Canada Research Chair (Tier II) in the Politics of Decolonization - University of Calgary

Fri, 2017-11-10 21:02 -- manager

The University of Calgary is engaged in a consultative process with knowledge keepers, Elders, and leaders of the Treaty #7 peoples, the Métis Nation, and academics and university administrators. This ongoing process has resulted in the development of an Indigenous Strategy designed to guide the University’s relationship with the Indigenous peoples in whose territory the University resides. One of the goals identified during this consultation is to increase the number of Indigenous scholars in leading positions on campus. In addition to Indigenous cluster hires in the Faculty of Arts and the Werklund School of Education, the University of Calgary is now seeking three Canada Research Chairs (Tier II). 

The Department of Political Science invites applications for a Canada Research Chair (Tier II) in the Politics of Decolonization. We are seeking a scholar who will establish and maintain an active research program leading to excellence in our understanding of decolonization. Themes may include, but are not limited to, the study of political processes that redistribute land from colonial states to Indigenous nations, the revitalization of Indigenous land-based governance practices, the study of Indigenous decolonizing political movements, and gendered perspectives on decolonization. The successful candidate will be appointed at the rank of Assistant Professor (Tenure-track) or Associate Professor (with tenure).  The anticipated start date is July 1, 2018.

The successful candidate will hold a PhD in Political Science or a related field. The appointee’s research agenda may be grounded in any of the fields of political science (political theory, Canadian politics, comparative politics, international relations) or be inter-disciplinary in focus.  A research program focused on Canada would be an asset but is not required to be considered for this position. The successful candidate will be expected to build relationships with the Treaty #7 Nations and the Métis Nation.  This may include incorporating the experiences and needs of the Treaty #7 peoples and the Métis into their research. This appointment will contribute to the University of Calgary’s commitment to create a rich, vibrant and culturally competent campus – one that welcomes and supports Indigenous learners, is inclusive of Indigenous perspectives in teaching and learning, encourages Indigenous community partnerships in research and academic programming and is appropriate and thoughtful in its response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s ‘Calls to Action’.  

The successful candidate at the Assistant Professor level must demonstrate evidence of excellence in research, teaching and community engagement, commensurate with academic experience. This would normally include publications in high quality journals, success with securing competitive research funding, and evidence of a commitment to teaching effectiveness and to engagement with Indigenous communities, organizations and/or institutions. The successful candidate at the Associate Professor level must demonstrate a proven track record of research and teaching excellence, including a record of publications in high quality journals, proven success in obtaining competitive research funding, evidence of teaching effectiveness, and a record of successful graduate student supervision, where possible. The successful candidate at this level should also provide evidence of successful engagement with Indigenous communities, organizations and/or institutions, including evidence of success in community-engaged projects and scholarship.

The Department of Political Science is housed in the Faculty of Arts. The Department administers the International Indigenous Studies interdisciplinary program that attracts students from across the University. The program focuses on various aspects of Indigenous people’s experience including arts, culture, ways of knowing, languages, economies, politics, and community structures. The candidate’s willingness to teach in this program will be considered an asset. As part of its Indigenous Strategy, the Faculty has created eight tenure-track positions in Indigenous research and scholarship, across various departments. This community of scholars facilitates cross-disciplinary and collaborative research, education and outreach by building on Indigenous knowledges, cultures, traditions and experiences developed among, and in partnership with, First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada. The Canada Research Chair in the Politics of Decolonization will provide leadership in these areas.

Tier II chairs are intended for exceptional emerging scholars (i.e., candidates must have been an active researcher in their field for fewer than 10 years at the time of nomination). Applicants who are more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree (and where career breaks exist, such as maternity, parental or extended sick leave, clinical training, etc.) may have their eligibility for a Tier II chair assessed through the program’s Tier II justification process. Please consult the Government of Canada’s CRC website for full program information, including further details on eligibility criteria.

Interested individuals are encouraged to submit their application online via the ‘Apply Now’ link and include:

·           A letter of interest and curriculum vitae, including a statement providing evidence of the applicant’s connection to the Indigenous community

·          Three examples of recent scholarly work

·          Evidence of teaching experience and effectiveness

·          Description of a proposed 5-year research plan for the Chair

Applicants should also arrange to have three electronic confidential letters of reference sent under separate cover directly to the chair of the selection committee:
