WSU PULLMAN CAMPUS
Faculty - Academic - Not OT Eligible
Summary of Duties:
The Department of Teaching and Learning at Washington State University Pullman campus seeks applicants with a demonstrated knowledge and ability to work effectively in Native American (Native) teacher preparation and/or Indigenous Education with an emphasis on Indigenous Knowledge Systems (IKS), place-based education, and experience working with Tribes in Washington, Idaho, Oregon, or Montana. The faculty's expertise and research interests would be situated within teacher preparation-specifically on Native American/Indigenous teacher preparation and helping prepare non-Native teachers and administrators to work with Native students in Tribal Compact Schools, Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) Tribally Controlled Grant Schools, BIE Contract Schools, or public/private schools serving Native American or Indigenous students. They would also provide guidance and expertise in helping public schools to implement state and Tribally designed curricula and provide leadership to WSU teacher education faculty in this endeavor. We envision this person's workload to be adjusted to reflect the emphasis on outreach to Tribes and schools, providing teaching expertise, directing and re-envisioning the Clearinghouse on Native Teaching & Learning, and collaborating with the Office of Tribal Relations and Native Programs. Less emphasis will be placed on research and publication and more emphasis on collaboration with Tribes and Tribal communities, schools, teaching, and service.
Located in the CSSTE - Cultural Studies and Social Thought in Education Program, which brings together diverse scholars committed to addressing issues of culture and power as they play out in contemporary and historical contexts of education and schooling, this position would add to our scholars and practitioners who work to initiate positive change in educational institutions and the communities they serve. A successful candidate will be able to make immediate contributions through their focus on Native American and Indigenous education, with a demonstrated commitment to examining and contributing to equity and justice in education while attending to the intersections of areas such as race, culture, sovereignty, gender identity, diverse abilities, economic inequalities, environmental justice, equitable educational opportunities, and systemic transformation.
WSU acknowledges that its locations statewide are on the homelands of Native American peoples, who have lived in this region and have been caretakers of the land from time immemorial. The Morrill Act of 1862 established our land-grant institution by providing public and federal lands that are traced back to the disposition of Indigenous lands, often taken by coercive and violent acts, and the disregard of treaties. For that, we extend our deepest apologies. We owe our deepest gratitude to the Native peoples of this region and maintain our commitment towards reconciliation. And as a land-grant institution, WSU is deeply committed to the land-grant mission, its Memorandums of Understanding with Native tribes in the region, and a tradition of service to society.
WSU is committed to building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive university community. The university recognizes that fostering an inclusive environment for all, with particular attention to the needs of historically marginalized populations, is vital to the pursuit of excellence in all aspects of our institutional mission. Towards continually strengthening this commitment, we seek candidates whose research, teaching, and/or service has prepared them to be an integral contributor to the continued advancement of inclusion, diversity, equity, and access here at WSU.
This position is part of a faculty cluster hire initiative in the scholarship and teaching about racism and social inequality in the Americas, with a particular focus this year on Native American/Indigenous communities. The university is particularly interested in hiring scholars who are deeply connected to and integrated into the communities that they study, to build on our strong tradition of engaged and applied scholarship at WSU.
Therefore, the CSSTE program seeks dynamic and innovative candidates with the potential to make a significant contribution to engaged and applied scholarship in the field of cultural studies in education and critical and/or social justice approaches to education. Candidates must be able to contribute to graduate and undergraduate programs in education by teaching, conducting relevant research, assuming service responsibilities, advising students, and chairing doctoral students' committees. Candidates should have scholarly and teaching interests set in Native American/Indigenous education and intersections with at least one of the following areas:
- Culture, Diversity, Social Justice, and Sustainability
- Critical feminisms (e.g. Intersectionality Theory, Black Feminism, Chicana Feminism, Transnational Feminism, Ecofeminism, etc.)
- Youth Cultures
- Critical Theories (e.g. Queer Theories, Critical Race Theories, Disability Studies, Decolonial Theories, etc.)
- Qualitative Research Methods (e.g., Critical Ethnography, Critical Discourse Analysis, Epistemologies, Indigenous, Feminist, Autoethnography, Case Studies, Arts-Based Methods, etc.)
(1) providing leadership and service in working with schools
(2) engaging in collaborative work with peers and Native American/Indigenous communities
(3) recruitment and retention of Native American/Indigenous students
(4) strong interest in teaching undergraduate students

(6) maintaining an active program of engaged and applied scholarship, which may include pursuing external funding.

- Evidence of appropriate contribution to scholarship in the fields noted above.

- Expertise to teach graduate and undergraduate coursework
