Job Title:
Postdoctoral Researcher


Department:
Arts and Sciences | Comparative Studies

The Department of Comparative Studies, within the College of Arts and Sciences at The Ohio State University, invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral position in Indigenous Knowledges. Comparative Studies is a multi-disciplinary community of scholars brought together by a shared interest in how human societies organize themselves through the production of knowledge, discourses, and material practices; our work is informed by a commitment to social justice, and energized by critical questions about how justice is to be defined and how it can be realized. We seek a dynamic, innovative scholar who can demonstrate deep engagement with indigenous knowledge systems as reflected in the languages, lifeways, epistemologies, ethics, healing practices, environmental practices, and/or technologies of one or more groups. In keeping with the department’s interest in public-facing humanities projects, we also seek applicants interested in how indigenous knowledges can productively inform larger conversations in the sciences, law, public policy, heritage conversation, commerce, environmental justice movements, and/or social justice movements.

The Postdoctoral Researcher will teach one course each semester for the Department of Comparative Studies, including one section each year of Introduction to American Indian Studies, and participate actively in the intellectual life of the department while pursuing their own research projects. They will find mentors and conversation partners within the Department of Comparative Studies in one or more of the department’s key areas of focus—comparative cultural studies, comparative literature, folklore, religious studies, and science and technology studies. They will likewise be embedded in interdisciplinary, cross-departmental networks constellated around, for example, American Indian Studies, the Center for Ethnic Studies, African and African American Studies, Medical Humanities, Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, as appropriate. The position is available for two years, starting August 2021.

We invite applicants whose work focuses on any topic within Indigenous Knowledges, including but not limited to indigeneity and environmentalism; indigenous art, literature, and material culture; global indigenous organizing; indigeneity and the carceral state; diasporas; revitalization projects; treaty rights, sovereignty, and nationhood; citizenship and identity; indigenous sexualities and gendered identities; indigenous religion and spirituality; indigenous medicine and healing; and indigenous futurisms. Applicants may be trained in any discipline and work with any indigenous community or communities, but they must be prepared to teach Introduction to American Indian Studies. Preferred candidates will be familiar with and comfortable with community-based participatory research (CPR) and other decolonizing methodologies, and have a relationship with at least one indigenous community (reservation, rural, suburban, or urban). Candidates must have the PhD in hand by August 15th, 2021.

This position is made possible by Ohio State’s Global Arts + Humanities Discovery Theme.

Required: A strong research agenda and demonstrated excellence in and commitment to interdisciplinary teaching and research are required. PhD in relevant field of study must be obtained by August 2021.

To apply, please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research and teaching statements, and names of three references. Applicants should be prepared to provide a writing sample, a sample syllabus for the Introduction to American Indian Studies course, and three letters of reference, upon request. Review of applications will begin on April 25, 2021, and will continue until the position is filled. Inquiries may be directed to: Melissa Anne-Marie Curley (curley.32@osu.edu).
