Who am I?
I am member of the Nisga’a Nation, my Nisga’a name is Nox Ayaa Wilt (Amy Parent) and I am from the House of Ni’isjoohl belonging to the Ganada (frog) Clan. On my father’s side, I am French and German. I am also a mother, sister and Aunty. My doctoral work inspired me to work with Aboriginal youth, communities, and research-intensive universities across British Columbia in order to identify proactive ways to transform Indigenous students’ transition to higher education. Much of my research is conducted in partnership with community organizations where I seek to build reciprocal relations between the university and B.C. Aboriginal communities. I have been a SAGE member for more than a decade and have been so appreciative of the mentorship, friendship and inspiration that I received from all the great people that I have met in the program. I am now an assistant professor in the Faculty of Education at Simon Fraser University. My research and teaching interests include: Aboriginal high school to university transitions, undergraduate to graduate transitions, Indigenous knowledge systems and methodologies, Indigenous doctoral programming and integrating Indigenous content into teacher education. I look forward to connecting with you soon!

Requisition Title: Assistant Professor – Gender and Indigeneity – 1301805
Job Field: Tenure Stream
Faculty / Division: Faculty of Arts and Science
Department: Women and Gender Studies Institute
Campus: St. George (downtown Toronto)
Job Posting: Nov 15, 2013
Job Closing: Jan 31, 2014 Open Until Filled
The Women and Gender Studies Institute (WGSI) at the University of Toronto invites applications for a tenure-stream appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor, with a focus on Gender and Indigeneity. The start date for the position will be July 1, 2014.
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.
Applicants will have the opportunity to work closely with, and cross-list courses in, relevant affiliated departments, including Aboriginal Studies, but also African Studies, Canadian Studies, Caribbean Studies, Centre for the Study of the U.S., East Asian Studies, and/or Latin American Studies, as well as other departments.
Situated on or near the traditional territories of various First Nations, including the Anishinabe, the Haudenosaunee, and the Huron-Wendat, faculty at WGSI recognize the transcolonial and transnational links that extend throughout the Americas, and elsewhere, and the Indigenous political, social and cultural issues that have given rise to international Indigenous rights and decolonization movements. WGSI at the University of Toronto includes undergraduate and graduate programs, including a new Ph.D. program (www.wgsi.utoronto.ca). 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.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. by date of appointment or shortly thereafter, with demonstrated excellence in teaching and research, and Indigenous community engagement. Duties consist of research and teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels. Salary will be commensurate with experience and qualifications.
All qualified candidates are invited to apply. Applications should include: a cover letter; curriculum vitae; statement outlining current and future research interests; one writing sample of no more than 50 pages; teaching dossier (including course outlines, and student evaluations, as well as a statement on teaching philosophy).
The UofT application system can accommodate up to five attachments (10 MB) per candidate profile; please combine attachments into one or two files in PDF/MS Word format. Submission guidelines can be found at: http://uoft.me/how-to-apply.
Applicants should also ask three referees to e-mail letters directly to the Director of WGSI at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 31, 2014.
We will begin reviewing applications on January 31, 2014, but will continue to accept applications until the position is filled.
If you have questions about this position, please contact the Director of WGSI at email@example.com.
