Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Indigenous-Settler Relations Search

The University of Victoria’s Faculty of Human and Social Development (HSD) invites applications for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Indigenous-Settler Relations (ISR CRC). The University stands on the traditional territory of the Lekwungen-speaking peoples, and the Songhees, Esquimalt, and WSÁNEĆ Peoples’ historical relationships with the land also continue to this day. Consistently ranked as one of Canada’s top comprehensive universities, we serve over 20,000 undergraduate and graduate students across ten Faculties and Divisions. Our Faculty is home to the Schools of Child and Youth Care, Health Information Science, Public Administration, Public Health and Social Policy, Social Work, Nursing, and Indigenous Governance programs with shared goals of quality professional programs, responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action, and community engaged research.

The ISR CRC-ECC will help establish UVic as a world-class leader in the creative use, and application, of Indigenous Knowledges and Decolonizing Methodologies to re-form relations between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people and strengthen the health and well-being of Indigenous Peoples and communities.
