Applicants will demonstrate a record of, or clear potential for, excellent research, teaching, curriculum development, and publication. Applicants will demonstrate a history of success in culture-based education and ethical engagement from within, or in respectful collaboration with, Anishinaabe communities, organizations, and/or institutions. Familiarity with cultural protocols, experience in curriculum development for culture-based education, and fluency in an Indigenous language (particularly any variety of Anishinaabemowin) are also assets.
Rank and salary will be commensurate with experience and academic degrees held.
