Western University is pleased to invite applications from emerging and established Black scholars for five probationary (tenure-track) or tenured academic appointments to be held in any of eleven Western Faculties. The anticipated start date will be July 1, 2022, or as negotiated.

Western University is committed to embedding a culture of equity, diversity, and inclusivity for all by increasing the representation of Black members of faculty. The recruitment and retention of Black faculty is critical to building a culture of inclusivity and to integrating expertise and experiences of equity-deserving groups into curricular offerings, research/ scholarly activities, teaching and service. As a research-intensive institution of higher learning and a community leader, Western recognizes that our pursuit of research excellence and our commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion are mutually supporting.

The appointments may be probationary (tenure-track) at the rank of Assistant Professor or Associate Professor, or tenured appointments at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor, depending on qualifications and experience. Salary will be commensurate with the candidate’s career stage and rank. Successful candidates must hold a PhD, or equivalent, in a discipline appropriate to the field of research or be near completion at the time of application. Qualifications for the positions include evidence of research or scholarly productivity and a strong commitment to teaching (including mentorship and supervision), and service.

Applicants considered for a probationary appointment must have a demonstrated record of, or a strong potential for, excellence in scholarly research, teaching and service, appropriate to career stage. Candidates considered for appointments with tenure must have demonstrated excellence in scholarly research, teaching, and service appropriate to career stage. The successful candidates will have potential or proven ability to obtain internal and/or external funding for independent research or scholarly activity.

All applicants to this cluster hiring opportunity must self-identify as Black within their cover letter. Because this is a special opportunity of the Provost restricted to self-identified Black candidates, applicant self-identification information will be used for the purposes of screening and consideration. Please note that this information will be securely accessed only by members of a central search committee and, for successful applicants, for the fulfilment of cluster hiring purpose(s). This particular search process follows the provisions for a special program as described in Section 14 of the Ontario Human Rights Commission in order to address the under-representation of Black academics among our faculty complement.
