EMPLOYMENT: Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow (IFPRI)
The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) seeks a qualified candidate to serve as Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow (RF/SRF) for a two-year, fixed-term, renewable appointment in the Director General’s Office. This position will report to the Chief of Staff, under the overall guidance of the Director General.
IFPRI’s 2013-2018 Strategy (http://www.ifpri.org/publication/ifpri-strategy-2013-2018) has identified ‘Building Resilience’ as one of its six strategic research areas. In 2014, IFPRI convened an international conference on “Building Resilience for Food and Nutrition Security” and subsequently organized a workshop to further advance the research agenda on resilience (http://www.2020resilience.ifpri.info/). IFPRI now aims to develop an integrated resilience research program that will help fill important gaps in resilience research, set benchmarks for achieving resilience at various levels, and help policymakers and practitioners evaluate, design, and implement policies, programs, and investments for successfully building resilience to multiple shocks including economic, environmental, and social shocks that adversely impact on food and nutrition security.
The candidate will help to develop this research portfolio, among other responsibilities. For full details and to apply, please see here. Deadline is Feb. 22.
