Description

 The past year has magnified the ways that inequities—whether due to race, gender, sexuality, or income—contribute to health disparities. These inequities are a major public health threat and demand a concerted, interdisciplinary effort. At the College of Public Health, we dedicate ourselves to public health in all its parameters, from epidemiology to nursing, from social work to rehabilitation sciences. Social justice has always driven our work, understanding that individual outcomes are intricately tied to the larger systems we inhabit, is the foundation of our college.

Consisting of 20 disciplines, including a focus on Social Work, Temple University College of Public Health’s interprofessional culture fosters collaboration both within and outside the College.  We value differences among our faculty and believe that we can better serve and understand our Philadelphia community and beyond through the diversity of our individual faculty and our disciplines. Join us in our mission to develop progressive, compassionate researchers, practitioners, and clinicians to build a better tomorrow, grounded in creating the environments and health infrastructure that will make us the healthiest nation. 



Requirements

Positions and Qualifications. Applicants should have an MSW and a doctorate (e.g., DSW, PhD, EdD, DrPH) in social work, social welfare, or relevant discipline.  Candidates with a combination of a master’s degree, significant practice and university teaching experience will also be considered.  Although areas of teaching are open, we especially seek candidates with professional experience in clinical social work or child welfare/family development. We welcome applicants for classroom teaching, but particularly seek persons with experience in online education. This includes familiarity with learning management systems and communication/ educational software.  Please note that this is not a fully remote position.  COVID-19 vaccinations are required for employment at Temple University, unless granted a religious or medical exemption (see www.temple.edu/coronavirus).  

All faculty are active in the local community and contribute to the curriculum and the School’s committees. We value diversity and seek individuals committed to inclusivity in collaborative education and practice. We seek individuals prepared to join us in our commitment toward prioritizing sustainable, inclusive, and anti- oppressive practices. We welcome applications for January and August 2022. Rank and salary depend on experience and qualifications.

 

The School of Social Work. Dr. Philip McCallion, an expert in aging, dementia and intellectual disabilities, joined Temple as Director in 2017. Under his direction, SSW’s 23 faculty serve 800 students. The BSW program focuses on generalist practice and the MSW program requires advanced-year students to concentrate in a practice method and specialize in a field of practice. These programs are fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education through 2023. SSW plans to launch a doctoral program.

There is strong commitment to supporting students already in the workforce and building interdisciplinary educational opportunities. The School recently celebrated the graduation of its first fully online MSW cohort and is establishing an online BSW program for persons with Associate degrees. MSW students can earn a concurrent MPH and JD. A strong Department of Field Education places about 400 students annually. SSW contributes significantly to the College’s Office of Clinical Practice and Field Education, which makes 3,500 placements annually and maintains relationships with 3,000 community agencies. SSW faculty contribute annually to about 40 continuing education classes for 400 participants supporting the School’s growth in answering career development needs.

Faculty in the School of Social Work conduct research on fatherhood, aging, HIV/AIDS, mental health, substance abuse, health services, LGBTQ social and health issues, acculturation, interpersonal violence, trauma, racial-equity practices, and poverty. Opportunities for non-tenure track faculty exist to contribute to writing grants to support student training and education.

 

The College. Devoted to an interprofessional environment for education, research, and practice, the CEPH-accredited College of Public Health consists of academic units in the public health disciplines, health professions, and the School of Social Work, enrolling approximately 4,200 students.
