Applications are invited from leading scholars in the areas of northern and Arctic inquiry to serve as Executive Director of the Arctic Institute of North America (AINA), a major multi-disciplinary institute of the University of Calgary that was created in 1945 to advance the study of the North American and circumpolar Arctic through the natural and social sciences, the arts, and the humanities. This opportunity comes at a time of unprecedented interest in the Artic within governments, academia, industry, and the media, and at a time when Northerners feel increasing pressures from a unique convergence of issues that revolve around climate change, resource development, sovereignty, security and social conditions.
