Faculty Job in Academic & University Tenure-Track Faculty Positions in Social Work (2 positions) – 44968

Contemporary research shows that many of the inequities from the past, such as racial and ethnic disproportionalities in the juvenile
justice and child welfare systems and racial and ethnic disparities in education and health outcomes, still remain today. Often the result
of structural violence, racial, social, and environmental inequities are the root of early disadvantage in education, health, work, income,
place of residence, and quality of life. And for many in our communities in the U.S. and around the world, early disadvantages persist
throughout the life course. Segregation influences access and utilization of social services including mental health services for different
race and ethnic groups. While there are several reasons for these seemingly enduring problems, empirical research on these issues and
interventions is limited. Current research typically examines these issues from a single discipline, and we are seeking faculty interested
in pursuing this important topic from a transdisciplinary perspective.

We are seeking scholars at the Assistant Professor rank
who will further the school’s expertise in the following:

  • Research and scholarship on the causes and consequences of structural
    violence and its disproportionate effects associated with race, income, gender, and “place” across the life course. Competitive
    applicants will be knowledgeable about the impact of these factors on quality of life experiences, such as health disparities, trauma and
    mental health, interpersonal violence, education, or employment.
  • Research and scholarship about immigrant communities, families, or
    individuals around the world and in the U.S. BCSSW through its Latino Leadership Initiative (LLI) is giving attention to Latino communities.
    Competitive applicants will have knowledge about pathways to well-being (social, emotional, and economic) across the life course for Latino
    communities in the U.S. and/or abroad.

The Boston College School of Social Work seeks faculty candidates committed to an active
interdisciplinary research agenda. Our faculty lead research, scholarship, and teaching related to children, youth, families, aging, global
issues, mental health, health, and the environment. We seek scholars who are firmly rooted in understanding and addressing racial, social,
and environmental inequalities, and associated outcomes. We welcome scholars who are bold, novel, and transdisciplinary in their approaches
to these vexing problems that cross conceptual and disciplinary borders. We are particularly interested in faculty who can build knowledge
that directly or indirectly influences clinical practice, policy, or both. An applicant’s teaching and research interests should focus on
clinical or macro or both.

Inquiries regarding these positions may be directed to Ruth McRoy or
Marcie Pitt-Catsouphes, co-chairs of the BCSSW Search Committee, at mcroy@bc.edu or pittcats@bc.edu.

Application reviews will begin in September 2017. The first round of interviews will take place in October/November. Campus visits for
final candidates usually take place in December/January, and the positions will begin in Fall 2018.
