Tier 2 Canada Research Chair Iseechigehina Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Post-TRC Artistic and/or Curatorial Practices

The Faculty of Media, Art, and Performance at the University of Regina invites applications for a tenure-track/tenured position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level for the nomination of a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Post-TRC Artistic and/or Curatorial Practices commencing September 2019. The successful candidate will be an exceptional Indigenous emerging artist-researcher with strong connections to Indigenous communities, with an ability to bring those voices and ways of knowing/making into their teaching and research. We seek an artist and/or scholar with a critical curatorial and/or artistic background who will enhance the University of Regina’s growing reputation as an important centre of Indigenous art practices. The successful candidate will deepen the processes of knowing and knowing in performative, embodied, enacted, and curated ways of understanding the world thus fostering new knowledge.

A Canada Research Chair entails a reduced teaching load, research and salary stipends, as well as access to infrastructure grants for the duration of the five-year chair, renewable once, for a total of 10 years.

The successful candidate for the CRC position in Post-TRC Artistic and/or Curatorial Practices in the first instance, will be offered a conditional tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, as appropriate. The candidate will then work with the Faculty and the University to prepare the formal CRC nomination according to the CRC program guidelines. The University will submit the nomination to the CRC Secretariat at the earliest opportunity. All Chairs are subject to review and final approval by the CRC Secretariat.

Requirements:

The candidate should hold a PhD in a cognate field or an MFA. Applicants should possess evidence of strong creative output, publication, or curation; a record of service to the community; and ideally post-secondary teaching experience. The successful candidate for the CRC in Post-TRC Artistic and/or Curatorial Practices will be appointed to the Faculty of Media, Art, and Performance at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, and will teach in our undergraduate and graduate programs.

The ideal candidate will have an active creative and/or curatorial practice grounded in deep community engagement, using Indigenous knowledge in non-extractive ways. Evidence of the ability to build on existing research at the faculty level, coupled with the capability to establish a strong externally-funded research program is important. The potential to attract, mentor, and support exceptional graduate students is also essential. This chair will conduct research that addresses Indigenous themes/issues, and will be dedicated to the sustainability of art and culture in our society, as well as committed to social justice.

Tier 2 Chairs are intended for exceptional emerging scholars and/or artists with less than 10 years of active research in their field. Applicants who are more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree (and where career breaks exist, such as maternity, parental, extended sick leave or family care) may have their eligibility for a Tier 2 Chair assessed through the program’s Tier 2 justification process. 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: www/chairs-chaires.gc.ca/program-programme/admin_guide-eng.aspx
