The School of Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT) at Simon Fraser 
University in Vancouver, Canada, is announcing a prestigious faculty 
position: a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Technological Change for 
Inclusion. (Canada Research Chairs are distinguished professorships). 
This call is for a tenure track Assistant or Associate Professor and is 
open to international and national applicants. Applicants must have 
received their PhD within the last 10 years.

While technological advances aim to improve our quality of life, they 
often perpetuate and reproduce longstanding structural and systemic 
social injustices and inequalities. SIAT acknowledges the urgency for 
critical research in issues such as systemic racism, social inequity, 
and decoloniality that advocate for inclusion and justice in technology, 
and we acknowledge our challenges in meeting these needs. The successful 
applicant will join us in advancing technological change for inclusion, 
especially in an area for change that we see as a priority in SIAT. This 
includes critical algorithm studies and algorithmic bias, intersectional 
and decolonial approaches to technology, and climate justice or labour 
at the intersection of technological innovation. We are also open to 
other related programs of research that address the goals of 
technological change for inclusion.

If you are interested in applying or know of any suitable applicants in 
your network of colleagues, post-docs, and former students please direct 
them to the advertisement and encourage them to apply before application 
review starts.

The full advertisement and application instructions are on our website 
http://www.sfu.ca/siat/hiring/crc.html. Application review will begin 
January 15, 2023.

Best wishes
