The Native American Studies Program at Colgate University invites applications for a tenure-stream position in contemporary Native American and Indigenous topics at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning fall semester 2024. We seek an engaged interdisciplinary candidate who combines scholarly work on pressing Indigenous issues with a demonstrated record of deep commitments to Native American communities. We are especially interested in scholars researching in US, Canadian, or South American-based Native, Indigenous, or First Nations. The research focus is open; areas of specialization could be but are not limited to: Native sovereignty; resource stewardship; environmental justice; Native language politics; education and alternative epistemologies; food sovereignty; visual arts; music; theater; literature; media and popular culture; contemporary ethics; queer Indigenous studies; critical museum studies; and/or decolonization. Completion of a Ph.D. in Native American Studies or a related discipline or interdisciplinary field is required prior to or shortly after the date of hire.
The candidate will be expected to contribute to the curriculum of the Native American Studies Program. Colgate sustains an undergraduate curriculum of Native American studies of the Americas, with more recent offerings that frame Indigenous studies in a Pacific and global context. We welcome candidates who will offer an array of Native American Studies courses that draw on their expertise. All Colgate faculty are also expected to participate in all-university programs, including the Liberal Arts Core Curriculum.
We invite applicants to submit a cover letter (1-2 pages), a CV, and the names and email addresses of three references willing to write letters on their behalf through Interfolio at http://apply.interfolio.com/130249. Colgate faculty are committed to excellence in both teaching and scholarship. A candidate’s cover letter should outline their scholarly work and their approach to teaching. Colgate strives to be a community supportive of diverse perspectives and identities, and candidates may want to review Colgate’s key goals in this area. In their cover letter, candidates must describe how their approach to teaching, scholarship, mentorship, and/or community service might support the university’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.
