: The University of Chicago Crown School of Social Work, Policy and Practice (Crown Family School) invites applications for tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professors with specialization in the area of policy and programs that aim to improve the well-being of low-income individuals and families.

We have opportunities for scholars in two distinct areas:

  1. Policy analysis: Candidates for this position will have expertise in assessing policy outcomes in areas that may include—but are not limited to—poverty and income assistance, employment and work, child, family, and caregiving, housing, social determinants of health, or neighborhood and urban policies. Successful candidates will have advanced quantitative skills and experience working with large data sets, including surveys, administrative records, and/or other types of secondary data. We also welcome applicants who specialize in research using mixed methods, simulation, longitudinal, and multi-level designs.
  2. Policy implementation, frontline practice, and/or community-oriented approaches: Candidates for this position might investigate issues such as how policies are experienced by participants and/or delivered by workers; policy and program innovation at the state, local, or community level; or mutual aid and grassroots approaches.

Examples of areas of interest may include—but are not limited to—studies of street level bureaucracy, governance, administrative burdens, racialization in the policy process, or community-led alternatives. This position is open to diverse methodological approaches. Successful candidates for both positions will engage in scholarship that is theoretically and empirically driven, innovative, and has clear implications for practice or policy. We encourage applications from scholars who think critically about the policies and programs they study, recognizing the larger structures of oppression within which they are embedded. Teaching and mentoring is expected at all levels but primarily at the graduate level. The anticipated start date is July 1, 2023, or after. Applicants must possess a doctorate (or have a doctorate by the date of appointment) in social work, public policy/administration, sociology, public health, political science, economics, or a related field. Applicants should submit a cover letter, a Curriculum Vita, a statement that outlines research and teaching interests, and two writing samples that best represent the applicant’s approach (applicants at the dissertation stage should include part or all of their dissertation for one of these).
