A Canadian university accepts only “self-identified” applicants for a track teaching position in Economics.
Toronto Metropolitan University posted a job listing for applied microeconomics, or economics, on Nov. 21 and said on its website that the school is “committed to addressing the underrepresentation of black faculty.”
“Effective candidates will demonstrate excellence and willingness and ability to identify themselves as being of African descent (eg, Africans and African heritage from the Caribbean, America, Europe): teaching, scholarly research, or creative activity and service while maintaining an inclusive, equitable, and collegial work environment in all activities.”
“All applicants for this opportunity must self-identify as black,” the job description states.
