Academic Jobs Wiki

Next Year's Social Work 2016-2017 (for positions beginning in 2017) wiki is here: Social Work 2016-2017

Page for Academic Positions in Social Work that begin in 2016.

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.
  • Please feel free to add topics here!
  • List of Schools: Post information about positions, here:

I wanted to wish everyone a very happy and successful New Year! I hope you lend that dream job and it all works out for you!

How many people are updating or monitoring this page?[]

39 (4/4/16)

How many folks are on the market for a social work job without an MSW (having a master's in something else, getting or have a PhD in social work)? How has this experience been for you?[]

Hired at an R1.

In line with the question above, how has this experience been for those with an MSW but no post-master's practice experience?[]

Hired at an R1 with no post-MSW practice exp. (x2)

How long after your campus visit did you receive notification of an offer/reject?[]

  • Received an offer that I accepted about 2 weeks after a campus visit. With the other campus visit, I've not received any notification and that visit was in mid-December. If you haven't heard anything from a place you are interested in, I'd say go ahead a reach out to the search chair to get an update on their process. Godspeed!
  • I think it really depends on their particular process: how many people they're interviewing, if they have to wait to do all of the interviews before offering, how many levels of administration it has to be approved by, if holidays are slowing down things, their manners, etc. I got three offers all in the same week but the visits were spread out over October and December. And I still haven't received any notification on a campus visit I did in November. I echo that you could touch base, especially if it's been awhile. If you have any changes on your CV (new publication or something like that) you could ask for an update on the search while sending along your updated CV; that always felt less awkward to me. Good luck!
  • I've had five visits so far. The schools differ in lots of ways, including manners:
    • The first school let me know they hired someone else approximately five weeks after my visit. (In a form email with my name filled-in.)
    • The second offered me a position exactly one month after my visit.
    • The third has not gotten back to me after nearly two months. I reached out to let them know about the other offer, but they ignored me. I sent a follow up email to the chair of the search committee a week later, still nothing.
    • The fourth school emailed two weeks later to let me know they hired someone else. 
    • The fifth school invited me after I told them I had an offer elsewhere. The dean told me I'd get a call either way, one week after my visit. No contact was made. After two weeks, I contacted them to let them know I needed to give my answer to another school. They informed me they offered the job to someone else.   
  • Offer # 1: about 2 weeks after campus visit 
  • Offer # 2: about 1 month after campus visit
  • Offer = about 1 month after campus visit
  • I've had three viists so far. One school worte me about two weeks later with rejection letter. One school called me about a month after, telling me they wnet with someone else. The other one I heard nothing after two months. I reach them and they told me they went with someone else. Three entirely different experiences.
  • I was offered the position 2 days after my visit. 
  • When it got to the point where it was 10 weeks since my campus visit and I had not heard anything, I reached out to the search chair to get an update. 

Salaries offered - helpful to list with school ranking (R1 or teaching)and cost of living:[]

Q: I think it will be helpful if posters add the positions they have applied for.  

-83k, R1, city with moderate cost of living x3
-71k, public R1, city with low cost of living
-75, public R1, city with low cost of living
-81, public R1, city moderate COL
-68k, public R2, low COL
-66k, public R2, low COL
  • Q: Is this a 9-month salary? (1/28/16)- Yes
-80k, public R1, high cost of living
-75k, public R1, city, moderate cost of living
-82k + 2 years summer salary (2 months per summer), public, teaching, city, high COL
- 62k, public R2, low COL, assist. prof. position 
-90k, private R1, high COL, Assistant Professor 
-88K, public R1, high COL, Assistant, + 2 years 3-months per summer salary (initial offer was 84)
-65K, public R2, low COL, assistant professor

Tips for salary negotiation- Have folks successfully negotiated salary increases? If so, what did you base your requested salary amount on? Any tips for advocating for the increase?[]

First, I suggest you review your offer with a trusted mentor or colleague. Decide whether or not you would accept the offer as it is or not. After I got the initial job offer the Dean gave me two weeks to consider the offer. I was able to search their salary database to determine the salary of the last person that was promoted to tenure so I had a sense of what I could work with. However, the Dean offered me more than that person so I kept that in mind but my chair wanted me to ask for more salary. I scheduled a phone conference with the Dean within the two week period as I had several questions I needed him to answer (mostly questions my chair told me to ask). After he answered all my questions I asked him if there was anything in the offer that wasn't negotiable and the dean said everything was negotiable but that it's always easier to give cash versus hardline items like salary. Honestly, it was a great offer to start with but I agreed with my chair and wanted more salary. So the Dean just offered a small salary bump and more summer salary, so I was happy with that. Good luck!

  • Thanks for such a thoughtful and detailed response. Very helpful!

Texas Christian University (TCU)         []

  • Campus visit this week (1/21/16). 
  • Offer made (3/7/16).
  • Offer declined (3/15/16)
  • What made you decline the offer (3/28/16)
  • Personal reasons, mostly. They were unable to give a delayed (Jan) start, which I needed (moving related concerns). Their offer for startup funds was low, and they couldn't negotiate. Their offer for salary was OK, but, again they were unable to negotiate. They couldn't provide any relocation support/expenses. Finally, they were unable to offer a 2:2 teaching load (which I needed, and was upfront about from the beginning). It's a great school/program. The faculty were wonderful. I would have (likely) taken it if they were able to support in the areas listed above. (3/29/16)

University of Connecticut (CT)[]

  • Skype interview scheduled (11/16)

  • Invited to Colorado reception 10/8 x2

  • This school is notorious for their strong preference for GWB, UT-A, and UW grads. Several people have said you need to have a personal or professional connection to someone on the search committee to get a invitation to campus. FYI- Almost always hire youth development and child welfare people despite other areas they claim to recruit. I've heard they prioritize candidates' connections over their actual job talk so network as much as you can! Also said they'll have a new dean next year. 
  • Just FYI...last two years faculty hires had PhD's from UT-Arlington (2015), University of Southern California (2014), & Columbia University (2014).
  • Dean called to schedule a campus visit and I didn't attend any of those schools listed for my PhD (10/19)
  • I did a campus visit last year (took a different position; the vibe on the campus visit was very odd to me and didn't fit at all with my preferences for a position), but I also didn't attend one of the schools mentioned.
  • Same experience here for my campus visit. Glad to know I wasn't the only one that didn't fit the "profile"
  • DU is definitely getting a new dean next year. Last year's hire is a Macro person (specifically doing work in criminal justice policy), while 2014 brought in a person doing work on fathers from an intersectional lens, and someone else doing social network analysis specifically around substance use, HIV, and homeless young people. Not a ton of PYD or child welfare on faculty at the moment.
  • Scheduled campus visit scheduled (10/20)
  • Post-CSWE rejection email (10/21)
  • Post CSWE rejection email received on 10/21
  • List sent out DU GSSW students of 5 campus visits and the individuals visiting
  • Seems like they hire every single year. A rapidly growing faculty or attrition?
  • Lots of retirements. About 1-3 folks have retired each year for the past few years. Haven't seen any TT faculty leave in the few years I've been in the PhD program.
  • And, additional tenure track line items as well.
  • Six campus interviews scheduled - (2) Columbia (2) USC (1) GWB (1) Jane Addams
  • Rumor has it that the majority of the campus visit candidates were post-docs
  • Two offers made and accepted ( neither were post-docs)

  • They have released the job description for tenure-track assistant professors on their website. Looking for someone with strong publications (10/22)

  • Have been told that they look for people with a strong publication record (some people are applying with 5-15 publications) and to apply early (10/22)
  • Application is through Interfolio. It requires at least three publications to even submitt. If you do not have at least three do not even bother. Save your time.
  • Wouldn't hurt to ask if they will take other writing samples (e.g., dissertation chapter, pubs submitted for review) for those applicants who are more junior?
  •  I submitted an application with unpublished writing samples because those are actually the best representation of my scholarship. Maybe my application will be dismissed in the first round, but one can't be considered at all if one doesn't apply
  • rejection email (11/23) X7
  • It's really strange- sent so many emails to the Chair of the Search Committee, but not one email got responded. Seems like they only look at graduates of high ranking schools. I doubt  if they even look at applications from lower tier schools.
    • I know someone working there now that went to a 3rd tier school. This person described the environment as intense with 70+ hour work weeks.

  • I met with five faculty members (including one of the co-chairs) x3

  • Is UW your top choice?
  • Good question. I didn't neccesarily have a top choice. I just applied to places that seemed like the best fit for me and then would find the "one" through campus visits. I think I could be very happy at the place I already recieved an offer at, without having to wait for the possibilty of "something better".

  • One campus visit scheduled for December 1st.
  • Two more campus visits scheduled December 14th and December 16th.

  • For those who have been monitoring this page, I wonder who deleted all of the information that had been posted about VCU related to the tension between the faculty and the Dean. It is widely known this is an issue.  Deleting it here won't make people be less wary of taking a job there.
  • It is also a well known issue that someone who left VCU constantly brings the issue up to this page regardless of job posting. The grievance is understandable, but this place has no more or less issues than what other schools are experiencing.     
  • While it's true that every place and organization has issues; however, it is helpful as a new graduate entering academia for the first time to read about posts as above since work environment plays an important role in my decision.
  • I would strongly disagree with the bullet point above.  The issues at VCU exceed many of the other schools that I am familiar with.  While everyone has their own experience and option, it is difficult to dismiss the issues that the school has.  Do you know how many faculty have left VCU (not including retirement) since 2011???
  • I truly hope you find a better way to process your grievance rather than sticking around this website... It's 2016 and things got changed ever since you left. 
  • I have never posted in the VCU thread before but I have to say I heard the same negative things and it was from people who had had campus visits and were just reflecting on what they observed.
  • The real issue is leadership. Junior faculty don't get proper support because of no leadership (partially because of average university system too). School lost its direction, although it's not unique to this place only. Dean is on his own and the rest look forward to transition. No clear political divide between juniors and seniors though, so culture wise it's not too bad. Some information in this thread is a bit dated from my point of view.
