The New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) is the socio-economic programme of the African Union (AU). NEPAD’s Office of Science and Technology (OST) is the designated technical and administrative secretariat for the implementation of Africa’s Science and Technology Consolidated Plan of Action (CPA). Its mandate is to coordinate the implementation of the CPA and provide technical backstopping to the AU Commission and the African Ministerial Council on Science and Technology (AMCOST).
NEPAD OST seeks to recruit a coordinator for the new programme. Based in Pretoria South Africa, the coordinator will work under the guidance and direction of the Director of NEPAD OST. He or she will be responsible for provision of effective operational management and implementation of the programme.
