Theoretical or empirical contributions are welcomed, as are any geographical foci or transnational orientations, including global perspectives on Canada.

A PhD or near completion in Political Science or a related area is required, with a demonstrated record of excellence or promise of excellence in teaching, scholarly research and publication and service. Applicants should have a clearly articulated program of research in Black Politics.

The successful candidate will be expected to engage in outstanding, innovative, and, as appropriate, externally funded research.

Evidence of excellence or promise of excellence in teaching will be provided through a teaching philosophy and pedagogy statement, teaching accomplishments and pedagogical innovations, including in high priority areas such as experiential education and technology enhanced learning, teaching evaluations, and strong letters of reference.

The position will involve graduate teaching and supervision, as well as undergraduate teaching and the successful candidate must be suitable for prompt appointment to the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
