Hezekiah University Vacancy for the Post of Vice Chancellor 2020

Hezekiah University (UNIHEZ) Imo State Internal & External Advertisement for the Vacant Position of Vice Chancellor, See Qualifications, Requirements, Application Guidelines and Deadline.

Applications are hereby invited from suitably qualified candidates to fill the vacant post of Vice-Chancellor at Hezekiah University, Umudi, Imo State, Nigeria.


A candidate shall be a Professor of not less than four (4) years standing, with not only a Ph.D., but also an outstanding academic record with a great wealth of experience in teaching and research, and must have participated in national and international seminars and conferences, published well-researched quality papers in reputable local, national and international journals as well as mainline academic books. Also, candidates should have necessarily demonstrated academic leadership through the supervision of postgraduate theses or dissertations. A retired, healthy, and vibrant professor can equally apply.

Desired Qualities/Attributes:

The candidate for the post of Vice-Chancellor shall be a person of proven integrity, with very high regard for moral values, and shall be capable of implementing the vision and mission as well as the policies of Hezekiah University. We are searching for a kindhearted, selfless, and hardworking Vice-Chancellor, who understands the present economic situation in the country, as well as the fact that Hezekiah University is a private university funded by an individual, unlike federal and state universities, which are funded by the federal and state governments respectively. We need a Vice-Chancellor, who will not only appreciate and add value to our efforts but also assist us greatly in building a prosperous world-class citadel of learning, where academic excellence is dispensed with good morals.


Negotiable, but very attractive compared with what obtains in other private universities in Nigeria.
