Description

School of Social Work

Open-Rank Computational Social Sciences

Multiple Open-Rank Positions to Begin August 2023

The School of Social Work at the University of Georgia, pursuant to its mission and values, invites nominations and applications for two new positions specializing in computational social sciences to begin August 1, 2023.  These tenure-track or tenured faculty positions are an academic 9-month appointment.  The successful candidates will be appointed at the rank commensurate with the candidate’s experience and will maintain an academic appointment in the School of Social Work. You will join an exceptionally talented and passionate group of staff and scholars, and there are opportunities to work in partnership with our Center for Human Trafficking Research & Outreach, Center for Social Justice, Human and Civil Rights, and the Institute for Nonprofit Management. Our faculty have a history of interdisciplinary collaborations with other entities within UGA, such as the College of Pharmacy, College of Public Health, Medical Partnership, College of Engineering, College of Family and Consumer Science, Mary Frances Early College of Education, School of Law, the Owens Institute for Behavioral Research, and others. This position is part of a campus-wide Presidential Interdisciplinary Faculty Hiring Initiative in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (AI) that aims to recruit a total of 50 faculty members who will educate students and advance research in data science, machine learning, and AI. The School of Social Work will be part of this initiative with two faculty positions in the area of applied social science interventions for community—one in computational social science and the other in human-centered computing (including app-based interventions). Rather than being housed exclusively in a single department, the majority of UGA’s newly recruited faculty will focus on the fusion of data science, AI, and computational social sciences in cross-cutting areas such as health and medicine, biomanufacturing, infectious diseases, integrative precision agriculture, ethics, cybersecurity, resilient communities, and the environment. Specifically, the candidate for these positions should bridge research efforts between Applied Social Science Interventions for Community cluster hires across the University in the College of Family and Consumer Sciences, the College of Public Health and the School of Social Work.

The School and Institution

Chartered in 1785, the University of Georgia in Athens is a Carnegie RU/VH university, and the state’s flagship institution of higher education. The School of Social Work provides professional education to over 500 students through its CSWE–accredited B.S.W. and M.S.W. programs, Ph.D. program, as well as the Master of Nonprofit Management and Leadership. The School of Social Work also offers joint M.S.W. degree programs with the School of Law, the College of Public Health, and the Emory University Candler School of Theology. The School of Social Work is nationally and internationally known for excellence in research, teaching, public service, international programs, and a commitment to social and economic justice.

An M.S.W. degree with two years post master’s practice experience is preferred but not required. The School of Social Work is committed to hiring diverse faculty who work toward alleviating social and economic disparities through scholarship/research, teaching, public service and/or administrative responsibilities. We expect successful candidates to share our commitment to diversity and social justice.
