*Subject: *CHARS Chief Scientist Position**

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that I would like to announce the posting of 
the Canadian High Arctic Research Station's (CHARS) first key leadership 
position, the Chief Scientist. As a high-profile position, the Chief 
Scientist will significantly contribute to the world-class stature 
envisioned for CHARS.

As you may recall, in August 2012, the Prime Minister announced 
$46,200,000 over six years for the CHARS Science and Technology (S&T) 
Program. It was also announced that an additional $26,500,000 per year 
has been set aside, as of 2018-2019, for the on-going program and 
operations of the station. This S&T funding has allowed us to take the 
next step in the development of the CHARS S&T program and the CHARS 

The Chief Scientist will guide the launch of the CHARS S&T program and 
be responsible for establishing the year-round presence in Cambridge 
Bay. They will also be a key broker of partnerships between CHARS and 
stakeholders such as polar institutions, the private sector, academics, 
Northerners and federal departments. For specific details about the 
requirements for this position please consult the following job posters:
