Indigenous Science Scholar – Faculty of Science – University of Victoria

For over 60 years, UVic has proven its unwavering commitment to providing an excellent student experience in a supportive teaching and learning environment, to partnering with communities, and to pursuing research and creative activities that make an impact, both locally and globally. We are prepared to face a changing world with renewed commitment, enthusiasm, compassion and humility.
Inspired by and honouring place, we are a community-minded, globally engaged university where we transform ideas into meaningful impact.

Territory Acknowledgement:

We acknowledge and respect the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples on whose traditional territory the university stands and whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day. We invite applicants to watch the “Welcome to the Territory” video and to visit the Songhees, Esquimalt, and W̱SÁNEĆ Nations’ websites to learn more about these vibrant communities. To learn more about the Indigenous community on campus, please see the Indigenous Academic and Community Engagement (IACE) office’s website.

Indigenization and Decolonization at UVic:

The University of Victoria is committed to the ongoing work of decolonizing and Indigenizing the campus
community both inside and outside the classroom. UVic released our second Indigenous Plan in 2023 and the Faculty of Science has drafted its Indigenization Implementation Strategy (2022-2026) as we prepare ourselves for the work ahead. Decolonization and Indigenization are integral aspects of the 2023 UVic Strategic Plan and the 2022 Faculty of Science Strategic Plan.

To advance our work on Indigenization and decolonization, the Faculty of Science is excited to invite Indigenous applicants for three faculty positions in any field of Science. The three available positions are at the tenure-track assistant professor level and are cross-posted across our six departments: Biochemistry & Microbiology, Biology, Chemistry, Earth & Ocean Sciences, Mathematics & Statistics, and Physics & Astronomy.

UVic has a vibrant Indigenous community with over 1,400 Indigenous students as of 2023 and over 65 Indigenous faculty. In 2022, Qwul’sih’yah’maht, Dr. Robina Thomas was appointed as the first Vice President Indigenous and she is leading the work of decolonization at UVic. In the same year, Marion Buller, renowned legal scholar and the first First Nations woman to be appointed as a judge in British Columbia, has been appointed chancellor of the University of Victoria. Not surprisingly, UVic has been ranked #1 in Canada for promoting Indigenous visibility (Maclean’s 2022).

The Faculty of Science at UVic:

The six departments in the Faculty of Science at UVic host over 140 research-active faculty members, 400 graduate students and several dozen professional researchers and support staff. All of us are deeply committed to diversification across our ranks, particularly, although not limited to people who are Indigenous, racialized, disabled, and/or have marginalized sexualities and gender identities. We educate 3000 undergraduate students in 30 different degree programs, and confer degrees from the bachelor to doctoral level. The Faculty of Science also supports six research centres – from forest biology to particle physics – and is host to 12 Canada Research Chairs. The University of Victoria is ranked #3 in the world
for climate action (2023 THE Impact Rankings), and UVic is ranked 5th in Canada and #220 globally for research impact across all sciences (2023 Times Higher Education). All high rankings are in no small part due to the research and education conducted by researchers and instructors in our six departments.
The UVic Faculty of Science is the destination of choice for curious minds.
