IFPRI Seeking Senior Researcher to Lead Resilience Research

Following the 2020 conference on “Building Resilience for Food and Nutrition Security” and the identification of “Building Resilience” as one of six research areas in IFPRI’s 2013-2018 Strategy, IFPRI aims to develop an integrated resilience research program that will help fill important gaps in resilience research. To that end, IFPRI is seeking a qualified candidate to serve as Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow (RF/SRF) for a two-year renewable appointment.

 

Essential duties will include facilitating a shared clear vision for the resilience research area among IFPRI’s divisions and the two CGIAR Research Programs led by the Institute; shaping an innovative research area that can bring evidence to bear on policies and programs to strengthen resilience for food and nutrition security; and developing, implementing, and coordinating the resilience research area, including providing intellectual and management leadership. This position will be based in the Director General’s Office in Washington, DC and will report to the Chief of Staff.
