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!

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Teaching load is 2/2; 9 month contracts.
  • Anyone know anything about the climate of this department or expectation about bringing in grant funding?
  • Climate is excellent. There's lots of support for high research productivity and interdisciplinary collaboration, and work/life/family balance is celebrated. 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.)
  • Yes, can confirm that those are just requests generated automatically for incomplete applications
  • I talked to someone at their table at CSWE and she said they were running behind and the search committee hadn't met much yet -- she said not to be concerned if you haven't heard anything yet (10/23/17)
