Research Officer | Localization of knowledge on refugee and forced migration in the global South | A joint initiative by IDRC, LERRN and Carleton University

Overview:
The Research Officer will provide research and administrative support for a small team that will identify how best to provide sustainable support to knowledge ecosystems in the global South to provide research, training and public and policy engagement on issues relating to refugees and forced migration. The position is based at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, working under the supervision of Dr. James Milner, Project Director of LERRN: The Local Engagement Refugee Research Network.

Position duration: 12 months

Start date: Negotiable, but preferably by 15 September 2019

Salary for 12 months (2019/20): C$51,000 plus benefits

Application deadline: 5 August 2019

Context:
80% of the world’s refugees are hosted in low and middle-income countries in the global South. The average duration of a refugee situation is now 20 years. The combination of these realities poses particular challenges for major refugee hosting countries. While global policy responses have been developed, including through the Global Compact on Refugees affirmed by the UN General Assembly in December 2018, responses to specific refugee situations require highly localized and context-specific knowledge to support the development and implementation of context-specific responses.

Despite the need for such knowledge, and the concentration of refugees in the global South, the vast majority of research capacity on refugee and forced migration issues remains in research centres in the global North. Given this imbalance in research capacity and given the critical importance of research capacity in the global South to support effective responses, it is critical to develop and sustain localized research capacity on refugee issues in major refugee-hosting regions in the global South.

Objectives:
In response to this challenge, the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), LERRN and Carleton University have launched a year-long initiative to build upon the existing knowledge infrastructure in the global South to identify how best to establish viable and sustainable ecosystems to: produce localized, policy-relevant research on solutions for refugees; foster dialogue among researchers, policy actors and practitioners; foster localized research capacity; and, promote South-South dialogue and amplify local perspectives into global arenas.

The long-term objectives of this initiative are to contribute to enhanced knowledge, improved solutions for refugees and sustainable capacity to contribute to more localized approaches to refugee research, policy and practice that reflect and address local political, economic and social dynamics.

Phases:
Phase one of the project (September 2019 to January 2020) will map research capacity in regions in the global South most affected by recurring and protracted instances of large-scale forced migration but lacking in influential and sustained knowledge ecosystems.

Phase two of the project (January to September 2020) will include field visits to priority regions identified in the mapping phase. These field visits will drill-down into local conditions, needs and capacities. Results from fieldwork will provide the basis for a proposal for regionally-appropriate knowledge ecosystems that build on existing capacity to generate localized, multi-sectoral and interdisciplinary knowledge, and support sustained, evidence-based discussions that link research, policy and practice in each region.

Responsibilities:
Based in the LERRN Secretariat at Carleton University and working under the supervision of the Project Director, the Research Officer will:
· Prepare a literature review on the political economy of knowledge production in refugee and forced migration studies and similar areas of South-North research collaboration;
· Prepare a mapping of research centres in the global South, including a list of activities and an index of sustainability and impact;
· Conduct remote interviews of past and current directors of research centres in the global South to identify factors contributing to sustainability and impact;
· Prepare an interim report on the determinacies of sustainability and impact of refugee and forced migration research centres in the global South;
· Conduct a mapping exercise of existing research capacities in major refugee hosting regions that currently lack established knowledge hubs on refugee and forced migration issues;
· Establish contact with partners in the regions to support field visits;
· Undertake field visits to each region to consult with local actors and stakeholders to develop proposals on configurations, terms of reference and costed models for a knowledge hub;
· Co-author (with Consultants and Project Director) a report on findings from the field visits and present findings to global stakeholders to obtain feedback and strategic direction;
· Prepare (with Consultants and Project Director) a proposal for longer-term support for regions of the global South, including activities to be supported, the business plan, indicators of success and pathways to sustainability; and,
· Co-author (with Project Director), and support to publication, a scholarly product to communicate the results of the project to the refugee and forced migration studies community.

Requirements:
The successful candidate will have:
· A completed PhD (or equivalent) or be very near completion of a PhD (or equivalent) in refugee and forced migration studies, or related field, with a focus on the global South;
· Experience collaborating with research centres in the global South;
· Experience working independently, in cross-cultural contexts, and in a dynamic research team environment;
· Experience in writing funding proposals for multi-year projects; and,
· Experience working in both English and one of the following languages: Arabic, French, or Spanish.

Preference will be given to candidates who have experience contributing to the administration and programming of a research centre.

Application process: To apply, please send the following electronically to Dr. James Milner (James.Milner@carleton.ca) with the subject line “Research Officer Application” by 5 August 2019:
· Cover letter
· CV
· Writing sample relevant to the position
· Names of three reference (only references of short-listed candidates will be contacted)

Short-listed candidates will be contacted by 9 August 2019 to arrange an interview by Skype.

Applicants selected for an interview are asked to contact Dr. James Milner as soon as possible to discuss any accommodation requirements. Arrangements will be made in a timely manner.

Research Officer position: Carleton University (Deadline: 5 August 2019)

Research Officer
Localization of knowledge on refugee and forced migration in the global South
A joint initiative by IDRC, LERRN and Carleton University

Overview:
The Research Officer will provide research and administrative support for a small team that will identify how best to provide sustainable support to knowledge ecosystems in the global South to provide research, training and public and policy engagement on issues relating to refugees and forced migration. The position is based at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, working under the supervision of Dr. James Milner, Project Director of LERRN: The Local Engagement Refugee Research Network.

Position duration: 12 months

Start date: Negotiable, but preferably by 15 September 2019

Salary for 12 months (2019/20): C$51,000 plus benefits

Application deadline: 5 August 2019

Context:
80% of the world’s refugees are hosted in low and middle-income countries in the global South. The average duration of a refugee situation is now 20 years. The combination of these realities poses particular challenges for major refugee hosting countries. While global policy responses have been developed, including through the Global Compact on Refugees affirmed by the UN General Assembly in December 2018, responses to specific refugee situations require highly localized and context-specific knowledge to support the development and implementation of context-specific responses.

Despite the need for such knowledge, and the concentration of refugees in the global South, the vast majority of research capacity on refugee and forced migration issues remains in research centres in the global North. Given this imbalance in research capacity and given the critical importance of research capacity in the global South to support effective responses, it is critical to develop and sustain localized research capacity on refugee issues in major refugee-hosting regions in the global South.

Objectives:
In response to this challenge, the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), LERRN and Carleton University have launched a year-long initiative to build upon the existing knowledge infrastructure in the global South to identify how best to establish viable and sustainable ecosystems to: produce localized, policy-relevant research on solutions for refugees; foster dialogue among researchers, policy actors and practitioners; foster localized research capacity; and, promote South-South dialogue and amplify local perspectives into global arenas.

The long-term objectives of this initiative are to contribute to enhanced knowledge, improved solutions for refugees and sustainable capacity to contribute to more localized approaches to refugee research, policy and practice that reflect and address local political, economic and social dynamics.

Phases:
Phase one of the project (September 2019 to January 2020) will map research capacity in regions in the global South most affected by recurring and protracted instances of large-scale forced migration but lacking in influential and sustained knowledge ecosystems.

Phase two of the project (January to September 2020) will include field visits to priority regions identified in the mapping phase. These field visits will drill-down into local conditions, needs and capacities. Results from fieldwork will provide the basis for a proposal for regionally-appropriate knowledge ecosystems that build on existing capacity to generate localized, multi-sectoral and interdisciplinary knowledge, and support sustained, evidence-based discussions that link research, policy and practice in each region.

Responsibilities:
Based in the LERRN Secretariat at Carleton University and working under the supervision of the Project Director, the Research Officer will:
·         Prepare a literature review on the political economy of knowledge production in refugee and forced migration studies and similar areas of South-North research collaboration;
·         Prepare a mapping of research centres in the global South, including a list of activities and an index of sustainability and impact;
·         Conduct remote interviews of past and current directors of research centres in the global South to identify factors contributing to sustainability and impact;
·         Prepare an interim report on the determinacies of sustainability and impact of refugee and forced migration research centres in the global South;
·         Conduct a mapping exercise of existing research capacities in major refugee hosting regions that currently lack established knowledge hubs on refugee and forced migration issues;
·         Establish contact with partners in the regions to support field visits;
·         Undertake field visits to each region to consult with local actors and stakeholders to develop proposals on configurations, terms of reference and costed models for a knowledge hub;
·         Co-author (with Consultants and Project Director) a report on findings from the field visits and present findings to global stakeholders to obtain feedback and strategic direction;
·         Prepare (with Consultants and Project Director) a proposal for longer-term support for regions of the global South, including activities to be supported, the business plan, indicators of success and pathways to sustainability; and,
·         Co-author (with Project Director), and support to publication, a scholarly product to communicate the results of the project to the refugee and forced migration studies community.

Requirements:
The successful candidate will have:
· A completed PhD (or equivalent) or be very near completion of a PhD (or equivalent) in refugee and forced migration studies, or related field, with a focus on the global South;
· Experience collaborating with research centres in the global South;
·         Experience working independently, in cross-cultural contexts, and in a dynamic research team environment;
· Experience in writing funding proposals for multi-year projects; and,
· Experience working in both English and one of the following languages: Arabic, French, or Spanish.

Preference will be given to candidates who have experience contributing to the administration and programming of a research centre.

Application process: To apply, please send the following electronically to Dr. James Milner (James.Milner@carleton.ca) with the subject line “Research Officer Application” by 5 August 2019:
·         Cover letter
·         CV
·         Writing sample relevant to the position
·         Names of three reference (only references of short-listed candidates will be contacted)

Short-listed candidates will be contacted by 9 August 2019 to arrange an interview by Skype.

Applicants selected for an interview are asked to contact Dr. James Milner as soon as possible to discuss any accommodation requirements. Arrangements will be made in a timely manner.

Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Global Refugee Policy

Faculty of Public Affairs
Carleton University
Ottawa, Canada

Description
The Faculty of Public Affairs at Carleton University brings together diverse academic units that work to address regional and global challenges with the aim of fostering informed citizenship and building better societies. Our research and teaching engages with fields such as politics, media and communications, economics, international relations, and law, and seeks to forge solutions to some of society’s greatest challenges. For example, the Faculty is actively engaged in a range of research and teaching initiatives at Carleton University that relate to refugee and migration policy and practice.

This Post-Doctoral Fellowship offers the opportunity to actively engage with a number of these initiatives, while conducting independent research in the area of global refugee policy. The Fellowship is ideally suited to an early-career researcher who wishes to pursue a research career at the intersection of global refugee research, policy and practice.

The Fellow will work directly with Dr. James Milner, Associate Professor of Political Science and Project Director of LERRN: The Local Engagement Refugee Research Network, along with other members of the LERRN team. LERRN is seven-year initiative funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).

LERRN is a team of researchers and practitioners committed to promoting protection and solutions with and for refugees. Their goal is to ensure that refugee research, policy and practice are shaped by a more inclusive, equitable and informed collective engagement of civil society. Through collaborative research, training, and knowledge-sharing, LERRN aims to improve the functioning of the global refugee regime and ensure more timely protection and rights-based solutions for refugees. Their work is focused in the global South, which hosts 85% of the world’s refugees, and responds to the needs and opportunities identified by LERRN’s partners in major refugee-hosting countries.

A specific research focus of LERRN is to understand the everyday politics of the global refugee regime as illustrated by efforts to implement global refugee policy in diverse local contexts. Building from recent scholarship on global refugee policy and understandings of expressions and experiences of power in the global refugee regime, LERRN is examining distinct efforts to implement specific examples of global refugee policy in Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon and Tanzania.

This Fellowship will enable an emerging research leader in the area of refugee policy and politics to develop their own research agenda in the area of global refugee policy. We are especially interested in Fellowship applicants who present an independent research project that seeks to explain variation in the implementation of global refugee policy across contexts, and who can then translate these findings into both high impact research publications as well as forms that are useable by the policy and practitioner communities, while also contributing to LERRN’s knowledge mobilization activities and impact.

More specifically, the Fellow will:

1. Design and implement an independent comparative research project on the implementation of global refugee policy in East Africa and/or the Middle East, ideally in collaboration with LERRN’s partners

2. Produce high-impact research publications as well as contribute to LERRN’s knowledge dissemination to policy and practitioner communities

3. Contribute to the development of  linkages between LERRN and related initiatives at Carleton University by organizing an annual research exchange workshop

4. Leverage existing capacities to identify new research partnership opportunities

5. Provide mentorship to graduate students engaged in LERRN research

6. Contribute to the training of undergraduate students in the field, including by teaching PSCI3608: Migration Governance in Winter 2020 and Winter 2021

Requirements: The successful candidate will have:

1. A completed PhD (or equivalent) or be very near completion of a PhD (or equivalent) at the time of application in a field relevant to the research focus of the Fellowship. (Note that the second year of funding would normally be revoked without successful thesis defense before the end of the first 12 months of the Fellowship being held. In the case of an applicant who has already completed a PhD (or equivalent), the relevant degree must have been completed within five years of the start of the award.)

2. A research and publication track-record directly relevant to research focus of the Fellowship and appropriate for the stage in the applicant’s career

3. Experience working independently, in cross-cultural contexts, and in a dynamic research team environment

4. Experience with innovative forms of knowledge translation and mobilization, particularly with the policy and practitioner communities

5. Experience teaching undergraduate students

Preference will be given to candidates with previous research and/or work experience in East Africa and/or the Middle East.

Award duration: 24 months

Start date: Negotiable, but preferably by 1 October 2019

Home unit: Department of Political Science, Carleton University, Ottawa

Salary for 2019/20: C$45,000 plus benefits (see Article 27 of PSAC local 77000 collective agreement with Carleton University). Increases in subsequent years will follow the collective agreement.

Relocation expenses: Eligible moving expenses of up to C$1,500 will be reimbursed.

Research funding: The Fellow will have access to a research fund of up to C$5,000 in each year for which the Fellowship is held.

Senior Coordinator, GBV Building Leadership Capacity Project (Internal/External Posting) | Employer: OCASI | Job city: Toronto
Application Deadline: June 7, 2019, 5:00 p.m. | Job terms: Full-time

About OCASI:
The Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants (OCASI) acts as a collective voice for immigrant and refugee-serving organizations and coordinates response to shared needs and concerns. OCASI is a registered charity governed by a volunteer board of directors. OCASI’s membership is comprised of over 240 community-based organizations in Ontario.

POSITION SUMMARY:
The Building Leadership Capacity to Address Gender-Based Violence against Non-Status, Refugee, and Immigrant (NSRI) Women across Canada project is led by the Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants (OCASI) in partnership with multiple civil society organizations working across not-for-profit, education, and grassroots community-based sectors and regions in Canada to address Gender-Based Violence (GBV).

The primary objective of this national project is to build the leadership capacity of NSRI women to shape and inform policies and services addressing GBV. We recognize that NSRI women constitute a diverse group with intersecting identities across race, ethnicity, class, age, sexuality, gender identity, ability, etc. At the same time, there are structural barriers that NSRI women have in common, which impact their access to safety, healing, and freedom from GBV. Our approach engages NSRI women as leaders in developing solutions to GBV – solutions that address structural barriers while accounting for the diversity of NSRI women’s experiences and communities. To develop the leadership capacity of NSRI women, our project combines two promising practices currently being developed by our project partners:

A peer champions program that uses popular education to build leadership capacity and foster connections between NSRI women

A community advocacy network (CAN) strategy, which establishes grassroots networks among NSRI survivors, service providers, and other civil society leaders, in order to build community capacity for developing survivor-led, evidence-based solutions to GBV

The purpose of the position is to provide leadership, project management, and support the coordination of all OCASI activities relating to GBV, and to ensure the sector has the necessary strategies and tools to eliminate GBV through the development of resources and strategic partnerships within and outside the immigrant-serving sector.

Develop and implement strategies to encourage and obtain stakeholder involvement and partnership development across sectors and regions across Canada

Facilitate planning sessions, focus groups, advisory meetings to gather feedback and collect information needed to develop, implement, and evaluate projects
Provide implementation support, monitoring, and evaluation to identify needs, implementation challenges, develop solutions, and document lessons learned;
Prepare presentations and research reports to disseminate findings and lessons learned at workshops, conferences, and other publications;
Work with project partners, content experts, and consultants to develop curricula on topics related to GBV issues in educational formats that are accessible to the peer champions and community advisory networks
Deliver on-line and in-person and GBV trainings to service providers and NSRI women
Develop and maintain on-line GBV resources

Fostering Latin America’s Next Generation of Feminist Leaders
With the goal of supporting the next generation of feminist activists in Latin America, the Open Society Foundations’ Youth Exchange and Women’s Rights Program are joining together to create the Young Feminist Leaders Fellowship.

The Young Feminist Leaders Fellowships will support dynamic youth activists, aged 22 to 30 and based in Latin America, who want to launch a project of their own design to foster a more just, inclusive, accessible, democratic, and feminist future for Latin America. Successful projects will reflect on the upcoming 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, address current realities, and propose a specific and detailed idea for advancing women’s rights and gender justice.

This 12-month fellowship program explicitly recognizes the threats of discrimination to an open society and seeks to create a leadership pipeline to promote young people who have personal, direct experiences with interpersonal and institutional prejudice.

The Young Feminist Leaders Fellowships for 2019 will offer five to seven fellowships. All of these fellowships will require collaboration with one of the following partner organizations:

the Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID)
El Instituto de Liderazgo Simone de Beauvoir (The Leadership Institute of Simone de Beauvoir- ILSB)
the Equipo Latinoamericano de Justicia y Género (The Latin American Team of Justice and Gender- ELA)
Eligibility Criteria
Applicants must be between 22 and 30 years of age at the start of the fellowship. Applicants must also be based in Latin America and demonstrate proficiency in English, Spanish, and/or Portuguese. Furthermore, applicants should also be at the early stages of their careers and want to learn more about how to increase their effectiveness as an activist and organizer around issues of gender justice and equality across movements. Applicants should have demonstrated experience in community organizing or activism on a local, national, or regional level.

Applicants who are directly affected by or have direct lived experience of the challenges, policies, practices, acute forms of discrimination, and systems that perpetuate dominant narratives or identity-based stereotypes are strongly encouraged to apply. We are looking for candidates who have not had easy access to existing leadership pipelines but are eager to seize an opportunity for growth and development.

Successful candidates will be required to partner with a host organization for the 12-month duration of the fellowship. Fellowship projects can be full-time (minimum of 35 hours/week) or part-time (20 hours/week).

Ineligibility Criteria
Young Feminist Leaders Fellowships do not fund the following:

Enrollment in an academic institution for degree or non-degree study, including dissertation research. However, candidates who apply for a part-time fellowship may continue their academic studies on their personal time. Lobbying. Please carefully review our Tax Law Lobbying Rules before submitting an application. If awarded a fellowship, applicants must agree to refrain from engaging in restricted lobbying activities during the term of the fellowship.

Current employees of Open Society Foundations, the Association for Women’s Rights in Development, El Instituto de Liderazgo Simone de Beauvoir (The Leadership Institute of Simone de Beauvoir), and the Equipo Latinoamericano de Justicia y Género (The Latin American Team of Justice and Gender) are not eligible to apply.

PhD position in Diversity and Political Representation - University of Amsterdam
Publication date 16 April 2019
Closing date 24 May 2019

Level of education Master's degree
Hours 30,4 to 38 hours per week
Salary indication €2,325 to €2,972 gross per month, based on 38 hours per week
Vacancy number 19-244
The Department of Political Science at the University of Amsterdam invites applications for a 3.5-year PhD position.

The position is part of the research project 'Misrepresenting Diversity? How personal identities clash with ethnic pigeonholing in politics', led by dr Liza Mügge and funded by the Dutch National Science Organisation (NWO). This PhD project is co-funded by the Germany Institute Amsterdam (DIA).

Project description
Ideally, democracies should accommodate the citizenry’s full diversity. This especially matters for structurally underrepresented people, such as ethnic minorities with a migration background. Misrepresenting Diversity? provides a bottom-up analysis of the mechanisms that drive representation in ethnically diverse societies. It empirically investigates how citizens and politicians themselves experience diversity in politics and fill it with life. It reverses the usual telescope: instead of assuming that we can read people’s identities from their birth certificates, it researches how and with whom politicians and citizens identify, and how they give meaning to their backgrounds. Real-world representation has a strong collective dimension: individuals do not form opinions about failed or successful representation in isolation, but in conversation with others – neighbours, colleagues, family members, etc.

The PhD candidate will focus on minority citizens’ collective experience and expectations of representation in the Dutch, French and German parliaments. The aim is to reveal bottom-up experience of representation of ethnic minority groups and how this is mediated by their personal characteristics and identity. It asks: How do minority citizens collectively assess group representation? How do they define relevant groups in representational politics? The findings will show whether, and if so how, citizens believe that direct representation by politicians who are 'like them' matters.

It will use focus groups to study collective expectations that emerge out of participant discussions. Focus groups will be held in capital city neighborhoods with a high concentration of minority citizens. The project will establish how citizens delimit politically relevant groups and identities. How much does it matter to have an MP who 'looks like them'? And why (not)? How do they evaluate sitting MPs? What would representation ideally look like according to them?

What will you be doing?

The successful candidate will be expected to have a high level of competence and motivation to undertake the following tasks:

complete a PhD thesis within the official appointment duration;
develop and coordinate focus group interviews in three cities;
contribute (both as sole author and as co-author) to writing research papers to be submitted to academic journals;
regularly present intermediate research results at the UvA and at international workshops and conferences;
contribute to the organisation of research activities and events of the project, such as conferences, workshops and joint publications;
participate in the AISSR and DIA PhD programme, including attendance of courses
What do we require of you?

You:

have obtained a (research) master’s degree in a field relevant to the theme of the research;
are a person with initiative, excellent communication skills, the ability to work independently as well as in a team and move easily between international contexts;
have well-developed analytical skills as well as creativity and perseverance;
possess good academic writing and presentation skills;
can demonstrate a strong interest in the topic of this PhD project;
are familiar with (some of the) academic literatures relevant to the project;
have excellent qualitative methodological skills, particularly focus group interviews, or are willing and able to acquire these skills;
have proven organizational skills to train and lead a team with student assistants;
are able to collaborate in a team with mixed method and/or quantitative scholars;
are able to communicate effectively in English both orally and in writing;
ideally have basic knowledge of one other language than English (e.g. German, French, Arabic, Turkish);
have a strong interest in pursuing an academic career.
What can we offer you?

A challenging work environment with a variety of duties and ample scope for individual initiative and development within an inspiring organisation. To work at the University of Amsterdam and the Germany Institute Amsterdam (DIA) is to work in a discerning, independent, creative, innovative and international climate characterised by an open atmosphere and a genuine engagement with the city of Amsterdam and society. The social and behavioural sciences play a leading role in addressing the major societal challenges faced by the world, the Netherlands and Amsterdam, now and in the future.

Tenure-Track Position - Indigenous Sociology
Job Title Assistant Professor, Indigenous Sociology
Mount Royal University, Calgary
Requisition # 997430
Job Type Permanent (for any group)
Closing Date: 3/15/2019

About MRU
Founded in 1910 and located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Mount Royal University grew into a vibrant college in the 1930s and became a mid-sized university in 2009. Mount Royal has carved out a distinct niche by offering smaller class sizes, a robust liberal education and unique undergraduate programs. Currently, nearly 14,000 credit students choose from 12 bachelor degrees and 32 majors.

About the Faculty of Arts
The Faculty of Arts houses the following departments: Economics, Justice & Policy Studies, English, Languages & Cultures, Humanities, Interior Design, Psychology, and Sociology & Anthropology. It currently offers the following degrees: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Arts—Criminal Justice, and Bachelor of Interior Design.

The Department of Sociology & Anthropology currently offers Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Arts Honours degree programs with majors in Sociology and Anthropology as well as minors in both disciplines.

About the Role
The Department of Sociology & Anthropology in the Faculty of Arts at Mount Royal University (Calgary) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Indigenous sociology at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning July 1, 2019, subject to budgetary approval. Sociology at Mount Royal focuses on power and social inequality, social justice, oppression and resistance, and intersectionality. We seek a candidate who can contribute from an Indigenous sociological perspective to one or more of those areas. In addition to teaching existing junior and senior level courses, the successful person will also develop new courses in the department, focusing on critical Indigenous content, theories, and/or methodologies.

New faculty are hired into one of two work patterns. The teaching/ scholarship/ service pattern (TSS) has a focus on teaching with the requirement that the faculty member be involved in a research program as well as service to the Mount Royal community. The teaching/ service pattern (TS) has a focus on teaching and service only. The successful candidate will be hired into either the teaching/ service pattern (TS) or the teaching/ scholarship/ service pattern (TSS). There is an option to change work patterns after tenure. The successful applicant must be qualified to teach introductory courses as well as senior courses in sociology and be involved in course and program development in Indigenous sociology.

Those hired into the research stream will have a record of demonstrated commitment or promise in research, and all candidates will be expected to teach Indigenous content from a sociological perspective, broadly defined.

The Department welcomes candidates with diverse backgrounds and experiences who are interested in building connections with Indigenous students and communities. Preference will be given to qualified Indigenous candidates. Additional preference will be given to Indigenous scholars from Canada, but international Indigenous scholars are also encouraged to apply.

Candidates will also be encouraged to teach courses in General Education, Cluster-Three: Community and Society. The Department of General Education is responsible for the development and delivery of the liberal education component of all Mount Royal University undergraduate degree programs and offers required foundational first-year courses and a number of upper-level courses.

Applicants will have a doctoral degree in sociology or cognate discipline. Applicants who have progressed to the point where completion of the Ph.D. is near and who demonstrate clear promise of excellent research and/or teaching will be considered and are encouraged to apply. We will also consider applicants with a Master’s degree in sociology or cognate discipline at the time of appointment who have significant experience working with Indigenous students and/or communities. Applicants interested in the teaching/ scholarship/ service pattern should have the ability and intent to pursue a research program.

We are proud to announce that this position is part of a cluster hire of tenure-track and tenured positions as part of MRU's commitment to Indigenous communities and in order to advance the University’s Indigenous Strategic Plan. Mount Royal University is committed to doing its part to address the legacy of broken promises and rebuild the relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Peoples in Calgary and across the country.

For more information on our Department, please visit:

http://www.mtroyal.ca/ProgramsCourses/FacultiesSchoolsCentres/Arts/Departments/SociologyAnthropology/index.htm

If you have questions regarding the position, contact Tom Buchanan, Chair, Department of Sociology & Anthropology at (403) 440-8774 or tbuchanan@mtroyal.ca.

Closing Date: March 15, 2019

We ask interested individuals who meet the requirements to submit the following by March 15, 2019:

A complete dossier should be submitted including a cover letter describing their interest in the position and fit with the department, explicitly stating which stream (TS or TSS) the candidate is applying for, curriculum vitae, names and contact information for three references (minimum 2 academic referees but community-based referees are also welcome), 1-2 page teaching statement accompanied by evidence of teaching effectiveness, and, 1-2 page research statement accompanied by a recent research publication (if applying for TSS).

After the close date, you can check on the status of your application through your Career Centre. New career opportunities arise frequently and are posted as they become available. Please check back often to view our latest postings on our Career Opportunities page. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. Mount Royal University hires on the basis of merit and is strongly committed to fostering diversity as a source of excellence, intellectual and cultural enrichment, and social strength. We welcome applications from those who would contribute to the further diversification of our staff, faculty and their scholarship including but not limited to Indigenous Peoples, women, persons with disabilities and persons of any sexual or gender identity, ethnic, national or socio-economic background, religion or age.

EU Study Tour & Internship Opportunity

The EU Study Tour takes place annually in May, and over the course of three weeks students will visit Brussels, Luxembourg, Strasbourg and Frankfurt, key sites of European Union institutions and civil society organizations. Students will engage with representatives of the EU’s administrative and political leadership, such as the European Commission, Parliament, Court of Justice, and Central Bank, along with other European organizations such as NATO, the European Court of Human Rights, and the Canadian Mission to the EU. The Tour is not simply an accredited course, it is a full immersion into European history, culture, and political formation, a program for self-directed and independent study.

In addition to the Tour, a number of qualified participants are offered internship opportunities with EU institutions and other organizations following completion of the Tour. The 2019 internships are two months in duration, and are completed by the end of August, at the latest.

Participants on the 2019 Tour will arrive in Brussels by May 12th at the latest, and will be ready to depart on June 1st (unless they stay on for the internship). The cost of the Tour is $3450. This fee includes accommodations, internal travel within the EU and occasional meals. However, it does not include the cost of airfare to and from Europe, or most meals. There is an additional $600 fee for the internship placement.

(There is also a fee to register for the UVic course, but this is comparable to York tuition; the Tour should count for a 3-credit exchange course.)

York International has available funding for students who will be returning to York in September: $400 for the Tour plus an additional $600 for those completing the internship.

If you may be interested, please study the website, and contact prof. Willem Maas (maas@yorku.ca) afterwards...
