Call for UArctic Chair EOIs

The UArctic has issued a call to its member institutions to submit expressions of interest to nominate researchers (at the level of full professor or equivalent) to serve as a UArctic Chair.  Each Chair will have a five-year term.  Lakehead University is seeking expressions of interest from faculty members interested in being nominated as a  UArctic Chair.  A Chair would be expected to spend 20% of their time on their UArctic Chair duties and undertake international travel.  Lakehead University is willing to nominate up to two Chairs and provide the appropriate release time support as well support for at least two international travels each year.  The two-stage nomination process initially involves the submission of an EOI by the nominating institution.  If the EOI is successful, a full proposal would then be submitted.
If you are interested in being nominated for UArctic Chair, you are asked to contact Andrew Hacquoil (, no later than April 15, 2024 to express your interest.  For more information on the UArctic call for expressions of interest, please click here.  You are also encouraged to review the UArctic Chairs – Terms of Reference for further information regarding what is expected of a UArctic Chair.
