Family Science and Social Work: Assistant Professor (multiple positions) to teach graduate and undergraduate social work courses; advise students; develop a research and publications agenda; seek external grant funding, as appropriate; and be engaged in service at the departmental, college, University, and professional discipline levels. Each Assistant Professor position is tenure-track and begins in August 2023.
The Department of Family Science and Social Work (FSW) promotes a comprehensive understanding of the interconnected relationships between theory, research, and practice (e.g., prevention, intervention) by incorporating knowledge, values, and skills from the fields of social work, human development, and family science. Our programs prepare students to ethically respond to the complex needs of individuals, families, communities, groups, and organizations, from a global, social justice orientation. Faculty value the role of intersectionality, positionality, and critical reflexivity in their work.
The College of Education, Health and Society (EHS): Founded in 1902, the College of Education, Health, and Society was Miami University’s first professional school and home to Miami’s first graduate of color.
