17 June 2021

It is with both pride and sadness that we announce Professor Jemma Wadham, will be stepping down as Cabot Institute Director from July, to take up a chair in Norway (UiT the Arctic University of Norway/Norwegian Polar Institute in Tromsø).

We are incredibly proud and happy for Jemma, as she continues her critical work on glaciers and delighted that she will still retain a small position in Bristol and will continue to be an active member of the Cabot Institute. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Jemma for her significant contributions to the Cabot Institute for the Environment. From all the community we wish her all the very best as she pursues her love of glaciers and desire to work in the critical area of Arctic Change.  

We are delighted to announce that Professor Guy Howard, who is part of Cabot’s leadership team (Associate Director, International) will be stepping up as interim Director for the next six months or so, as we advertise the Directorship over the summer.
