Vice President, Programs and Partnership Branch
International Development Research Centre
Location: Ottawa, Canada
Part of Canada’s foreign affairs and development efforts, the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) invests in knowledge, innovation, and solutions to improve lives and livelihoods in the developing world. Bringing together the right partners around opportunities for impact, IDRC builds leaders for today and tomorrow and helps drive change for those who need it most.
IDRC’s Program and Partnership Branch helps bring ideas to life. Its development programs support innovative solutions that improve global access to food, jobs, health, and technologies for growth. IDRC programs seek answers that drive change — giving the world’s most vulnerable people hope and opportunities for the future. The organization’s programs share three strategic objectives; invest in knowledge and innovation for large-scale positive change, build the leaders for today and tomorrow, and be the partner of choice for greater impact. It is within this context that IDRC is currently seeking an experienced leader as its next Vice President, Programs and Partnership Branch.
As the ideal candidate, you possess a PhD in a discipline related to the work of IDRC’s Program Areas. Diplomate, you are an articulate and persuasive communicator, with sound knowledge of translating research into policy and practice for research programs and institutions. Your creative and innovative management and leadership style will be essential in leading a multidisciplinary team in diverse cultural contexts. Your ability to communicate in English and French will help you interact in the international fora in which IDRC operates.
