Canada Research Chair Tier 2 – Anishinaabe* Healing and Reconciliation

Algoma University invites applications for a Canada Research Chair (CRC) Tier 2 position at a rank to be negotiated based on qualifications and experience. It is anticipated that this CRC position will provide support to the Anishinaabe Studies program.

Algoma University has a special mission, as articulated in the Algoma University Act, to cultivate cross-cultural learning between Aboriginal communities and other communities, in keeping with the history of Algoma University and its geographic site, which was the home of the Shingwauk Indian Residential School from 1874 until its closure in 1970. Shingwauk Hall, built in 1934-35, remains central to the campus and a significant landmark of Sault Ste. Marie.

Algoma University has identified “Anishinaabe and Indigenous Communities” as one of its four main research clusters (for more information, view the Strategic Research Plan (PDF). The University is committed to research that develops and disseminates knowledge in critical areas of relevance to Indigenous communities and to all Canadians, including: health and wellness; traditional knowledge; Indigenous methodologies; decolonization; archival studies; epistemologies and pedagogy; history and philosophy; culture, language, literature, music, and visual arts; governance and law; and environmental land use. Specifically, Algoma is looking to establish a research chair focused on addressing issues related to healing and reconciliation and the critical roles played by research and education in contributing to these ends that will serve both Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities.

The Tier 2 Canada Research Chair will be a scholar of note who will be able to advance the fulfillment of the special mission and Strategic Plan of Algoma University. We are searching for a scholar who has a deep understanding of Indigenous cultures and education, and an appreciation for the valuable historical and contemporary archives of the Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre (SRSC), which includes the Aboriginal Healing Foundation’s (AHF) project and research holdings. The Research Chair will also have opportunities to collaborate with the Children of Shingwauk Alumni Association (CSAA), Shingwauk Kinnomaage Gamig (SKG), and Algoma’s Anishinaabe Initiatives Division. Given the cross-cultural and multidisciplinary opportunities for research in the field, the Research Chair could have a background in a variety of disciplinary or interdisciplinary areas, as long as the focus of the research addresses healing and reconciliation, as described.

The appointment will be tenured or tenure-track, at the rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor commensurate with the level of experience. Applicants should possess a PhD (or equivalent), a superior research profile in the proposed area, a demonstrated ability to obtain external funding, and identifiable potential for international scholarly recognition. Teaching duties consist of two (3-credit/36 hour) semester-length courses per academic year in the area of Anishinaabe Studies or related program areas. Evidence of a strong teaching record is highly valued. Fluency in an Anishinaabe language is an asset.

Tier 2 Canada Research Chairs are intended for exceptional emerging scholars (i.e., candidates must have been active researchers in their field for fewer than 10 years at the time of nomination). Applicants who are more than 10 years from their highest degree and where career breaks exist (such as through maternity leave, extended sick leave, or clinical training for example) may have their eligibility for a Tier 2 Chair assessed through the program’s Tier 2 justification process. Please contact the CRC website for full program information, including further details on eligibility criteria.

Application packages, which should include a letter of intent, curriculum vitae, statement of research achievements and future objectives, evidence of teaching effectiveness and the names and contact information of at least three referees, must be emailed to Dr. Donna Rogers, Academic Dean, at deanapps@algomau.ca. Application materials should be submitted as a single combined PDF with the file name identifying the applicant. Please submit applications by Friday, March 30, 2018.

The position is open to all qualified applicants. The University is an inclusive and equitable campus encouraging applications from all qualified people, including persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities, and Indigenous persons.

The successful candidate, as a condition of employment, will be required to provide a Police Records Check, which is acceptable to Algoma University and administered by the Director of Human Resources.
