Associate Professor or Professor (with tenure) in Critical Perspectives in Arts-Based Educational Research

Situated on the unceded, ancestral and traditional territory of the hənqəminəm-speaking xwmə0kwəyəm (Musqueam people), the Department of Language and Literacy Education (LLED) in the Faculty of Education at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver invites applications for a Associate or Full Professor with tenure in Critical Perspectives in Arts-Based Educational Research.

This position will build on the Faculty of Education and UBC’s leadership in fields such as a/r/tography, autoethnography, research-based theatre, poetic and narrative Inquiry, performative inquiry, digital arts-based research, applied within music, visual arts, media arts and design, movement and dance, drama and theatre, and across many genres of creative writing and scholarship, particularly as these apply to the need for embedding equity and diversity through creative practices in K-12 education, teacher education, and social sciences of education. This position may be offered as a joint appointment with the FTE equally split between EDCP and LLED, or, depending on the successful candidate’s research focus, as a regular fulltime appointment in EDCP or in LLED, with expectations to collaborate with the other unit. This position is expected to commence July 1, 2022 (or as negotiated with the successful candidate).
