The University of Chicago Crown School of Social Work, Policy and Practice (Crown Family School) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor to start on or after July 1, 2022, in the research areas of social inequality and racial justice. We seek scholars whose research considers the causes, consequences, and responses to inequality and racial injustice in the domains of housing, mental health, and/or poverty in the United States or globally. The successful candidate will engage in scholarship, which is theoretically and empirically driven, innovative, and informs practice or policy. We are particularly interested in scholars with advanced quantitative skills. Teaching and mentoring is expected at all levels but primarily at the graduate level.


Applicants must possess a doctorate (or have a doctorate by the date of appointment) in social work or a related field. Applicants should submit a cover letter, a Curriculum Vita, a statement that outlines research and teaching interests, a sample of 2 writings that best represent the applicant’s approach (applicants at the dissertation stage should include part or all of their dissertation), and contact information for at least three references.
