The Centre for Global Studies supports critically-oriented and
interdisciplinary teaching and research, drawing from a very wide range of
scholarly questions, modes of inquiry, and sources. We welcome applicants
who have a Ph.D. or are in the final stages of completing a doctoral
program in disciplines or cross-disciplinary contexts from either the
humanities or social sciences, and we will look most favourably on those
applicants who have background in some form of interdisciplinary study and
research and who are interested in approaching their teaching as
interdisciplinary practice. While the degree modules in CGS are organised
into three streams of study (Globalization; Global Development; Global
Culture), it is not expected that any CGS faculty member isolate her- or
himself in any one stream but, rather, that she or he contributes to the
interplay between them. It is also hoped that applicants will be prepared
to draw significantly from their own research and professional experiences
in their teaching. For more information on the Centre for Global Studies,
please refer to our page on the Huron University College website:

To apply for this position, applicants are asked to submit the
following materials: a letter of application, in which the applicant
identifies the CGS courses she or he would be prepared to teach, the
strengths that she or he would bring to teaching these courses, and an
indication of how she or he would be able to contribute to the critical
and interdisciplinary pedagogical approaches supported in CGS; a current
curriculum vitae; and available teaching evaluations.
Applicants should also arrange to have three letters of reference
submitted independently. Review of applications will begin after January
31st, 2011 and will continue after that date until a decision to hire has
been made. Please send all application materials and letters of reference
to the Director of CGS, as follows:
