Tenure Track Faculty Positions (Expertise in interpersonal violence among diverse populations)

Posted on December 11, 2020

Location: Downtown New Brunswick

Rutgers University School of Social Work (RUSSW) seeks dynamic scholars to join our productive faculty in continued expansion of the School’s innovative programs, specifically our Center on Violence Against Women and Children. We plan to add faculty members to our tenure-track faculty primarily at the assistant professor rank, though our search is open to candidates from all academic ranks. Candidates should demonstrate achievement consistent with their rank.

RUSSW seeks highly motivated and productive scholars and entrepreneurial and innovative thinkers, who are committed to high-impact research, social justice, and social work education. We welcome applications from scholars across methodological traditions (quantitative, quantitative, mixed methods, community-based participatory research). The School is regarded for its strong commitment to both R1-level scholarship and to our tradition of community-engaged research partnerships. We are specifically interested in candidates whose scholarship focuses on interpersonal violence among diverse groups and its relation to racism and other social and economic inequalities. The scholars work should connect micro-level variables to macro-level mechanisms in order to understand the causes and consequences of and solutions to violence, with the overarching goal of advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in their particular area of research.

We are dedicated to ensuring a diverse and inclusive faculty environment and especially welcome applicants from underrepresented groups. Faculty who join us will have the opportunity to work in one of the most diverse states in the nation and with a student body that represents a wide range of backgrounds, cultures, and identities. Our faculty is an open and collegial group, with a commitment to the success of our junior faculty.

Faculty members are expected to maintain an extramurally-funded research agenda, teach in the programs of the School (BASW, MSW, DSW and Ph.D.), supervise Ph.D. students, and engage in service to foster the missions of RUSSW and the University.

Minimum Education and Experience: 

  • Successful applicants should hold a Ph.D. in Social Work or a related discipline.
  • Applicants should have strong methodological training, outstanding research achievements, potential for publication in high-impact journals, and excellent teaching and communication skills.
