sharing in governance of extractive industries
The International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) is seeking a highly skilled individual to lead its work in artisanal and small....
IIED's ASM work includes both research and a global programme of in-country dialogues on ASM. Research on ASM has looked to bring new evidence to an outdated discourse and frame ASM more squarely within the range of rural actors able to make a positive contribution to sustainable development.
Our research has explored mechanisms that govern the sector (such as formalisation and labour policies) and the linkages between ASM and other rural livelihoods, such as agriculture. There is significant opportunity for an exceptional candidate to expand our research programme on ASM, including developing cross-institute collaborations on key sustainable development issues such as land rights and the green economy.
The post-holder will be responsible for developing and executing further research proposals, working with both internal and external stakeholders and identifying innovative research needs for the sector. We are therefore looking for someone with expertise to across the natural resource sectors, who has, at a minimum, an interest in ASM and able to apply their knowledge to the sector.
Salary: £42,373-£46,677 per annum depending on experience (up to £52,689 for exceptional candidates), plus benefits.
Closing date: 10am on 28 January 2016 (GMT)
