Indigenous Scholarship and Teaching

The Faculty of Law invites applications for a full-time faculty member to enhance its scholarship and teaching in fields related to Indigenous and/or Aboriginal Law. This may include, but is not limited to, Indigenous legal traditions, constitutional law, property law, environmental law, international law, and human rights.

The appointment may be a probationary (tenure-track) appointment at the rank of assistant professor or a tenured appointment at the rank of associate professor or professor, depending on qualifications and experience. Candidates may also be considered for limited-term appointment, with rank to be determined by qualifications and experience.

Qualified applicants must have a JD, LLB or equivalent degree, as well as a relevant advanced graduate degree or equivalent. Western Law welcomes candidates with graduate degrees or research expertise in Law or other related fields, including Political Science, Sociology, History, Anthropology, or Geography.

Applicants may, if they wish, be considered for cross-appointment with First Nations Studies.

The appointment is expected to commence July 1, 2019, although alternative starting dates may be arranged. Review of applications will begin on Nov. 15, and applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
