Indigenous Studies Research Initiative
Three Open Positions

Northwestern University is pleased to announce an Indigenous Studies Research Initiative. Our goal is to build a critical mass of scholars working in the field of Indigenous Studies broadly construed. It is our hope that through close alignment and coordination with other Chicago-area institutions, we will make Northwestern University, as well as greater Chicago, centers of research and learning in the important field of Native American and Indigenous Studies. Area resources include the D’Arcy McNickle Center for American Indian and Indigenous Studies at the Newberry Library, The American Indian Center of Chicago, and the Mitchell Museum of the American Indian in Evanston, among others.

As an initial step, we announce searches for two tenure-track faculty positions and one postdoctoral fellow. We anticipate that these new colleagues will join our current faculty in designing and offering courses for undergraduate and graduate students related to indigenous studies and in advancing research in fields across the College and University.
