Position Summary:

The School of Social Work at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill invites nominations and applications for a twelve-month, non-tenure-track, Clinical Assistant Professor faculty position (1.0 FTE). The successful applicant’s responsibilities will be equally divided between the 3-Year Winston-Salem MSW Program and the UNC CARES community engagement program in Chapel Hill. The mission of the School of Social Work is to advance equity, transform systems and improve lives. The curriculum supports this mission and includes a focus on evidence-based practice; concern for disadvantaged, vulnerable, and oppressed individuals, families, and communities; and the design and development of social interventions. The position is a twelve-month appointment beginning July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022 and is reviewed annually for reappointment.

In support of the 3-Year Winston-Salem MSW Program, we are seeking applicants with a breadth of social work experience both in teaching in the field of social work and working with older adults and adults with disabilities in the community. Specifically, expertise and ability to teach in the generalist curriculum of the 3-Year Winston-Salem MSW Program and field education are required. Applicants should have demonstrated skill and experience teaching graduate level classes and/or related trainings. The field education components of this job include responsibilities related to field planning, student placement, competency evaluation, and related monitoring of student learning. Additional responsibilities may include assisting with the development of field placement sites, recruiting and training new field instructors, and supporting the Director and Field Coordinator of the 3-Year Winston-Salem MSW Program. Travel to surrounding counties in North Carolina is required.

In support of the UNC CARES community engagement program, the applicant will be involved in the development of online curricula and training for its new Adult Protective Services (APS) Workforce initiative and community capacity building and technical assistance in support of its new Money Follows the Person (MFP) initiative. The APS initiative is targeted to social workers in County Departments of Social Services who serve older adults and adults with disabilities. The MFP initiative is targeted to older adults and adults with disabilities as it is designed to prevent their inappropriate institutionalization and if already in an institution, assist them where possible to return to the community with supports that ensure both their well-being and safety.

The School of Social Work offers M.S.W. and Ph.D. degrees. Dual degrees are offered with Law, Public Health, Public Administration and Divinity (with Duke University).

Experience teaching in a seminar-like format is preferred. Applicants must also demonstrate a comprehensive knowledge of the health care and human service fields in North Carolina as fields and services impact the welfare and well-being of older adults and adults with disabilities living in the community and residential care settings.
