Faculty search underway

NAIS will hold a faculty search this year for the Mae and John Hueston Distinguished Professorship in Native American and Indigenous Studies.



The Department of Native American and Indigenous Studies at Dartmouth College invites applications for a tenured full (or associate) professor to begin July 1, 2024. This is a newly endowed chair that supports the study of Native American and global Indigenous Peoples, designated as the Mae and John Hueston Distinguished Professorship in Native American and Indigenous Studies. Specific areas of focus include, but are not limited to: Indigenous politics and sovereignty; law; economics; philosophy; kinship and social relations; transnational and/or migration studies; environmental and land management; gender studies and/or feminisms.

In all contexts, we seek an established scholar whose academic training, scholarship and teaching are firmly grounded in global Indigenous studies. Whether situated within or outside of the United States, qualified candidates must demonstrate expertise relating to the Native peoples of the US and to Indigenous Peoples in other regions of the world through comparative and/or international methods of study and inquiry. The successful candidate's work will complement but not duplicate existing areas of expertise within Native American and Indigenous Studies at Dartmouth. Dartmouth has a long-standing commitment to interdisciplinary studies and NAIS has long-established relations with other departments and units whose interests and activities in Indigenous studies intersect with our own.

This search is part of a cohort hiring initiative in Native American and Indigenous Studies across the Arts and Sciences at Dartmouth. The other positions are in Indigenous Archeology and Indigenous Environmental Studies. Collectively, these hires reflect the college's commitment to building and sustaining innovative Indigenous scholarship and teaching at Dartmouth.

The Department of Native American and Indigenous Studies and Dartmouth are committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive population of students, faculty, and staff. Dartmouth recently launched a new initiative, Toward Equity, that embraces shared definitions of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging as a foundation for our success in institutional transformation. We are especially interested in applicants who are able to work effectively with students, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds and with different identities and attributes. Applicants should state in their letter of application how their teaching, research, service, and/or life experiences prepare them to advance Dartmouth's commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion.


Ph.D. in Global Indigenous Studies or in a specific relevant discipline with research and teaching experience related to global Indigenous studies.  Effective classroom teaching is essential for this position.
