Located in downtown Toronto, the largest and most culturally diverse city in Canada and on the territory of the Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee and the Wendat Peoples, the Department of Philosophy in the Faculty of Arts at Ryerson University invites applications for a tenure track position with an Area of Specialization in Indigenous Philosophy, broadly construed, at the rank of Assistant Professor, effective July 1, 2022, subject to final budgetary approval.
This opportunity is only open to individuals who identify as Indigenous. Recognizing the underrepresentation of Indigenous faculty, this opportunity will support the University’s commitment to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action and the University's Standing Strong Task Force Report and Recommendations.
The successful candidate will engage in a combination of teaching, research and service duties, maintaining an inclusive, equitable, and collegial work environment across all activities. Responsibilities will include: pursuing an original and independent research program that produces high-quality research; engaging in teaching duties (2+2 course load, which is the Department teaching standard) including teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; supervising graduate students and contributing to curriculum development as appropriate; and participating in the academic life of the Department of Philosophy, the Faculty of Arts, the Indigenous community on campus, and the University, through service activities.
