Dartmouth College Department of Native American and Indigenous Studies Mae and John Hueston Distinguished Professorship

The property
The Department of Native American and Indigenous Studies at Dartmouth College invites applications for a tenured full (or associate) professor to begin July 1, 2022. The successful candidate will have a Ph. D. in Global Indigenous Studies or a related field, and expertise in global Indigenous studies. This is a newly endowed chair, designated as the Mae and John Hueston Distinguished Professorship in Native American and Indigenous Studies to support the study of Native American and global Indigenous Peoples. Specific areas of focus include, but are not limited to, Indigenous politics and sovereignty; law; economics; philosophy; kinship and social relations; transnational and/or migration studies; environmental and land management; gender studies and/or feminisms; and literature. In all contexts, we seek an established scholar whose academic training, scholarship and teaching are firmly grounded in global Indigenous studies.
Whether situated within or outside of the United States, qualified candidates must demonstrate expertise relating to the Native peoples of the US and to Indigenous Peoples in other regions of the world through comparative and/or international methods of study and inquiry. The successful candidate's work will complement but not duplicate existing areas of expertise within Native American and Indigenous Studies at Dartmouth. Effective classroom teaching is essential for this position. Dartmouth has a long-standing commitment to interdisciplinary studies and NAIS has long-established relations with other departments and units whose interests and activities in Indigenous studies intersect with our own.
Dartmouth is highly committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive population of students, faculty, and staff. We are especially interested in applicants who are able to work effectively with students, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds, including but not limited to: racial and ethnic minorities, women, individuals who identify with LGBTQ+ communities, individuals with disabilities, individuals from lower income backgrounds, and/or first-generation college graduates.

The NAISA logo was designed by Jonathan Thunder, a Red Lake Ojibwe painter and digital artist from Minnesota. NAISA members inspired by canoe traditions among their own people sent examples to Thunder, who designed the logo with advice from the NAISA Council. The color scheme was chosen to signify those Indigenous peoples who are more land-based and do not have canoe traditions.
