Faculty positions for Experienced Development Practitioners

We invite applications for multiple faculty positions in various thematic areas related to development.

  • Public health
  • Environment and climate change
  • Local governance and democracy
  • Development theories and histories
  • Technology and development
  • Social entrepreneurship
  • Gender in development
  • Adivasi concerns
  • Forest rights and forest based livelihoods

We are looking for:

  • Deep expertise in at least one of the thematic areas listed above.
  • An ability for strong empirical research.
