Ten new faculty positions, including call for Indigenous applicants

Emily Carr University of Art + Design, located on ancestral and unceded Coast Salish territories in Vancouver, Canada, is now recruiting five permanent Indigenous faculty members.

Aside from teaching and research in their respective fields, the new faculty will contribute to ongoing initiatives to strengthen cultural competency at every level of the university and support the global process to decolonize the academy.

Indigeneity is one of the core priorities of the university’s strategic plan, and we are committed to integrating Indigenous knowledge systems into our curriculum, pedagogy and governance.

These new faculty will bolster our current Aboriginal programming, forming and informing the critical mass of leading artists, designers, and media practitioners centered around Indigenous methods and perspectives at Emily Carr University.

This opportunity is open only to qualified individuals who self-identify as Indigenous Peoples of North America or Peoples of Turtle Island, including those who identify as First Nations (status, non-status, treaty or non-treaty), Métis, Inuit, or Alaskan Native, Native American, and Native Hawaiian Peoples. This initiative is a special program under the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal.

We invite applications to these tenured and tenure-track positions within the disciplines of the Faculty of Culture + Community, the Audain Faculty of Art and the Ian Gillespie Faculty of Design + Dynamic Media, and particularly in the areas of: 3D Computer Animation, Communication Design, Critical + Cultural Studies, Foundation, Industrial Design, Interaction Design, Interdisciplinary Art Praxis, Painting, Photography.

We are also recruiting additional full-time faculty members for tenured and tenure-track positions in the programs listed above.

Position details with application information can be found on the Emily Carr Careers website.

The university will start reviewing applications in March, and will continue to accept applications until the positions are filled. Materials received prior to the due dates outlined in each posting are best assured of receiving full consideration.  All inquiries, nominations, and applications will be held in strictest confidence.

Emily Carr University is committed to supporting equity, diversity, inclusion and dignity of all people as well as establishing equal opportunities in employment. To that end, the university will seek to identify and remove potential barriers in employment including its recruitment, hiring, training, and promotion practices and foster a climate of equity.
