Job Description

Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream - Indigenous Cultures and Societies

Woodsworth College
University of Toronto

Woodsworth College  offers a variety of teaching opportunities. The successful candidate will develop course  offerings and teach  in the Academic Bridging Program  (ABP), a program which provides access to degree studies in the Faculty of Arts and Science. ABP is often the chosen pathway for Indigenous students, newcomers, learners with disabilities and other underrepresented groups. The ABP student population is diverse; academic experience and skills span a wide range  in the classroom. Course design  and delivery aim to provide  all students with the best opportunity to develop the academic skills necessary to pursue degree studies. The successful candidate will also teach  in the highly successful Woodsworth ONE program at Woodsworth College. The ONE programs are a combination of first-year  seminar courses exploring the topic of Order and Disorder or Popular Culture coupled with co-curricular experiences. Both ABP and the ONE programs are designed to build a community of learners and support students transitioning to university  studies. A proposed program in Digital Humanities may provide  an opportunity to develop and deliver a course(s) examining human  culture,  art, literature, history, geography, and/or religion  using computational tools and methodologies. The successful candidate will demonstrate a strong  commitment to undergraduate teaching, especially students from widely diverse  backgrounds including those coming from non-traditional pathways, and an emerging record of leadership in studies of Indigenous Cultures and Societies.

Woodsworth College  seeks a scholar with an emerging record of exceptional teaching and pedagogical research, with experience and a demonstrated commitment to pedagogical enquiry and teaching innovation.  

Long-term ethical engagement with Indigenous communities, organizations, and institutions and evidence of understanding the importance of consensus- building  relationships would be an asset.  Engagement with Indigenous communities will be demonstrated through strong  reference letters, and should include  a letter of support commenting on Indigenous community engagement, and other supporting documentation.
Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

This position is part of the University of Toronto’s response to the calls to action in Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission  (TRC) report.

The University of Toronto  is strongly  committed to diversity within its community and especially welcomes applications from racialized persons / persons of colour, women,  Indigenous / Aboriginal People of North America, persons with disabilities, LGBTQ persons, and others who may contribute to the  further diversification of ideas.
All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however,  Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.

Job Requirements

Applicants must have a Ph.D at the time of appointment, or shortly thereafter, in a social sciences or humanities field with extensive research and teaching experience demonstrating a deep understanding of Indigenous cultures and societies as well as Indigenous knowledge systems, methodologies, and epistemologies.

The successful applicant must have experience as a course instructor, a record of excellence in teaching in both small and large enrollment class settings, teaching-related activities such as curriculum development and student mentoring, as well as demonstrated knowledge and experience in Indigenous-based teaching methods, and a demonstrated commitment to pedagogical practice and teaching-related scholarly activity.
