In keeping with its ongoing commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, the University of Guelph invites applications from outstanding First Nations, Matis and Inuit candidates to fill five tenure-track or tenured faculty appointments at the rank of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor or Professor.
Successful candidates will be respected scholars in a relevant field to the University of Guelph, will have strong links to Indigenous communities, and will be expected to contribute to the development of academic and research programs. To be considered for one of these positions applicants must have completed, or be close to completing, a doctorate degree (PhD). Outstanding candidates will be considered without a PhD if they are able to demonstrate an equivalent combination of education and relevant scholarly experience. Faculty members are expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses, develop a nationally and internationally recognized research program and provide service to the University and their discipline.
The University of Guelph is a mid-sized comprehensive university with more than 21,000 undergraduate and 2,100 graduate students. The main campus is situated on the traditional territory of the Attawandaron people and the University respectfully acknowledges its Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and Matis neighbours as it focuses on strengthening those relationships. The University has identified a strategy to increase knowledge creation by First Nations, Matis and Inuit scholars and to encourage the development of the next generation of scholars. The University is a research leader in Canada, with an international reputation for its commitment to students, their education and success.
The University combines outstanding teaching, along with experiential learning, research opportunities, and co-operative education outside of the classroom. The University of Guelph offers a wide variety of programs and courses, all taught by outstanding often award-winning-faculty who are committed to a curriculum that integrates a strong foundation in broad-based liberal learning with concentrated study in specialized and applied fields.
Consideration of applications will begin as they are received and will continue until the positions are filled. Applicants should submit a letter of introduction, curriculum vitae and a statement of research and/or teaching interests. Shortlisted applicants will be requested to arrange for letters of reference and/or a letter of support from an Indigenous community leader, government or organization to be sent under separate cover.
