Stony Brook University is an internationally renowned public research institution (R1) recently designated as a State University of New York (SUNY) “flagship”.

The SSW's distinguished faculty engage in practice-oriented and policy-relevant research in several areas including: disability; gender; intervention research; the social determinants of health and mental health; structural racism; environmental justice; immigration; criminal justice; among other areas. The SSW has an enrollment of approximately 700 students in its BSW, MSW, and PhD programs with curricula grounded in a student-centered and evidence-informed pedagogy. We are seeking to hire two Assistant professors to join our vibrant and engaged community, and who will expand the research methodological strengths, areas of research, and instructional profile of Stony Brook's School of Social Welfare.
