Chair in Aboriginal Education
The College of Education invites applications for a tenure track appointment at the Assistant or Associate Professor levels in the Department of Educational Administration to commence July 1, 2013.
The successful candidate will hold a Chair in Aboriginal Education for the first five years of the appointment (renewable) and will provide academic leadership in Aboriginal education at the elementary and secondary levels. As well the individual will participate fully in undergraduate and graduate teaching, research, community outreach activities and collegial processes expected of faculty members. The strong outreach focus of the Department of Educational Administration through research, off-campus master of education cohorts, and work within the Saskatchewan Educational Leadership Unit (SELU) provides an ideal academic home for the successful candidate. The College of Education is committed to excellence in Aboriginal education, research, outreach, and also houses the Aboriginal Education Research Centre (AERC).
Candidates should have a doctoral degree or be near completion. Successful teaching experience in K-12 schools and demonstrated success in working with Aboriginal communities is a requirement. A strong track record of working to advance the rights of Aboriginal peoples and honour Aboriginal cultures would be a definite asset.
