Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Teacher Education
The School of Education invites applications for a tenure track position in Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Teacher Education beginning July 1, 2022.
Candidates should possess a doctorate in Education with a focus on equity, diversity and inclusion in teacher education. Candidates with a minimum of Master of Education with a partially completed doctorate in Education will be considered with preference being given to the doctorate qualification. Graduate studies must be in teacher education and one or more of the following priority areas or closely related fields: social justice, equity, and inclusive schooling; Indigenous education and culturally responsive pedagogy; gender and sexuality studies; and/or disability studies. Preference will be given to applicants with lived experience of marginalized identities as this is seen to be fundamental knowledge that is relevant to this position.
Applicants are expected to provide evidence of scholarship with an emerging or established research record in the area of specialization. Knowledge and understanding of P-12 schools and educational systems is considered an asset. Experience teaching both on-campus and remote pre-service teachers would be an asset.
The hiring committee recognizes that scholars have varying career paths and that career interruptions can be part of an academic record. Additionally, in line with SSHRC considerations for merit review of Indigenous research, there is a recognition that reciprocity and co-creation in community-based research is a significant aspect of this work not always captured by conventional scholarship records. Candidates are encouraged to provide any relevant information about their career experience and/or career interruptions.
How to Apply: Applications must be submitted electronically. Applicants should provide a letter of intent, current curriculum vitae, a teaching dossier outlining their teaching philosophy and evidence of teaching experiences, a statement of research agenda and research contributions, and the names and contact details of three referees who may be contacted.
