Critical Race Theory/Ethnic Studies and Humanities/Cultural Studies

September 12, 2013

The Institute for Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice located in the Faculty of Arts at the University of British Columbia invites applications for a tenure-stream position at the level of Associate Professor in Critical Race Theory/Ethnic Studies and Humanities/Cultural Studies – ideally in combination with a commitment/involvement in decolonizing knowledge projects. Appointment at the level of tenure-track Assistant Professor may be considered in exceptional circumstances. The anticipated start date for this position is July 1, 2014.

The Institute for Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice (www.grsj.arts.ubc.ca GRSJ) is a degree-granting academic unit that exemplifies UBC’s commitment to ensuring critical and decolonizing advances in knowledge, democratic communities, and equity in postcolonial, feminist, anti-racist scholarship, research, and teaching. Aboriginal engagement is a major pillar of the UBC Strategic Plan (http://strategicplan.ubc.ca/the-plan/aboriginal-engagement/). The GRSJ Institute offers an undergraduate major (Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice Studies) an additional undergraduate minor (Critical Studies in Sexuality), M.A. and Ph.D. programs in Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice Studies, and undergraduate and graduate courses.

The GRSJ Institute is an academic unit committed to inclusion, diversity and a high standard of interdisciplinary scholarship and instruction. Our research and teaching are responsive to Canada’s colonial histories, multilingual contexts and the changing global and transnational influences on political, economic and cultural contexts, communities, interventions and priorities. Institute faculty members and students engage in research collaborations with academic and praxis-oriented communities at the local, national, and international levels to advance theoretical understandings, practical knowledge, and social justice studies in the broadest sense. A major emphasis of the GRSJ Institute is on complex issues of decolonizing politics, equity and justice in a range of contexts and across a range of cultures.

We seek candidates whose scholarship makes a substantive, creative and interdisciplinary intervention in Critical Race Theory/Ethnic Studies and Humanities/Cultural Studies as these foci intersect in a global context with Trans*, Gender, Race, and Sexuality Studies and related community organizations and initiatives. The successful candidate will contribute interdisciplinary expertise and leadership to the development of a research agenda and academic programming in support of Critical Race Theory/Ethnic Studies. The GRSJ Institute is currently building capacity in Critical Race Theory/Ethnic Studies and opportunities exist to contribute to graduate and undergraduate curriculum development of an Undergraduate Minor/Graduate Specialization in Critical Race Theory/Ethnic Studies as well as collaborations with additional Social Justice units and initiatives in the Faculty of Arts specifically, and UBC more broadly. We seek a dynamic scholar and collaborative colleague with an internationally recognized, accelerating research trajectory related to Critical Race Theory/Ethnic Studies and Humanities/Cultural Studies – ideally in combination with a commitment/involvement in decolonizing knowledge projects that are relevant to the growing diversity of Canadian society and the consequences of globalism, neoliberalism and transnationalism.

Applicants are asked to submit: a letter of application describing their research and teaching interests and expertise and outlining the intersections with the position in Critical Race Theory/Ethnic Studies and Humanities/Cultural Studies; a teaching portfolio and evidence of teaching effectiveness (with course syllabi and evaluations); curriculum vitae; three samples of the candidate’s published work; and the names and contact information for at least four referees. Application documents must be submitted online by October 15, 2013 via the UBC faculty careers website, http://facultycareers.ubc.ca/16647. Consideration of candidates will begin on October 16, 2013 and will continue until the position is filled.

To ensure full consideration, please submit application materials by the date noted.

The starting salary for the position will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. This position is subject to final budgetary approval.

UBC hires on the basis of merit and is strongly committed to equity and diversity within its community.  We especially welcome applications from visible minority group members, women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, persons of minority sexual orientations and gender identities, and others with the skills and knowledge to productively engage with diverse communities.  All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
