The applicant should hold a doctorate (or evidence of near completion) in Educational Studies or a relevant field. The candidate will have lived experience and a demonstrated record of engagement in Black communities would be an asset (e.g., African Canadian or African Nova Scotian communities).

The successful candidate will be able to teach courses in both the B.Ed. and graduate programs. Experience teaching at the K-12, B.Ed. and/or graduate level will be considered an asset.
Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy and interests, evidence of scholarship/research in education (i.e. sample publications), and contact information for three references. An additional letter of reference may be included from a referee who could speak to the applicant’s engagement in Black communities. The Faculty will begin considering applications on April 30th, 2024. The position will remain open until it is filled.
