Full-Time Tenure Track Assistant Professorships (three positions)

Posted on September 14, 2017

Location: New Brunswick, Camden, Newark

Rutgers University School of Social Work seeks dynamic faculty members to join our productive faculty in continued expansion of the School’s innovative programs, centers,  and institutes. We plan to add three faculty members to our tenure track faculty primarily at the assistant professor rank, though our search is open to candidates from all academic ranks.  

We seek highly motivated and productive scholars, and entrepreneurial and innovative thinkers, who have a strong commitment to research, social justice, and social work education. Successful candidates will be interested in inter- and transdisciplinary research that advances the reputation of the School. In this year’s search, we are particularly interested in scholars who can advance research agendas in the following areas: Addictions, Community Organizing, Criminal Justice, Intervention Research, Public Health, Interprofessional Health, Technology and Social Work, and Violence Against Women and Children (including teen dating violence, stalking, and perpetrators). 

Successful applicants should hold a Ph.D. in the area of Social Work or a related discipline. They should have strong methodological training, outstanding research achievements or potential for publication in top journals, and excellent teaching and communication skills. The new faculty member is expected to teach MSW and Ph.D. level courses, to be actively involved in research and grant work, and supervise Ph.D. students. Candidates should demonstrate achievement consistent with their rank. All candidates are expected to maintain an extramurally-funded research agenda while participating in the education of graduate students. As always, we seek to increase the diversity of our faculty, and welcome applicants from under-represented groups.
