Canada Research Chair (Tier 2)

Political Ecology

Environmental Studies – Faculty of Social Sciences

January 1, 2020 start date

The School of Environmental Studies at the University of Victoria, located on the traditional territories of the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples, invites applications for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Political Ecology. The interdisciplinary field of Political Ecology critically investigates the social, political, economic and cultural dimensions of environmental challenges to develop solutions that are effective because they are responsive to not only technical and ecological but social and political realities. We encourage candidates who engage with critical and intersectional approaches (e.g., Indigenous, anti-racist, decolonial, feminist, queer). We also welcome candidates with commitments to public engagement and community-based research, research with Indigenous communities, and/or who are in conversation with the natural sciences. The School of Environmental Studies, is supported by three overlapping streams of scholarship: political ecology, ethnoecology, and ecological restoration. We are a relatively small group and depend on close cooperation, mutual respect and camaraderie for our flourishing.
