The Rutgers University School of Social Work is currently seeking a non-tenure, teaching track (NTT) faculty member to coordinate the MSW program’s Child Well Being Certificate. The Child Well Being Certificate program’s primary goal is to educate master’s level students in implementing developmentally-informed interventions in their social work careers with infants, children, and adolescents regardless of students’ practice specialization and across a range of practice domains and child-serving systems (child welfare, children’s mental health, education, juvenile justice, etc.). The faculty member will teach 3 courses per year, develop and place students in child and adolescent related field education settings, oversee student placement experience, manage student experience in the certificate program, teach Seminars in Field Instruction (SIFI), represent the school and the certificate program in the University and the community, and contribute to curriculum development. All NTT faculty members are expected to engage in scholarly/professional dissemination and service activities in accordance with their rank. This is a 12-month New Brunswick based position subject to contractual renewals. Rank appointment and salary is commensurate with experience.
