The Steve Hicks School of Social Work at The University of Texas at Austin invites applications for a full-time tenured faculty position and appointment as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.

This appointment will be in an administrative capacity (12 months at 0.5 FTE) and as a full professor with tenure (9 months at 0.5 FTE). This arrangement will allow the post-holder to continue to pursue research and teaching at a reduced scale while emphasizing the administrative role. We are particularly seeking an established and exceptional scholar with an active research program and an administrator with a proven track record. Areas of research and teaching focus are open but should align with the mission of the Steve Hicks School of Social Work and complement its faculty's strengths.

The Steve Hicks School of Social Work, which is ranked among the top 10 programs of social work education in the country, awards BSW, MSSW, and Ph.D. degrees within a research-intensive public university. The school is committed to supporting excellence in scholarship, teaching, and service among its faculty and students.


Candidates must hold a doctoral degree in social work (Ph.D. or equivalent) or in an aligned field as well as experience and demonstrated success in leadership and administration.
