PhD Positing in Indigenous Place-Based Science
CLEAR, an anti-colonial and feminist marine science research lab based at Memorial University (Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada), is recruiting a fully-funded, Indigenous doctoral position in place-based science. This position takes emplaced knowledge, relations, and practices as its starting point for science, broadly defined. The exact contours of the project are up to the applicant but note that CLEAR’s specialties are in marine plastic pollution, citizen science, feminist science studies, Indigenous science and technology studies, and Métis law. We do not assume that “place” does not also mean urban. This position is funded and advised by Dr. Max Liboiron (Michif) in the Geography Department of Memorial University, and applicants can earn a Ph.D. in the natural or social sciences. Applications are encouraged by Dec 15th but may be accepted after that time if the position is not filled. Anticipated start date is May or September 2019, but other start dates can be considered. Really, we just want some awesome colleagues and logistics are secondary. Note that this position is for a self-identified Indigenous person. To apply, please see CLEAR’s website, and send a letter of introduction, unofficial transcripts, and a CV to Dr. Max Liboiron at firstname.lastname@example.org.
