Sustainability Professor

The Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies at the University of British
Columbia, Okanagan Campus, invites applications for an appointment at the
rank of Professor in the area of sustainability in art and the humanities to
begin as soon as possible after January 1, 2012.

We are looking for an internationally renowned researcher who bridges
creative practice and theory, whose work explores the ethical, aesthetical,
and political dimensions of environmentalism and fosters a critical dialogue
on sustainability.  The individual should have a record of collaborative,
community-based creative practice and a record of critical experience and
publication in environmental humanities with an intersectional approach that
engages with questions of race, gender, sexuality, indigeneity, class,
ability, and species.  We welcome applications from researcher -artists who
demonstrate an engagement with indigenous epistemologies. The individual
should be able to lead research in both creative practice and critical
scholarly research and help develop a new interdisciplinary research centre
in environment, art, and humanities.

The Okanagan campus of UBC is located in Kelowna, British Columbia, one of
Canada¹s most ecologically diverse and threatened areas, in a place that
provides access to wilderness, agricultural, and urban-rural interface
zones.  The campus has significant resources in art-based environmental
practice, ecological research in the sciences, and indigenous studies.  The
Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies brings together traditional
disciplines related to the creation and analysis of art, and also offers
opportunities for interdisciplinary studies at the graduate and
undergraduate levels.  Its programs consist of English, French, Spanish,
German, Japanese, Art History, Cultural Studies, Creative Writing, Visual
Arts and Interdisciplinary Performance.

Minimum requirements are the terminal degree in the individual¹s discipline,
either a PhD or an MFA degree.  The individual should have post-secondary
teaching experience, a successful research record, and an international
reputation in creative practice and theory.  The successful candidate will
contribute to the development of a growing graduate program and be
interested in working in a multi-disciplinary environment.

Candidates must include with their letter of application:

    * curriculum vitae
    * a portfolio of examples of recent creative work (as digital files) and
theoretical publications.

Applicants should also arrange to have at least three confidential letters
of reference sent to Dr. Robert Eggleston, Associate Dean.   Teaching
evaluations and samples of student work would be useful to the committee.

This position is subject to funding.

Please send letters of application to:

Dr. Robert Eggleston
Associate Dean

Deadline for applications: CV¹s reviewed starting October 3, 2011

UBC hires on the basis of merit and is strongly committed to diversity
within its community and especially welcomes applications from women,
visible minority group members, Aboriginal persons, persons with
disabilities, persons of any sexual orientation or gender identity, and
others who may contribute to further diversification of ideas. However,
Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority.
