should have an earned doctorate in social work, social welfare, public health or a relevant social science discipline and have a research agenda appropriate to a research-intensive university. Individuals should demonstrate interest in working across disciplines to understand and intervene in factors that shape the health of individuals, families and communities with a particular interest in health disparity populations. Preferred candidates hold the rank of assistant professor or are completing a postdoctoral position and should be able to demonstrate both involvement in funded projects, and strong potential to obtain external funding as independent researchers. We value diversity and seek individuals committed to inclusive practices in education. Compensation, benefits and start-up are competitive.

Anyone know anything about the campus climate? 

  • I was a little concerned to see how many calls they have out within the College of Public Health, especially since they just brought on 21 people this year. That made me wonder a little about the climate, but I haven't found an explanation. Also, Philly itself can be a pretty tough city and the neighborhood surrounding the campus could make some feel unsafe. It isn't built-up and busy like the campuses in University City, it's kind of just in a seemingly lower-income Philly neighborhood.    
  • Answer: Temple's College of Public Health and School of Social Work are in growth period following the hiring of the dean several years ago. We have a large faculty and a large student body and have been hiring faculty in record numbers of four years. Achieving status as an accredited school of public health (following decades of having an accredited department of public health) required us to hire a number of faculty to fill new roles in epidemiology, biostatistics, health policy and environmental health. In addition, we have prioritized bringing in faculty across all the other disciplines (physical therapy, communication sciences, occupational therapy, recreational therapy, health informatics, athletic training, nursing) to live up to our pledge to reimagine public health in pursuit of the common good. The School of Social Work is integral to this mission. With a Director of SSW in his second year, we continue to seek additional early career and senior faculty to join the two new amazing tenure track faculty who joined us this summer. Regarding concerns about campuses relative to others in Philadelphia, we urge you to come and take a look at the dramatic changes occuring on and near our campus. Yes, we're an urban campus and that's not for everyone -- but it is ideal for living up to our mission of preparing social workers and other professionals in realizing social and economic justice. We're building new programs that emphasize interprofessional practice and clinics that will serve our neighborhoods. Take a look! Contact us.

Wayne State University (MI) Edit

Position Opening for THREE Assistant/Associate Professors (Posted September 19, 2018)

  • To begin August 2019
  • The School of Social Work at Wayne State University (WSU) in Detroit, Michigan is committed to its urban mission. We invite applications for three faculty positions at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, who are outstanding candidates with focused research, exemplary teaching, and commitment to community engagement. Evidence of a beginning research trajectory, potential for external funding and some teaching experience is desirable at the Assistant Professor rank. Appointment at the rank of Associate Professor with tenure requires a strong record of research, external funding, publications, teaching and service.

Content Areas for Interested Candidates

  1. Behavioral Health and Criminal/Legal Systems; Assistant or Associate (Posting# 043859). We are interested in a dynamic leader in this area of expertise who can step into our Center for Behavioral Health and Justice; capitalizing on the ongoing research, evaluation and technical assistance currently in place across the state. Expertise in behavioral health includes mental health, substance misuse, and /or co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. Expertise in criminal/legal systems include one or more of the following: law enforcement, diversion, courts, community supervision, jails, prisons and/or reentry. We are particularly interested in recruiting a scholar whose research agenda is integrated across these two disparate systems to the extent that they can be a ‘boundary spanner’ in developing, implementing and evaluating interventions – at the individual and policy levels. Because the genesis of problems facing individuals involved in the justice system are multidimensional, faculty in the position will be strongly linked with Wayne State University scholars in other departments and colleges (i.e., Criminal Justice, Sociology, Psychiatry, General Medicine, Public Health).
  2. Child Welfare; Assistant or Associate (Posting# 043857). Wayne State University School of Social Work has excellent relationships with Wayne County and the State of MI Department of Health and Human Services. Currently we are involved in several funded projects that provide support and technical assistance and opportunities for research. WSU is also home to the Merrill Palmer Skillman Institute for Child and Family Development – a world-renowned center of translational research – that includes an Infant Mental Health Program and Early Childhood Center. We are recruiting a scholar who has in-depth knowledge of the child welfare system, with expertise in abuse/neglect, foster care, and work force development in child welfare and/or integration of child welfare with other systems of care. Experience in management and analysis of large data sets would be advantageous. 
  3. Health Inequities/Healthcare Social Work; Assistant (Posting# 043858) Wayne State recently began a joint MSW and Masters of Public Health (MPH) degree program and we are excited to recruit a faculty member whose research and teaching is related to social determinants of health, health care systems, public health, environmental justice and/or epidemiology. The university and SSW are particularly interested in scholars focused on health issues pertinent to urban populations. Our campus supports a School of Medicine that partners with nationally known medical institutions and a robust research environment that includes an Integrative Biosciences Center (IBio), and a Center for Urban Responses to Environmental Stressors (CURES), fostering transdisciplinary urban health research and scholarship.

General Qualifications for all THREE Positions
