The Department of American Indian Studies at the University of Washington seeks a full-time, tenure-track Assistant Professor of Indigenous Environmental and Sustainability Studies whose research and teaching engages American Indian and Indigenous Studies through the study of tribal ecosystems. Applicants should demonstrate training in Environmental and Sustainability Studies and be scholars of the ways Indigenous nations and communities understand their environments within their diverse cultures and epistemologies. We seek candidates who have experience working with tribal communities concerning issues such as health, wellness, food sovereignty, food security, water security, climate change, treaty rights, and environmental concerns as they relate to tribal ecosystems, and whose scholarship addresses the entangled relations among Indigenous nations; Indigenous communities; federal, state, and local governments; Western science; Indigenous cultural revitalization movements; and Indigenous knowledges.
