The Department of Criminology at Ryerson University seeks to fill two tenure-track positions, one in the area of Indigenous Studies and the other in the area of Anti-Black Racism. The deadline for applications is November 26, 2018

Job Posting #1: Indigenous Studies

At the intersection of mind and action, Ryerson is on a transformative path to become Canada’s leading comprehensive innovation university. Integral to this path is the placement of equity, diversity and inclusion as fundamental to our institutional culture. Our current academic plan outlines each as core values and we work to embed them in all that we do.

The Opportunity

The Department of Criminology invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position, at the Assistant Professor level, beginning July 1, 2019, subject to final budgetary approval. The area of specialization is Indigenous Studies. Successful candidates will be expected to teach large introductory courses in Criminology as well as other courses in the area of Indigenous justice or law that contribute to our undergraduate (BA) program and our newly developed graduate (MA) program in Criminology and Social Justice.

The Department of Criminology in the Faculty of Arts at Ryerson University in the city of Toronto, on the territory of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and Huron-Wendat peoples, has built an outstanding reputation for scholarly work in the field of social justice, criminology, and law. The faculty are interdisciplinary with backgrounds in sociology, history, women’s studies, law, political science, geography and criminology. The Department has undergone extraordinary growth and diversification over the past decade and has recently developed an MA program in Criminology and Social Justice. We are housed in the Faculty of Arts, a vibrant and inclusive contributor to the education of over 39,000 undergraduate and graduate students.

Responsibilities

Responsibilities include: teaching and supervision at the undergraduate and graduate levels; contributing to the undergraduate and graduate programs, including responsibilities to curriculum development/expansion, as appropriate; establishing and maintaining a strong, community-engaged research agenda; and participating in the academic life of the Department of Criminology, the Faculty and the University.

Qualifications

The successful candidate will hold a PhD in Criminology or in a field related to social justice (or should expect to do so by July 1, 2019). Candidates must have developed a research profile (e.g., evidence of an emerging scholarly record that demonstrates creativity and evidence of impact, such as peer reviewed publications, book chapters and other similar contributions, the ability to establish and maintain a community-engaged research program with a demonstrated commitment to knowledges and methodologies grounded in Indigenous worldviews), as well as provide evidence of high-quality teaching and student training including experience with course/curriculum review/development, and a capacity for collegial service. The successful candidate must be of Indigenous descent. With the Department’s rapid growth, as well as the Faculty of Arts’ growing Indigenous community, contributions to service and administration are valued and thus we look for candidates with the interest and capacity to contribute in this manner.

Equity at Ryerson

Ryerson University welcomes those who have demonstrated a commitment to upholding the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion and will assist us to expand our capacity for diversity in the broadest sense. In addition, to correct the conditions of disadvantage in employment in Canada, we encourage applications from members of groups that have been historically disadvantaged and marginalized, including First Nations, Metis and Inuit, Indigenous peoples of North America, racialized persons, persons with disabilities, and those who identify as women and/or 2SLGBTQ+.
