The successful candidate may work on Indigenous issues in a range of settings and geographical locations and will have an ability to set this work within a comparative and relational framework, with an understanding of Aboriginal/Indigenous issues in Canada strongly preferred. We are especially interested in intersectional research that grapples with gender, race, class, sexuality, religion and other important differences, research which draws on or is in conversation with critical transnational, diasporic, and post- and anti-colonial feminist scholarship. Candidates may apply from any disciplinary or interdisciplinary background. We particularly welcome applications from scholars with a commitment to community-based research and to working directly with Aboriginal/Indigenous communities, and an engagement with Indigenous methodologies, including storytelling and arts-based methodologies.

WGSI at the University of Toronto includes undergraduate and graduate programs, including a new Ph.D. program ( WGSI adopts a transnational approach to women and gender studies, an approach which speaks both to the distinctively global character of the city of Toronto, but also to anti- and post-colonial and transnational contexts throughout the world. The transnational perspective explores the global processes in which women’s and men’s lives, gender relations, gendered subjectivities and sexualities are situated. In particular, WGSI has distinctive strengths in the following five fields: (1) feminist anti- and post-colonial, diasporic and transnational studies; (2) gender, sexuality and queer studies; (3) cultural studies; (4) feminist studies of technology, science, environment and biomedicine; and (5) transnational political economy and development studies. WGSI is devoted to creative, conceptual and empirical research; critical pedagogy; collaborations with a broad group of affiliated faculty; and projects developed with a wide ranging collection of communities and other social justice actors.
