Detailed Job Description

Applications are invited for a tenure-track, 9.5-month faculty position, at the rank of assistant professor, to begin in mid-August 2015.

The inaugural class of the Master of Social Work students was admitted to Quinnipiac University in August 2013, and the program is in candidacy through CSWE.  

The MSW program is part of the School of Health Sciences, which offers health science programs at the undergraduate and graduate level.  The graduate level degrees offered are in biomedical sciences, occupational therapy, physical therapy, health sciences, and social work. The School is located on the North Haven campus, along with schools of education, law, nursing, and medicine.

Quinnipiac University is a thriving private university with 6,500 undergraduate and 2,500 graduate students, located in Hamden, Connecticut, approximately 90 minutes from New York City and two hours from Boston. Consistently ranked among the best universities by U.S. News & World Report and recently named one of the 2013 Great Colleges to Work For by The Chronicle of Higher Education, Quinnipiac offers 58 undergraduate majors and 20 graduate and professional programs, including those leading to degrees in both law and medicine. At the core of Quinnipiac is its commitment to teaching and collaboration. Quinnipiac fosters partnerships among students and with faculty; it is a spirited, welcoming campus.


Faculty members are expected to: teach graduate level classes; advise MSW students; pursue scholarship, and engage in service to the department, school, and university.

We are particularly interested in applicants who have expertise and teaching experience in two or more of the following areas: global health, policy, inter-professional education, issues of diversity and oppression, 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. 

An active role in developing this new MSW program is expected, as it applies for full accreditation through CSWE.

Qualifications & Special Instructions to Applicants

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.  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. Academic rank will be assistant professor (if ABD, you will be hired as an Instructor and the doctoral degree must be awarded prior to fall 2015 in order to be given the Assistant Professor rank).


Applications must be submitted electronically, and should include a CV and a thoughtful cover letter describing your interest in the position, and explaining how your background and experience qualify you for this position.
