Open Rank Faculty, Tenure-Track/Tenured

The University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration (SSA) invites applications for a tenure-track, open rank position in the field of direct practice in social work and social welfare. We seek candidates with an established record in practice-relevant research and scholarship. Examples include scholars with expertise in clinical processes, mental health services, implementation science, prevention and intervention, and the integration of that expertise with a program of research and training of students that shapes the field of direct social work practice. We are particularly interested in candidates whose scholarship and teaching advance the health and wellness of individuals, families and communities in an increasingly diverse society.

Applicants must possess a doctorate (or have a doctorate by the date of appointment) in social work or a related social science field. Applicants with a master’s and/or doctorate in social work are strongly preferred. Applicants should submit a cover letter, a statement that outlines research and teaching interests, a Curriculum Vita, a sample of 2-3 current writings (applicants at the dissertation stage should include part or all of their dissertation), and contact information for at least three references. Consideration of applications will begin on October 7 and will continue until the position is filled or the search is closed; early submission is encouraged.
