Assistant/Associate Professor, First Nations and Indigenous Studies
University of British Columbia
The Institute for Critical Indigenous Studies at The University of British Columbia invites applications from scholars in First Nations and Indigenous
Studies and related disciplines for a tenured/tenure-track appointment with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2022.
The areas of interest for this position are extensive to attract a range of compelling candidates, but we are particularly interested in one or more of the following areas: Indigenous oral history, governance, economies, and law; traditional ecological knowledge, science, geographies, and environmental studies; Black Indigeneities and solidarities; Indigenous feminisms and gender studies; and Indigenous psychology (clinical or counseling). We especially welcome applications from scholars doing work grounded in the cultural, political, and geographic histories and contexts of First Nations in what is currently called British Columbia.
We seek applicants who have a Ph.D. or a terminal degree in their field, a record of research publication commensurate with appointment at the Assistant or early Associate rank, a demonstrated record of successful undergraduate and graduate teaching or strong promise of the same, and verifiable connections to Indigenous communities in formal affiliation and/or established relationship. We encourage applicants with a demonstrated commitment to supporting and advancing areas of research and transformative teaching represented in the Institute, including Indigenous feminisms and queer/two-spirit studies; Indigenous philosophies, politics, policy and social change; ethical research practices; language revitalization; community-engaged and land-based learning; Pacific Indigeneity; Indigenous new media; literature and the arts.
Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
