Academic Jobs Wiki

Page for Academic Positions in Social Work that begin in 2018.

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: FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS ACADEMIC, PLEASE DATE YOUR POSTS!

11:2:1:0 (1/27/18)

14:9:3:? (1/19/18)

12:6:0:0. (4/6/18) -> I want to give a little context for this, plus rant a little. I went to a top 5 school, had a really good mentor, and did a two-year post-doc with some awesome scholars who are big names in their field. But I recently accepted a non-academic job due to those numbers listed. I’m in a somewhat niche area topically that’s very much related to some of the big areas in social work (child welfare, social policy/poverty), and I’ve published in said areas. But it was clear that search committees just didn’t see value in my research. I did the other things you’re supposed to do (publish, get external dissertation funding, have post-MSW experience) but none of that mattered. The trend of so many students doing post-docs now is really disheartening, and it seems that a lot of departments could do more to prepare students for the realities of an increasingly competitive job market. Thanks for listening. ;-)

  • Congratulations on your position, your colleagues and/or clients in your non-academic position will be lucky to work with you and benefit greatly from the analytic and critical thinking skills that you bring from your training. There are many good and rewarding career paths following the receipt of a PhD, which hopefully is true of the path you are taking.
  • I agree with the person who posted above me.  I also want to validate your experience.  I, too, was surprised at how competitive the job market was.  Best wishes in your new position!

1:1:1:? (5/20/2018) Anyone want to talk about their process between campus visit and offer?  Was there any contact in between, or total radio silence?  How long did it take for those of you who got offers to hear back?  The interview day went really well, so I'm totally perplexed by the dead halt in communication, but this is my first rodeo, so to speak.  Would welcome anyone's experience/ideas.

  • For me, the experience totally varied.  I sent a thank you e-mail to all places I went for a campus visit.  All sent me an e-mail back thanking me for visiting.  Thereafter, some schools were silent and others were in frequent contact (e-mail and/or phone) providing me updates on where they were at in the hiring process.  Not surprisingly, the places where I received offers from were those that followed up with me.  I think the degree of contact depends on how many positions they are hiring, their institutional transparency in the hiring process, and how well they view you as a fit with their institution.  Of course, my experience is just one.  Good luck!

Teaching Loads[]

  • When possible can we please add teaching load info to posts?  These are usually known quantities--they are not secret info--and they can matter a lot in terms of sizing up a job.

Timing of Positions[]

  • When can job seekers expect for the majority of full-time, tenure track positions to be posted?  In other words, is there a popular time when colleges and universities open positions to applicants?
  • A lot depends on the market/year, budgets, retirements, etc. Though, many positions should be posted in September ahead of CSWE. In previous markets, some top ten schools posted as early as June and, in other markets, as late as February or March. 

Website Helpfulness[]

  • In previous years this website was very helpful. People posted information about the jobs rather than simply pasting in an advertisement. We are all academics and should be able to find a job posting. I ask you to consider posting useful information. People pose questions about a university/School/ Department, etc. Consider answering. If you've heard back about a job, let us know.
  • Look back at older wikis (ex: 2013-14) to see how people have been helpful in the past.

The School embraces faculty scholarship that focuses on social and economic injustice, poverty, and disparities that impact quality of life, especially for African Americans and other historically oppressed populations.
The School has been continuously accredited during our 80-year history and is reaffirmed by CSWE through 2020.  We are a highly ranked graduate program at the university and currently listed as one of the top 50 MSW programs in the country. 
We are seeking candidates to teach in our direct practice concentration including human behavior content.

  • I also received an odd email about a month ago asking about the status of my doctorate.  I explained I would be complete by May or June and updated them on where I was in the process and the response was "This position requires a completed PhD."  I couldn't tell if it was a rejection or not since my PhD will be complete by the time the position opens.  Very strange

  • Scheduled phone interview (11/1) (x2)
  • Scheduled a zoom interview (11/2/17) (x3)
  • Had my interview with Iowa a few days ago - thought it went really well. They said they were going to try and bring candidates out before the holiday break (I am assuming before the december break not thanksgiving break)...Anyone else hear anything different?
  • I was told similarly. They want to have everything wrapped up by the end of the fall semester. I would guess they will do campus visits the first two weeks of December.
  • I heard the same. I am surprised they have not called people yet. Unless anyone else has heard?
  • One campus visit scheduled from Dec. 12-14 but there were two dates available - 12-14 and the 14- 15 (I think). So I am not sure how many people they are bringing out. Also, any word on the search for position 2? I am wondering if they are going to broaden that position if they didn't find a good fit?  
  • When did you get the campus visit offer? Good question on the other position. If they found two stellar candidates from this position I don't see why it wouldn't be possible...
  • position 2 is remaining gero focused--visits completed
    • The campus visit offer was extended last week monday (Nov. 20). 
  • Has anyone heard if UofI has made offers for either of the positions?
  • Rejected after campus visit (01.04.18). 
  • POSITION TWO: The University of Iowa, School of Social Work seeks dynamic candidates for a tenure-track assistant professor position (9-month academic year appointment) beginning in August, 2018. Candidates should demonstrate potential for a strong research agenda in gerontological social work.

  • Fairly mild winters on campus, about 27 inches of snow on average. Nice summers.
  • Anyone known anything about campus/departmental climate other than weather? (10/13) 
  • Doors are typically closed in the department, but I have heard from others that people are pretty collegiate.  The clinical professors and students are pretty diverse and amazing. 10/17

University of Kansas (KS)[]

  • CSWE Interview request (9/29/17)
  • CSWE interview scheduled (10/6/17) x2
  • Phone interview scheduled (10/31/17)
  • I'm surprised that no one has posted anything about the climate of this school. They have gone through alot of transitions of leadership, budget cuts and faculty leaving. There are other rumors but until substantiated its not public.  I would ask their junior faculty questions about the climate.
  • Thank you for asking about this. I would never want to work there based on what's been going on there in the past few years.
  • I am a junior faculty at KU and felt compelled to respond, particularly for anyone applying and/or interviewing with KU. Although we have had several leadership transitions and some challenges over the last couple of years, I believe this is not uncommon for Schools to go through. All schools face difficulties at times and must figure out how to grow from it and that’s exactly what the KU SSW has done during my time here. What is more important than the struggle is how we respond to the struggle. In the midst of challenging times, my colleagues continued to support each other, worked toward moving our School in a positive direction, and hired a Dean that supports our new mission and vision. I can honestly say that I am still happy and excited to be at KU, with no plans to leave, and I look forward to bringing in new colleagues who can help us continue to grow and become an even brighter and dynamic SSW. If you are interviewing with KU and would like to speak about this in person, please let the search committee know and they will be able to connect you with me or other junior faculty. 
  • The types of problems going on here are not common. While the conditions may be imporving, there is a long, steep road ahead. If you are visiting KU, do your research.
  • I wouldn't talk to the search committee about this, they will give you a positive spin on the issues and they cannot talk about the issues candidly.  The dean is still brand new. It would be an challenging situation for someone at the start of their career.

  • -Request for phone interview 11/1/2017 x5
  • Any sense of the salaries here? Based on public data, lookes like $62-67k for assistant profs.
  • Some in social work look even lower, around 55k. Consistent with below.
  • 3:3, it's 2:3 the first year. (1/7/18)
  • Offer accepted (1/11/18)
  • I know they were hoping to hire multiple people... anyone else accept an offer?
  • Can you share any details of your offer? E.g., salary, per conversation above? (1/12/18)
  • Accepted offer at 60k (admittedly less than I wanted, especially considering the cost of living in Portland) with a course release in the first year and some $$ for moving expenses. I was more concerned about fit and climate/culture than money, and USM seems like a great fit for me, so I decided it was worth going below my desired starting salary. --> Would you be willing to speak to your negotiation points as tips for the rest of us, given that you seem to have negotiated a salary that is a) higher than the current Asst. Prof. salary there, and b) maybe higher than the other hire?  Also interested in hearing about other perks!  Congrats to you both.
  • I have accepted the offer as well around 1/12/18 at low to mid-60s (less than what I wanted as well) but additional summer pay was appealing if I choose to teach. They offered several additional benefits other than salary that was more appealing than other offers I received with higher salaries. Moving expenses were a bonus!I 
  • It looks like there is another search currently underway -- anyone have any info?
    • One of their full professors is retiring, so I believe they're hiring for another position in addition to the three positions filled earlier (4/12/18)

University of Tennessee, Knoxville (Nashville satellite campus)[]

  • Does anyone know if supports for faculty at the Nashville satellite campus are equivalent to those at the main campus in Knoxville? And do faculty at the Nashville campus feel connected to those at the Knoxville campus? (9/28)
  • Yes, current TT faculty in Nashville here. The supports provided to the Nashville faculty are the same as those in Knoxville. We consider ourselves one faculty that are located at two different campuses. Our dean comes to meet with us regularly and the faculty will travel to Knoxville or Nashville to meet together for faculty meetings. I should also note that the Nashville facutly are the most friendly and supportive group of colleagues one could request. The mythical culture where doors are open and ideas are flying around from office to office is a reality here.
    • Really? I have heard quite the opposite about the support faculty give one another and the students in this program...
  • This response was incredibly helpful.  Thank you!

  • Also received a rejection text - really? This is what schools are doing now?
  • I couldn't believe it either. The text came through right as I was preparing to go into another interview at CSWE, so it was a real bummer.
  • The good news is they sent you something, instead of some schools just never getting back to you - but that is kind of a crappy way to find out. At least with emails you have to load your email and then open the email - so you might have been able to view the email at a later date. I am not really a fan of that style.

Lots of built in mentoring for junior faculty. There isn't necessarily pressure for grants as long as you can do high quality work without them. Lots of internal pilot funding and grants support makes getting external grants more possible if you need them to do your work. (10/1/17).
  • Anyone heard anything?  My references were contacted to provide letters and i was asked to submit writing samples  [same here 10/12 x4] (I believe that the application system automatically generates requests to letter writers and the application requires writing samples, so I'm not sure those are signs that they've started reviewing applications.)
