The University of North Dakota, College of Arts & Sciences, Department of American Indian Studies invites applications for a full-time, non-tenure track, Instructor with interests in American Indian Perspectives on the Environment, to include Environmental Science/Studies, Environmental Justice, and/or Environmental Health and Well-Being. Preference is for those who have successfully developed and implemented high-impact teaching practices and who have experience teaching in and/or working with tribal nations.

Created in 1977, the Department of American Indian Studies is the only academic unit in the North Dakota University System that offers a Bachelor’s degree in American Indian Studies. Students who want to graduate with a major or minor in Indian Studies take courses on historic and contemporary Native American societies. They also explore theoretical concepts pertaining to these indigenous societies, and in comparison to the more dominant societies in North America. This position is to support an emerging curricular link in the area of American Indian Perspectives on the Environment with ties to the B.A. and B.S. programs in Environmental Studies.

The position is Instructor, American Indian Studies, Position #13797.  View more information about this vacancy.

We provide publishing support for U.S. Geological Survey authors in a large part of the country, from New Mexico to Florida, and are located in Lafayette, Louisiana at the Wetlands and Aquatic Research Center on Cajundome Blvd. A great draw of our reports are map figures that show everything from site locations to trends, all GIS based but pulled into Adobe Illustrator for finessing as publishable figures. Although authors do the GIS work, our group does the finessing.

We believe that a student of geography specializing in GIS would be a great person to train as an illustrator for our reports. Such a process would begin with the student coming on board part time while finishing up their degree, then possibly becoming a permanent, Federal employee with time though there would be no guarantees as we are part of the Federal government and subject to hiring restrictions. Why a GIS student? Well, the GIS expertise would be of great value because sometimes authors need help on that end and we do more than finessing.

Below are examples of map figures; we do publish quite an assortment of other types of figures including graphs and cross sections. We believe that someone with a spatial tendency and eye for detail–along with our training–could master composition of all these types of figures.

The successful candidate will be expected to teach in all of the Department’s programs, including the professional Planning program.

The Department seeks to augment its expertise in urban studies, and thus is particularly interested in individuals undertaking research on topics such as the relationship between urban economic development and the changing social, cultural, racial, or gender landscapes within cities. Preference will be given to candidates who have demonstrated scientific engagement within communities in Canada and/or internationally.

The successful candidate will be expected to initiate a high quality, independent research program that is competitive for funding through Canada’s Tri-council Awards.

Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent degree completed at the start date of the appointment. The main criteria for selection are academic and teaching excellence. The successful candidate will provide evidence of high quality scholarly output that demonstrates potential for independent research leading to peer assessed publications and the securing of external research funding, as well as strong potential for outstanding teaching contributions at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and an ongoing commitment to academic and pedagogical excellence in support of the department’s programs. Post Ph.D. experience involving undergraduate and graduate supervision and teaching is considered a strong asset. Candidates must provide evidence of an ability to work collaboratively in an interdisciplinary and student-centred environment. The successful candidate will be required to make substantive contributions through service to the department, the Faculty, the University, and/or the broader community. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Applicants need not identify their country of origin or citizenship; however, all applications must include one of the following statements: “I am a Canadian citizen / permanent resident of Canada”; OR, “I am not a Canadian citizen / permanent resident of Canada”.
