The University of Victoria’s Department of Indigenous Education (Victoria, Canada) invites applications for a limited term Post‐Doctoral Fellowship position. The appointment is for one year, with the potential for extension for a second year. The position is salaried at $48,940 per annum and available after June 1, 2018, until filled.
"The six‐year NEȾOLṈEW̱ ‘One mind, one people’ Research Partnership between UVIC and nine Indigenous community Partners works to understand and enhance Indigenous adults’ contributions to reviving Indigenous languages in Canada. Increasingly, adults are identified as the “missing generation” of learners who hold great potential to contribute to the revival of Indigenous languages in Canada by acting as the middle ground between Elders, children and youth within their communities. It is within this context that our Partnership addresses Indigenous adult language learning."

- Develop and carry out community‐based research related to Indigenous language learning
- Participate in Partnership knowledge creation and sharing, including presenting at All‐ Partners’ Gatherings and other relevant conferences, as well as publish in academic journals and other relevant media
- Contribute expertise to at least one research theme
Applications will be accepted until April 30, 2018. For more information about this opportunity and how to apply, please visit the Netolnew webpage or see the full call document attached below:
