Job Summary/Basic Functions

The Eastern Kentucky University’s Department of Social Work is seeking applications for an open rank tenure-track faculty member who will be assigned to teach in both the MSW and BSW programs, with primary assignment in the MSW online program. This is a 9-month, full-time position beginning in August 2023. Salary range is $56-60k with the opportunity to teach additional courses in the summer by contract. The BSW program has been accredited since 1977. The MSW program anticipates full accreditation by October 2023.

We seek a faculty member who is interested in promoting an innovative, student-centered programming that values interprofessional collaboration associated with addictions intervention, mental health, child and family services, social advocacy and justice, and leadership and management. We further hope this new faculty member will help us demonstrate how to apply social work practice, theory, and research as part of our MSW program concentration in interprofessional social work practice.

The candidate selected will teach and engage in ongoing scholarship and service to the profession and community consistent with University expectations for tenure-track faculty. This includes an 80% (4×4) teaching responsibility. We have a course facilitator model which enables smaller class sizes and team collaboration. Remote candidates are encouraged to apply but must be able to teach in person (if needed) in the Richmond KY BSW program, maintain service standards as part of tenure requirements, and comply with limited outside-employment stipulations.
