Simmons University School of Social Work (SSW) is now accepting applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position.

This position, which is Boston-based, will start on or before July 1, 2020, subject to the selected candidate's availability.

Simmons University is a small, highly collegial and dynamic university located in the heart of Boston's world-renowned Longwood Medical Area. Simmons is comprised of an undergraduate liberal arts education program for women plus professional graduate schools with masters and doctoral programs for men and women, presenting unique and rich opportunities for interdisciplinary research and collaboration. The SSW is part of the College of Social Sciences, Policy, and Practice and offers degrees at the Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctoral levels (BSW, MSW, PhD). The MSW degree is offered through both our traditional campus-based program and via our innovative online platform, SocialWork@Simmons (SW@S). The MSW program offers a number of specialty certificates, including Social Work and Healthcare, Trauma Practice, and School Social Work Licensure. The Doctoral Program leads to the PhD degree with an emphasis on practice scholarship and research. Areas of current SSW faculty expertise include: dynamics of diversity, family and intimate partner violence, immigration, health and health policy, health disparities, aging, behavioral health, substance abuse, child maltreatment, social policy and innovations in social work education.

This is a full-time, nine-month academic appointment.. The successful applicant will have an MSW from a CSWE-accredited program and a PhD in social work or a closely related field. We seek candidates who have experience and scholarly expertise relevant to the needs of culturally diverse and oppressed populations with a commitment to social justice and addressing societal inequities. Candidates should be prepared to teach across programs. Preference will be given to candidates with experience teaching in the areas of policy and macro/organizational practice; those with research interests in areas that inform clinical social work practice are encouraged to apply. Candidates will have responsibilities for teaching, scholarship and service within the SSW, the College, University and larger community.

To apply, please submit a letter of interest, current curriculum vitae (CV), examples of written scholarship, and the names and contact information of three professional references.

Applications will be reviewed beginning November 30, 2019 and will be accepted until the position is filled.
