Position Start Date: July 1, 2023

Sociology Department, Glendon College, York University

The Sociology Department, Glendon College at York University invites highly qualified applicants for a professorial stream tenure-track appointment (specialization open) at the Assistant Professor level, to commence July 1, 2023.

This opportunity is part of the University’s Affirmative Action program that has been developed based on the special program provisions of the Ontario Human Rights Code. Selection will be limited to individuals who self-identify as Indigenous peoples of Canada. To receive full consideration, candidates should complete and submit this voluntary self-identification form as part of York University’s Affirmative Action program (detailed below).

While Glendon is committed to bilingual excellence, Indigenous scholars are required to be academically proficient in only one colonial language – English or French. In recognition of Indigenous languages as officially recognized languages in Canada, knowledge of an Indigenous language, particularly Anishinaabemowin, is considered an asset.

We particularly welcome applicants who: (a) have advanced scholarship and/or extensive experience in the promotion of Traditional Knowledges, Indigenous philosophies, and methodologies; (b) value experiential learning and innovative pedagogy; and/or (c) have lived experience in Indigenous communities demonstrated by a strong record of Indigenous community/organizational engagements.

York University acknowledges its presence on the traditional territory of many Indigenous Nations. The area known as Tkaronto has been care taken by the Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, and the Huron-Wendat. It is now home to many First Nation, Inuit and Métis communities. We acknowledge the current treaty holders, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. This territory is subject of the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement to peaceably share and care for the Great Lakes region. York University is committed to providing an inviting, rich and supportive work, study and research environment to its Indigenous students and Faculty members, not just through the allyship of its current faculty members, but also through structures such as the York University’s Centre for Indigenous Student Services (CISS) and the newly formed Centre for Indigenous Knowledges and Languages, which are guided by the Indigenous Framework for York University, the York Indigenous Council, and Skennen’kó:wa Gamig, or the House of Great Peace, a space for Indigenous faculty, staff, and students. York is committed to cultivating understanding of, respect for, and connections with, Indigenous communities. The University is working to support the recruitment and success of Indigenous undergraduate and graduate students, the integration of Indigenous cultures, approaches and perspectives into curricular offerings and research, collaboration with Indigenous communities, and recruitment and retention of Indigenous faculty and staff.

Glendon College is home to the Glendon Indigenous Affairs Council. The Faculty is also currently developing a multi-disciplinary Indigenous Futurities program, whose central objective is to examine intersections of Indigeneity and decolonization within the liberal arts through Indigenous worldviews and philosophies (for more details, see the GIAC Vision Report).
