The Coalition Scholar position is open to outstanding faculty and doctoral students whose teaching and research focus on policy practice in social work, and who have knowledge of and scholarly interest in the intersection of race, ethnicity, and poverty. The Scholar will lead efforts to acquire baseline information about the state of preparation and resources available in schools of social work with respect to the teaching of policy, policy advocacy, and policy practice. Furthermore, the Scholar will identify how current social workers are engaged in policy analysis, development, and advocacy roles.

It is expected that the Coalition Scholar will work collaboratively with the Coalition and staff members in the development of a research plan that builds on existing work and resources.

Social work faculty members and doctoral students with strong backgrounds and interest in policy are encouraged to apply. Doctoral students must be in the 3rd or 4th year of their program to qualify.
Additional qualifications include:

  • Data analysis and survey development experience
