Job Description

The Eastern Kentucky University Department of Social Work is seeking applications for a full-time, tenure-track faculty member for the Social Work Program. The successful candidate will bring proven ability to develop and teach online courses as well as traditional face-to-face classes. This is a 9-month position beginning August 2021. The Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program was first accredited in 1977 and has shown tremendous growth. We seek a candidate who is interested in developing an innovative, student-centered program in an academic environment that values a collaborative approach that integrates social work practice, theory, and research. Such a candidate will join a faculty that teaches and engages in ongoing social work scholarship and service to the profession and community consistent with University expectations for tenure-track faculty. Eastern Kentucky University, named among America’s best colleges by Forbes and among “Great Colleges to Work For” by the Chronicle of Higher Education, is a four-year public comprehensive university offering 149 undergraduate and graduate degree programs to over 16,000 students. Eastern Kentucky University is located in Richmond, Kentucky. Whether you prefer the relative peace and quiet of a small town or all the buzz of a large city, living in Richmond offers the best of both worlds. Richmond is a fast-growing but still quiet community of about 32,000 where the Bluegrass region and all its scenic horse farms meet the foothills of the rugged Appalachian mountains. Just 25 miles north, an easy drive on I-75, is Kentucky’s second-largest city, Lexington, population 305,000. Other large cities within an easy two-hour, all-interstate drive are Louisville, KY, Cincinnati, OH, and Knoxville, TN. Review of applications will commence immediately and continue until the position is filled.
