POSTING DETAILS

Posting Number: 160
Job Title: Assistant/ Associate Professor, Indigenous Studies
Is this a tenure track position? Yes
Position Status: Full-time
Position Summary: The Race, Ethnicity and Migration Studies (REM) program at Colorado College seeks a teacher/scholar in Indigenous Studies with a focus on North American or Pacific/Oceania populations to fill a tenure-track position.

While the successful candidate’s area of specialization will be Indigenous Studies with a focus on North American or Pacific/Oceania Studies, she or he will have a strong commitment to interdisciplinary teaching in a liberal arts setting. The duties of the position will include but not be limited to: teaching courses in his or her area of specialization; teaching introductory and core courses in the Native American Studies minor; teaching introductory and advanced courses that focus on the comparative study of racialization and diasporas; supervising student capstone projects and theses; cycling along with other members of the REM Core Faculty into the rotation of directing the program for a 3-year term.

Currently the program consists of 15 active and committed Core Faculty with appointments in other departments/programs and 1.5 tenure lines dedicated to the program. With this hire, there will be 2.5 tenure-track positions dedicated to the program. The program is at present a minor, but we are proposing that the College offer a major starting in the year 2016-17. The College is also considering a proposal for a Native American Studies minor. These developments are a result of Colorado College’s growing commitment to curricular diversity and a campus culture of inclusion. Hence, candidates who are similarly invested in increasing the diversity of the curriculum, faculty, and student body on our campus are particularly encouraged to apply. Candidates should also be committed to collaborating with student organizations on campus, colleagues in other programs/departments, and communities beyond campus.

More information about the program, including our Mission Statement, can be viewed at the Race, Ethnicity, and Migration Studies Program website

The Colorado College calendar, called the Block Plan, is a unique system in which professors teach, and students take, one course at a time for 3.5 weeks. An academic year includes eight blocks, including a half-block between the fall and spring, and full-time faculty members teach six blocks per year. For these reasons, the successful candidate will demonstrate a commitment to excellence in undergraduate liberal arts teaching and an active research program, as our intensive modular schedule is well suited for in-depth faculty-student interactions, including research collaborations.
Colorado College is an equal opportunity employer committed to increasing the diversity of its community. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age, religion, gender identity or expression, disability, or sexual orientation in our educational programs and activities or our employment practices.
