Dear Colleagues,

Below is a tenure-track vacancy in Humanities at UAS. It would be wonderful to have an Alaska Native in this position who can contribute to what we are doing with Alaska Native Languages & Studies.

The University of Alaska Southeast seeks applications for a tenure-track position in Humanities/English starting fall semester 2014. The successful candidate must hold a Ph.D. with a specialization or significant work in environmental humanities, human geography, English, rhetoric, composition, indigenous studies, or a closely related field.

The University of Alaska Southeast is an equal-opportunity, affirmative-action institution committed to cultural diversity and compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. We strongly encourage applications from candidates who share our commitment to diversity.

It would be amazing to have another faculty member who can build on what we are doing here in Alaska Native Languages & Studies. We stand on the shoulders of giants: Walter Soboleff, Vesta Dominicks, Esther Shea, Florence Sheakley, Dennis Demmert, Ken Austin, Ed Gamble, Phyllis Almquist, Charles Natkong, Duffy Wright, Jeane Breinig, Martha Denny, Donna May Roberts, Evelyn Hotch, Hans Chester, Bessie Cooley, Nora Dauenhauer, David Katzeek, Yarrow Varra, Marsha Hotch, David Boxley, Linda Schrack, Ben Young, Vivian Mork, Jessica Chester, Terri Burr, Ernestine Hayes, Holly Churchill, Delores Churchill, Richard Dauenhauer, Alice Taff, Steve Henrikson, Jordan Lachler, Roy Mitchell, Ray Watkins, Duane Bosch, and many more I am probably forgetting at this time.

Indigenous knowledge lives at the University of Alaska Southeast, and is a fundamental part of what we do.
