Faculty Positions in Indigenous and Aboriginal Law, and in Northern Land Use Law, Bora Laskin Faculty of Law Lakehead University

The Bora Laskin Faculty of Law at Lakehead University invites applications for three faculty positions at the tenured or tenure-track level. Candidates will be appointed as Full, Associate or Assistant Professors, depending on qualifications, teaching, and research experience. These appointments will commence in the summer of 2018 and offer excellent opportunities to join Ontario’s newest law school and contribute to its unique focus on the legal issues of Northern Ontario.

Located in Thunder Bay, the Bora Laskin Faculty of Law graduated its first class in 2016. Its Integrated Practice Curriculum has made the Faculty the first Canadian law school to provide real world legal skills as part of the J.D. program, allowing graduates to be called to the bar in Ontario without needing to article. Three mandates are embraced within the Faculty’s curriculum: Aboriginal and Indigenous Law, Natural Resources and Environmental Law, and Sole/Small Town Practice with the Integrated Practice Curriculum. Committed to making a difference, providing access to justice, and leading the way for northern communities, the Faculty is home to an innovative curriculum, distinguished learner-centered legal professionals,  and the opportunity to serve its community through Lakehead University Community Legal Services.

Lakehead is a comprehensive university with a reputation for innovative programs and cutting-edge research. With campuses located in Thunder Bay and Orillia, Ontario, Lakehead has almost 10,000 full-time equivalent students and 2,000 faculty and staff.  Lakehead offers a variety of degree and diploma programs at the undergraduate, graduate and doctoral levels through its ten faculties and has annual expenditures of $178.5 million, with an estimated annual economic impact on Ontario’s GDP of $1.3 billion from its Thunder Bay campus and $122.7 million from its Orillia campus. Located at the head of Lake Superior, Lakehead’s Thunder Bay campus is one of the most beautiful in Canada, with many of its programs complemented by fieldwork and a focus on northern socio-economic issues. Further information is available at www.lakeheadu.ca.

Successful candidates for these three positions will possess strong academic qualifications in law, and research and teaching experience that is relevant to the Faculty’s three mandates as well as a law degree. Two of the positions will focus on Indigenous legal traditions and Aboriginal legal issues and law, with preference given to candidates with research and teaching expertise in these areas. Applications from candidates who employ Indigenous pedagogy in their teaching and have experience engaging with the language, worldview, traditions, and protocols of an Indigenous people are preferred. The third position will focus on both business and land use law and provides the successful candidate the opportunity to further develop the Faculty’s mandate in the areas of natural resources, environmental, and mining law in the north. Aboriginal or Indigenous candidates are encouraged to apply for all three positions.

Lakehead University is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment and welcomes applications from all qualified individuals including women, racialized persons, Indigenous people and persons with disabilities.

Tenure Track Faculty Positions - Thunder Bay Campus

Lakehead University’s Department of Psychology invites applications for one Tenure-Track faculty appointment at the Assistant Professor level to commence January 1, 2017. The Department has several undergraduate programs, along with Master and Doctoral programs in Clinical Psychology and Psychological Science.  

The applicant would bring research, teaching, and clinical expertise to complement the research program of the Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Mental Health and Addiction.  The CRC’s current program of research and five-year research plan approaches Indigenous mental health and addiction in four interconnected directions with the following goals: 

  1. Identify culturally and contextually appropriate targets of intervention and develop methods for measuring outcomes;
  2. Identify western evidence-based and traditional approaches that show promise for treating mental health and addiction issues among Indigenous people;
  3. Develop and test intervention approaches which bring together culture- and community-based knowledge with western-scientific methods; and,
  4. Disseminate new knowledge broadly in Indigenous communities, scientific communities, and among policy and decision-makers using accessible knowledge translation approaches.

In addition to complementing the CRC’s research program, the successful applicant should be able to contribute to the overall research and training needs of the Graduate Programs in Clinical Psychology - a strong commitment to the Scientist-Practitioner model of training is highly desirable for the position.   

The ideal applicant will hold a PhD in Clinical Psychology and be eligible for registration with the College of Psychologists of Ontario (CPO). Preference is given to candidates who have graduated from a CPA-accredited program and completed a CPA-accredited internship. Experience working clinically with First Nations children, adolescents, and adults would be a highly valued asset. 

Knowledge of, and ability to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in child development and child psychopathology would be an asset.  Experience teaching at the graduate level and supervising graduate student research projects is highly desirable.
