The College of Social & Behavioral Sciences and Social Work invites applications for three tenure track faculty positions in the School of Social Work to begin September 2013. These positions may be filled at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. All three positions are nine-month academic appointments.
The School is a part of the College of Social & Behavioral Sciences and Social Work, which offers opportunities for creative interdisciplinary programming and research. The BASW and MSW programs prepare students for generalist and advanced generalist social work practice in both rural and urban communities, offering elective courses in such areas of practice as behavioral health, aging, child welfare, healthcare, disabilities, and domestic violence.
The successful candidate will have teaching responsibilities in both the BASW and MSW programs. The faculty member will be expected to teach social work practice courses and therefore a minimum of two years post-MSW degree direct social work practice experience is a requirement for a successful candidate. We are seeking three candidates with expertise in one or more of the following areas to fill the three positions. Please clarify your area(s) of expertise in your letter of application.
1. Children, youth and families in any practice setting including child welfare;
2. Leadership, supervision and/or administration for agency and community practice in any practice settings;
3. Micro practice with advanced clinical knowledge and skills in behavioral health practice settings.
Faculty responsibilities include maintaining an active research and scholarship agenda, and engaging in service to the school, college, university and community.
The position is expected to teach at least one course in one of the off-campus MSW/BASW programs currently located in Everett, Vancouver, and Yakima. The position may be expected to teach on the Cheney campus as well as the Riverpoint/Spokane campus. Summer teaching opportunities may be available but are in addition to the academic year workload.
Candidates hired in at the rank of Associate Professor must go up for tenure during their third year.
Position is open until further notice; screening will begin 11/26/2012. To be assured full consideration, your application must be complete and submitted through the online portal by the screening date. All materials will be held in strictest confidence; references will not be contacted until candidates have been notified.
