ECU has a diverse student body that welcomes people from more than 50 countries. Each individual enriches our institution with their unique perspectives and practices. As part of our commitment to transformation and equality, we want to ensure that our faculty reflects the diversity of our exceptional students. And like many post-secondary institutions, we are working to dismantle a legacy of white supremacy and institutional racism. It’s critical that we empower scholars from all backgrounds to succeed as educators and researchers, to give our students the education they deserve and to shape the future of the university.

To realize this goal, we are seeking five new faculty members to join Emily Carr. We recognize that members of Indigenous and racialized communities have been historically underrepresented at our university, as they have at many others. With approval from BC’s Office of the Human Rights Commissioner, we are restricting this employment opportunity to candidates who identify as Indigenous or as a member of a racialized group.

The five positions are:

An additional three positions will be open in late April 2021 (3D Animation, Studio Art, Print Media). Two of these three positions will also be restricted to Indigenous and racialized candidates.

Applications for all five positions will be reviewed starting March 31, 2021, and continue until the positions are filled. For more information about each position click on the linked position titles above. Interested candidates may apply online at

Emily Carr University is partnering with BIPOC Executive Search to help ensure that people from historically disadvantaged groups are able to participate fully and equitably.
