IAUC Board: Call for nominations

2022-10-21 in IAUC Admin, IAUC Statements, Members

We are calling for nominations for two new members of the Board of the International Association for Urban Climate (IAUC) for the term 2023 – 2026. This is to replace Matthias Demuzere (Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany) and Helen Ward (University of Innsbruck, Austria) whose terms on the Board expire in 2022. We thank Matthias and Helen for their commitment and contributions to IAUC while serving on the Board.

The Board is seeking new members eager to play an active role in the development of the Association and who reflect the diversity of our membership. The deadline for nominations is 15. November 2022, 23:59 (UTC).

The IAUC is committed to and promotes inclusive and equitable participation of a diverse community in its membership. Based on our diversity statement, we strongly encourage nominations of candidates who diversify the board in terms of fields of study, geographical location, gender, career stages etc. We thus particularly encourage nominations of young scholars, including graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.

The nominee should also provide their affiliation, country and supply a short statement containing a reference to their link to IAUC and urban climate which will be shared with the membership at the election (if there is one).
