Qualifications:
Preference will be given to candidates who hold a Ph.D. in a related area. Applicants should have knowledge and experience of equity, diversity and inclusion within an education environment. An understanding of Manitoba school curriculum and successful teaching and/or research are assets. The successful candidate must also be accepted into the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
