The successful candidate will be responsible for teaching introductory survey sociology courses as well as teaching and developing upper-level courses in their area of expertise.

The Chair will partner with Indigenous Peoples, people, communities, and/or associations, employ Indigenous approaches, protocols, and methodologies to their research, and will seek transformation of health (or health-related) systems and/or determinants. The Chair will also be expected to teach at the undergraduate and graduate level.
