Assistant or Associate Professor - Social Work
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||New York, United States|
|Position:||Assistant Professor, Associate Professor|
The Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Social Work at the College of Staten Island of The City University of New York invites applications for an anticipated tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor or Associate Professor of Social Work beginning August, 2013.
The Bachelor of Science in Social Work (BSSW) program at CSI is undergoing initial accreditation and was granted Candidacy by CSWE in February, 2012. We are also developing an MSW program with plans to admit students in fall, 2014. In part due to our location on the former site of Willowbrook State Hospital -- closed by consent decree in the 1980's because of inhumane conditions -- our MSW program will have a concentration in Social Work Practice with People with Disabilities. The concentration uses a lifespan approach grounded in social constructionism. Responsibilities include teaching, curriculum development, engagement in an active and productive research and publishing agenda, advisement, and service to the department and college.
A Ph.D. in Social Work or a closely related field, a Master's degree in social work, and two years of post MSW social work practice (micro, mezzo, macro, policy, research) experience is required. Candidates are required to have an established record of research and publications in peer reviewed journals with clear history of, or potential for, external support for scholarship.
While our teaching needs span the curriculum (practice, policy, research, HBSE, and diversity), we are particularly interested in candidates who have practice and/or research expertise in the area of disabilities (physical, developmental and/or mental health). We are also interested in candidates with interest in program development and administration.
The successful candidate will be committed to inclusive excellence and will have a history of effective and collaborative work with diverse groups. We encourage applicants who have experience teaching and mentoring diverse students. The College of Staten Island is committed to a diverse work environment that reflects the multicultural makeup of our student body. The Search Committee is especially interested in candidates who can contribute, through their research, teaching and/or service, to the diversity of the academic community. Salary: Assistant Professor: $42,873 - $74,133; Associate Professor: $55,602 - $88,418; commensurate with experience.
