Position Information

Position Number 13055
Functional Title Academic Professional Assistant Professor
Position Type Non-Tenure Stream
Position Summary

The Department of Social Work at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) invites applications and nominations to join us in our online Master of Science (MS) in Gerontology Program. We are seeking one 12 month, non-tenure, academic professional track (APT) Assistant Professor. This position is available Summer 2017. The successful candidate will serve as Coordinator of the asynchronous online Master’s in Gerontology Program and will, specific to the MS Program:

  • Teach online courses in the MS program
  • Advise and mentor students
  • Work with UNCG Online to market and promote the MS Program
  • Assist in the design and updating of online courses

APT faculty are fixed-term, non-tenure track positions that come with full UNCG Benefits. This is an especially exciting time for UNCG’s Department of Social Work as we enter our forty-fifth year of partnership with the Department of Sociology and Social Work at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (NCA&T), a historically black university (HBCU) located in Greensboro. Specifically, both the Joint Master of Social Work (JMSW) Program and the BSW Program with NCA&T, have enjoyed a forty-four-year-old field program partnership. UNCG’s Department of Social Work has 300 BSW majors, 90 MSW students, and 15 full-time faculty. The Department, School, and University place a high value on community-engaged scholarship.

A strong commitment to diversity/inclusion, social justice, and student-centered education is essential for this position.

Additionally, the successful candidate must:

  • Work effectively/engage in collaborative scholarship with a culturally diverse department (Social Work)
  • Be an active citizen in the school and university, with partnering universities and the broader community
  • Possess a Master’s Degree and a Ph.D. (preferred) in gerontology, social work or a related field.
  • Have been successful or demonstrated potential for effective teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level
  • Have excellent interpersonal skills

Because this position will teach nearly exclusively in the MS Gerontology Program, the following online and gerontology-specific skills will also be sought:

  • Experience in the design of asynchronous online courses
  • Experience in teaching and mentoring asynchronous online students
  • Experience working with community agencies that serve aging populations.

UNCG’s Department of Social Work has CSWE-accredited BSW and MSW programs and National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE)-accredited BSW and MSW school social work licensure programs. The Department has external funding from the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA), National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other sources.
