Detailed Job Description

The College of Arts and Sciences at Quinnipiac University admitted its inaugural class of Master of Social Work students in August 2013, and has applied for candidacy through CSWE.  Applications are invited for two tenure-track, 9.5-month faculty positions, at the rank of assistant professor.

About the MSW Program:

Quinnipiac University has a commitment to the core values of high-quality academic programs, a student-oriented environment, and a strong sense of community. The master of social work program will reflect the mission to prepare students for achievement and leadership in the field of social work.

The MSW program's foundation curriculum and the advanced concentration curriculum reinforce the Quinnipiac value base of understanding real-world issues through practice and the consideration of different perspectives. Every MSW student will have a course on inter-professional education and the advanced concentration curriculum is focused on health/behavioral health. The curricular approach that is being developed in the MSW program and in other programs, such as in the Schools of Health Sciences, Medicine, and Nursing, will make the programs unique by directly engaging students in inter-professional education and the health care team approach.

The MSW degree will meet the academic requirements for licensure as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). Accreditation is being pursued through the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).


We are particularly interested in applicants who have expertise and teaching experience in two or more of the following areas: global health, behavioral health, policy, inter-professional education, and advanced community/organization practice.  Areas of research or practice experience should include health, aging, mental health/substance abuse, and/or child and family welfare and justice.  Candidates should also expect to play an active role in developing this new MSW program, as it enters candidacy through CSWE.

Specific job requirements  for tenure track faculty include developing and teaching graduate courses as well as guiding, advising, and mentoring students.

Tenure track faculty will maintain an active research agenda that will lead to publications in nationally or internationally recognized journals.    

Service to the University community is required.

Qualifications & Special Instructions to Applicants

Our faculty are committed to excellent teaching balanced with scholarly activity. Successful candidates must demonstrate a strong potential for or have an established record of excellent teaching, research, and service.

Requirements include an MSW degree from a program accredited by CSWE, at least two years of post-MSW practice experience, and a doctorate in social work or a related social science field.  An MPH is preferred for one of the positions, as a joint MSW/MPH degree is planned in the near future. Academic rank will be assistant professor (if ABD, the degree must be awarded prior to fall 2014 for the rank of assistant professor).

Teaching experience at the MSW level and/or field instruction experience is preferred.  Candidates should also demonstrate a commitment to teaching excellence, scholarly research, and inter-professional collaboration.

The positions will begin in mid-August 2014; screening of applications will begin September 16, 2013 and will continue until the positions are filled. Some screenings interviews may be done at CSWE APM in Dallas.
