The Faculty of Arts at the University of Regina invites applications for an Assistant or Associate
Professor position for the nomination of a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Indigenous
Peoples and Global Social Justice, commencing 1 January 2018. The successful candidate
will have a PhD and a strong record of research accomplishment (as evidenced by publications
and research grants) in any relevant social sciences and humanities.
The Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Peoples and Global Social Justice will focus on Indigenous issues in the international context and will be concerned with Indigenous cultural, economic and political demands, rights, and aspirations from the perspective of global social justice.
Not only does this area of research seek to investigate the global connections of historical and
contemporary challenges experienced by Indigenous peoples around the world, it also recognizes
and engages Indigenous peoples as both active agents and claimants of international rights. The
perspective of global social justice expands the scope of intellectual inquiry beyond state-bound
social justice and international justice between states; it investigates the structures of power
and domination that operate simultaneously from the local to the global levels. The successful
candidate will also have a demonstrated knowledge of North American Indigenous perspectives
and issues. The candidate will be a leader in building interdisciplinary and collaborative research
projects or partnerships that contribute to knowledge production and mobilization in the area of
Indigenous Peoples and Global Social Justice.
The Canada Research Chairs (CRCs) are established as part of a national strategy to foster
research excellence. The nominee must meet the requirements for the position of Tier 2 Chair
as defined by the CRC program. Please consult the Canada Research Chairs website for full program information, including further details on eligibility criteria ( http://www.chairs-chaires.

the Faculty of Arts, provides support for community-engaged research. The Faculty of Arts also
closely collaborates with the First Nations University of Canada. The candidate’s research program can benefit from and further contribute to this collaboration.
