The Faculty of Arts and Science at the University of Toronto invites

The successful candidate is expected to have an active program of research,
with particular attention to Indigenous knowledges, a deep understanding of
both Indigenous and non-Indigenous pedagogies in diverse contexts, a
commitment to the vision of Indigenous Studies with its focus on languages and
Indigenous knowledges, and a strong record in ethical engagement and
collaboration with Indigenous communities, organizations, and institutions.
The successful candidate will be involved in research using Indigenous and
community-based methodologies. S/he will have a Ph.D. in a relevant academic
discipline and a scholarly record in a discipline in the area of Indigenous
Studies or a discipline related to the area of Indigenous Studies, to permit
cross-appointment in a related academic unit. Evidence of excellence in
research will be demonstrated by publication in leading journals and/or
presses in the field, a significant contribution to the literature,
presentations at significant conferences, a strong record in Indigenous
research methodologies and ethical engagement and collaboration with
Indigenous communities, organizations, and institutions, and strong
endorsements by referees. Evidence of excellence in teaching will be
demonstrated through teaching accomplishments including the mentoring and
research supervision of undergraduates and graduate students, letters of
reference, and the teaching statement submitted as part of the application.
Administrative experience is highly desirable.

All qualified applicants are invited to apply online by visiting the

vitae, a statement outlining current and future research interests, a
statement on teaching philosophy and experience and copies of two relevant
publications. Submission guidelines can be found at:

2016. 

Applicants should arrange to have four letters of reference, including one
that speaks to community engagement, sent directly by email (on letterhead,
signed and scanned) to the application email by the closing date.

The University of Toronto is strongly committed to diversity within its
community and especially welcomes applications from racialized persons /
persons of colour, women, Indigenous / Aboriginal People of North America,
persons with disabilities, LGBTQ persons, and others who may contribute to the
further diversification of ideas.

Survey. This survey is voluntary. Any information directly related to you is
confidential and cannot be accessed by search committees or human resources
staff. Results will be aggregated for institutional planning purposes. For
