Faculty Openings

The Columbia School of Social Work (CSSW) invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor (pre-tenure).

At CSSW, we seek to place social justice and racial justice at the center of all we do. We acknowledge the persistence and devastating consequences of racist policies and practices and are committed to working in opposition to these forces to promote human well-being at every level across all strata of society, and to ensure that all can reach their full potential.

CSSW is now seeking scholars of race and racism, with a particular focus on anti-Black and/or anti-Latinx/a/o racism. We are adopting a “systems thinking” approach to analyzing the complex forces that drive disparities, and how those forces interrelate. A systems science mindset affords us the opportunity to explore how economic, education, criminal justice, child welfare, technology, implementation, and health systems are interwoven and have a deep impact on the well-being of Black and Latinx/a/o individuals, families, and communities. We are actively recruiting additional colleagues to join a growing cluster of post-docs and faculty at the junior and senior levels in the aforementioned areas to help untangle these formidable issues and reveal systems solutions to restructuring policies and practices to maximize well-being and achieve equity for Black and Latinx/a/o communities.

For more than 120 years, CSSW has been a leader in educating professionals for careers in social work practice, policy, and administration. The School offers master’s and doctoral programs that are widely recognized for their excellence. In addition, we aim to maintain a work environment in which all faculty can thrive.
