The Program in Ethnicity, Race, and Migration (ERM) seeks to appoint a tenure-track assistant professor in the field of Native American Studies. Candidates working on pressing questions of Indigenous Studies with emphasis upon Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander, and Alaskan Native communities are also encouraged to apply. Research areas relating to questions of Native American sovereignty, economic development, and education; Indigenous feminisms; Indigenous visual arts and performance studies; Indigenous environmental studies and food sovereignty movements; and geography, urbanization, and cartography would particularly complement the Program, as would scholars working in collaboration with Native nations. An interdisciplinary program, faculty in ERM work closely with a range of campus partners, including the Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration, the Native American Cultural Center, the Yale University Art Gallery; the Peabody Museum of Natural History; and various scholarly working groups. This appointment will be fully housed in the Program with an anticipated beginning in July, 2022.
