Page for Academic Positions in Social Work that begin in 2021.

Check out last year's page HERE .

Let's do this! Try to stick to a few guidelines when posting to keep things consistent:

  • Post information about the position (or positions) including rank, source of information, and desired specialties.
  • Update when you know if a school has announced or cancelled a search, done preliminary interviews, invited candidates out for job talks, or made offers, even if this information is anecdotal (but please note that it's anecdotal if it is)!
  • Add date of posting to information whenever possible.
  • Please Use "Heading 3" when adding names of schools to this page.

A couple of features of this page, based on additional posts from past years:

  • There are two general sections:
  • Discussion: Post other job search related information here. In the past, topics have included:
  • Tally of number of people checking this page 
  • Information about salaries offered relative to cost of living.
  • Information about the number of places people have applied, number of initial interviews received, number of campus visits/job talks, and number of offers.
  • Info on regular teaching load for each institution (e,g., 3 courses/semester is a 3-3 teaching load)
  • Please feel free to add topics here!
  • List of Schools: Post information about positions, here: FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS ACADEMIC, PLEASE DATE YOUR POSTS!

  • Open until filled, priority given to those who apply by October 31, 2020
  • Two tenure-track faculty positions (open rank) beginning in Autumn 2021
  • The dean has charged the search committee with identifying exceptional candidates who contribute to the diversity of the faculty and research conducted at the college. Substantive expertise in mental health practice, poverty and inequality, race and racism, or domestic violence is desirable, but exceptional candidates in other areas may also be considered. Community-engaged research is also valued. Because we would like to continue to build the college’s capacity in research methods, the committee will also consider candidates’ unique expertise in quantitative, qualitative, and technology-based data collection and analysis methods. We seek candidates who are committed to excellence in teaching and mentoring students, particularly diverse student populations and first-generation college students. (posted 10/12/20)
  • Two post-doctoral positions available
    • The Ohio State University (OSU) College of Social Work invites applications for two postdoctoral fellow positions with an emphasis on geospatial analysis for public health in the areas of addiction or child welfare research. The postdoctoral fellow will join a research team led by Dr. Bridget Freisthler in evaluating the efficacy of a number of different interventions designed to reduce opioid overdose deaths and increase permanency outcomes for substance-affected families in the child welfare system. Further, this position will work on areas related to racial equity in use of interventions for substance-affected families and adults. There will be considerable opportunities for the postdoctoral scholar to participate in intervention development and implementation, project coordination, recruitment, data collection and analysis, manuscript preparation, and grant writing. The position will entail some supervision and collaboration with graduate students, research assistants, and undergraduate students in the lab. Functioning somewhat independently, the Postdoctoral Researcher will design, organize and conduct highly specialized and advanced analyses using established scientific protocols and procedures and in some cases designing new protocols; summarize findings and publish results in research journals. The postdoctoral fellowship is for an 18-month period, beginning in January 2021.
    • The Ohio State University recognizes that diversity and inclusion are the foundation of our excellence and the College of Social Work recognizes that our strength rests in part on the diversity of our faculty, staff, and students. We, therefore, encourage applicants whose backgrounds, experiences, knowledge, and talents will promote an inclusive culture as diversity and social justice are central to our mission.
