These individuals should bring the perspectives of sociology, anthropology and/or human geography to international development. They might have expertise and experience related, for example, to rural development, gender, migration, urbanisation, etc. At least one of these positions will be filled by an individual with skills and experience in the application of qualitative and/or mixed methods.

One bilingual French/ English Co-Editor with a broad-based expertise in international development research

This individual must be able to handle submissions in both English and French. They should have broad-based expertise and experience in international development research using quantitative and qualitative approaches and interdisciplinary perspectives.

Application process:
