Are you an academic with a background in water and sanitation governance? Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research-intensive Universities?

You will work with Prof Anna Mdee to, develop and collaborate on a number of her research projects. You will have a relevant doctorate in international development or Social Sciences and you will deal independently with a wide range of people and support existing research as well as conducting new research. You will possess excellent analytical and writing skills and the ability to deal with a variety of tasks to set deadlines. The ability to work alone or as part of a team are essential, along with strong organisational skills.
