Assistant or Associate Professor of Comparative Indigenous Studies

Company: Western Washington University
Location: Bellingham
Posted on: November 3, 2019

Job Description:

This Assistant or Associate Professor of Comparative Indigenous Studies position is a 1.0 FTE tenure track faculty appointment. The Center for Canadian-American Studies values candidates who proactively advance an understanding and knowledge of Indigenous studies. The successful candidate will have a multi-disciplinary, comparative, and critical approach to scholarship and undergraduate and potentially graduate education. Such work can focus on, but is not limited to, watersheds, land and governance claims, communities, language revitalization, trans-border organizing, climate change, and eco-cultural restoration. The Center values scholarly and pedagogical approaches, creative projects, and professional activities that examine Indigenous political refusal of borders and the impact of dispossessive frameworks of settler governance. The position begins September 16, 2020. Depending on qualifications, the successful candidate will be hired at either the rank of Assistant Professor or the rank Associate Professor. Please note that hiring at the rank of Associate Professor does not come with tenure. Both persons chosen will have an ongoing and formal joint appointment with WWU's Center for Canadian-American Studies and Salish Sea Institute as well as in the academic department of their area of specialization. WWU departments are housed in the following colleges and applicants from any discipline related to these colleges are invited to apply: College of Business and Economics, College of Fine and Performing Arts, College of Humanities and Social Sciences, College of Science and Engineering, Fairhaven College of Interdisciplinary Studies, Huxley College of the Environment, and Woodring College of Education. This position requires a strong commitment to teaching; the conventional teaching load for a new faculty member is six courses per year and the credit load varies by academic unit/department. If a candidate is hired at the Assistant Professor rank, teaching responsibilities will include core courses in Canadian-American Studies and/or Salish Sea Studies as well as courses in the successful candidates' area of specialization/designated department at both the lower- and upper-division level. If a candidate is hired at the Associate Professor rank, teaching responsibilities may also include courses at the graduate level, where/if appropriate. Each rank comes with different expectations in terms of advising, research, community engagement, and service. To be considered for the rank of Assistant Professor, candidates must already have an established agenda of interdisciplinary research in Comparative Indigenous Studies. This rank comes with minimal academic unit/department service expectations. In addition, the successful candidate(s) at this rank will have reasonable research and community engagement expectations in balance with their teaching/credit load and as part of the scholar's tenure and promotion commitments. For the successful candidate, the terms of expectations regarding teaching, advising, research, community engagement, and service will be agreed upon during contract signing in discussion with both the Center for Canadian-Studies and the designated academic department/unit(s).â?¢With the addition of this position, the Center aims to assist in the creation of a supportive environment for interdisciplinary collaboration and community building that connects faculty, staff, and Western's Tribal Liaison and local Indigenous communities. We aim to set up responsibilities for this position in ways that are sustainable and mutually supportive for the successful candidates and their university department and affiliated programs.
