Job Summary
THE UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY, COLLEGE OF SOCIAL WORK (CoSW) is a renowned leader in social work. Our mission is clear: Through rigorous research, excellence in instruction, and steadfast service, the CoSW works to improve the human condition. Always, in all ways.

As the state’s flagship university, CoSW is committed to actualizing our mission through innovative, accessible academic programming. CoSW is home to Bachelor of Arts in Social Work (traditional and online), Master of Social Work (hybrid and online), Doctorate of Social Work (online), and PhD (traditional) degree programs. In addition to Lexington’s main campus, we have a satellite campus at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas.

To continue to advance our support infrastructure for CoSW, we invite applicants for one year (12-month), non-tenure eligible visiting faculty positions at the Assistant, Associate, or Professor rank in the Clinical Title Series to begin as early as Fall 2022.

Primary duties associated with this position involve provision of instruction, training, and advisement for students across all academic programs housed in the College of Social Work. In addition, this position will be responsible for curriculum development for graduate-level programming. Successful applicants will have experience teaching at the university level and demonstrated ability to effectively participate in scholarly activities.

The University’s mission involves three primary functions: instruction, research, and service. Each year, faculty work with the Office of the Dean to delineate their distribution of effort (DOE). This DOE outlines how faculty will spend their time. Of course, the DOE can fluctuate depending on an array of factors (e.g., clinical funding, new course development, etc.). Application reviews will begin immediately and continue until the position has been filled.

Applicants are requested to submit a curriculum vitae, a letter of interest detailing applicant’s goodness of fit for the position, and a brief description of relevant teaching experience (upload as Specific Request #1).

The University of Kentucky considers the health, safety and well-being of our entire community to be a top priority. In alignment with this priority, all new hires must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination or obtain an approved medical or religious exemption as a condition of employment. For areas that fall under the federal CMS mandate, start of employment cannot occur until two weeks after receiving the full COVID-19 vaccination series or upon obtaining an approved exemption. Only vaccines approved by the World Health Organization can be accepted.
