Description:

The Department of Linguistics (Faculty of Arts) and of Department of Integrated Studies in Education (Faculty of Education) invite applications for a joint tenure-track appointment in Indigenous Language Linguistics and Education at the Assistant Professor level, to begin August 1st, 2019.

We invite candidates broadly interested in the areas of Indigenous language linguistics and education working from a community-engagement model. Supporting both departments’ growing contributions to Indigenous language research and education, the successful candidate will bring expertise and experience to one or more of the following areas: Indigenous language description, documentation, and revitalization; Indigenous language pedagogies and curriculum design; and Indigenous language policy and planning. The ideal applicant will complement existing strengths and research interests in both Linguistics and Integrated Studies in Education, will have lived experience in an Indigenous language community, a strong record of community-engaged scholarship, and evidence of a broader engagement with Indigenous methodologies, knowledge, and research ethics.

This hire is part of a larger McGill-wide initiative that prioritizes academic recruitment of Indigenous peoples in the areas of Indigenous Studies and Indigenous Education. Following the recent Provost’s Task Force on Indigenous Education and Indigenous Studies, the hire will join a growing network of faculty and staff that is committed to decolonizing methodologies and building Indigenous research capacity by supporting the culturally-responsive application of linguistics and education for revitalizing and maintaining Indigenous languages.

The successful candidate who satisfies the eligibility conditions of the Canada Research Chair (CRC) program may be supported by the University for nomination to a Tier 2 Chair in Indigenous Language Linguistics and Education, which provides protected time for research within a full-time academic appointment.

The candidate’s responsibilities will include teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level, student supervision, and research in Indigenous languages.

Candidates should have or expect to have a PhD in linguistics, education, Indigenous studies, or a related field.

Applications must be submitted online to the application link provided below.

Application Deadline: 04-Jan-2019 (Open until filled)
