The University of Ottawa is hosting a 4 month- $25,000 USD Fulbright Canada Research Chair during the 2022-23 academic year.
Hosted jointly by the Institute of Indigenous Research and Studies and the Faculty of Education of the University of Ottawa, the Chairholder will collaborate on research activities related to Indigenous language revitalization and education, in partnership with First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities, colleagues, students, and organizations.
Together, the Institute and the Faculty of Education offer unique opportunities for collaborative research and knowledge mobilization. We are located within reach of Canada's federal government institutions as well as the headquarters of many Indigenous organizations and therefore, our faculty and staff engage in ongoing conversations and collaborations on issues such as Indigenous education and research. This is particularly important given the significant Indigenous population residing in Ottawa.
The Chairholder will be expected to contribute to the activities of the Institute and the Faculty of Education by conducting seminars, participating in guest lectures, meeting with graduate students, contributing to ongoing research initiatives, connecting with local Indigenous communities, and developing partnerships in the area of Indigenous education to share different customs.
Most of the scholar's time will be spent on supporting faculty research initiatives as an active member of a project team. Please note that preference will be given to Indigenous researchers.
Specializations: Indigenous education, educational policy, teacher education, Indigenous children and youth, Indigenous health and well-being, community development, Indigenous language revitalization, Indigenous pedagogies, land-based, transsystemic knowledge systems, oral history education, Indigenous research methodologies and theoretical frameworks.
The deadline to apply is Sept. 15, 2021.
