Position Titles: Two Open Rank Tenure-Track Positions in Social Work Addressing Black and Latinx Populations
Position Type: Faculty
Open Date: July 26, 2021
Close Date: Open until filled
The Boston College School of Social Work (BCSSW) intends to make two tenure-track faculty appointments beginning September 1, 2022. The two openings are open rank for appointment at assistant, associate, or full professor.
As one of the nation’s top 10 schools of social work, BCSSW is dedicated to pursuing pioneering research, scholarship, and practice to tackle some of the most complex social problems at home and around the world. BCSSW prepares scholars and social work professionals to create transformative, evidence-based interventions to improve the most vulnerable lives, with a particular focus on training leaders to advance equity, justice, and inclusion in diverse communities across the globe. As examples, our school’s Latinx Leadership Initiative, which received national recognition from Excelencia! in Education in cooperation with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, will be joined in the Fall 2021 semester by the Black Leadership Initiative and the Leaders for Equity and Justice in the Workplace certificate. We seek faculty who aim to support these efforts and more.
Scholarship and research with a focus on Black or Latinx populations
We are particularly interested in appointing an assistant, associate, or a full professor with a clearly articulated portfolio of research and scholarship in clinical, behavioral, community, or social policy interventions with Black or Latinx populations throughout the lifespan. Ideal candidates, depending on rank, must have training in piloting and scaling evidenced based interventions, extramural funding, and experience in community engaged intervention research.
Interested applicants should apply online via Interfolio (http://apply.interfolio.com/89542).
Applicants should provide a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a writing sample, an equity, justice, and inclusion statement, and three confidential letters of recommendation or evaluation. Additional documents helpful in the evaluation of the candidate are welcome. Inquiries regarding these positions may be directed to Dr. Samantha Teixeira, Chair of the Search Committee, at [email protected]
