The major risks facing the world - from food and water security to climate change - are
complex, systemic, and far-reaching. The Risk and Resilience Program (RISK) Program at IIASA takes an interdisciplinary, systems perspective with the vision of transforming the way societies manage these risks while confronting the global trends amplifying them. The program puts strong emphasis on enhancing the resilience of vulnerable communities, countries, and regions. Through research and active engagement, RISK’s work has influenced deliberations on the UN International Mechanism for Loss and Damage, and the Sendai Framework.
We are seeking administrative support for the RISK Program for a temporary period of six to twelve months to cover for maternity leave.
This position is to cover for maternity leave. The selected candidate will initially be offered a fixed term contract for six months running from July 2017 to December 2017 (there may be a possibility for extension for a further six month term thereafter). This is a part-time position for 20 hours per week (working hours are negotiable).
Since we foresee being able to fill General Service posts such as this with locally recruited candidates, allowances for travel to the Institute and settlement in Austria will not apply.
IIASA is committed to a working environment that promotes equality, diversity, tolerance and inclusion within its workforce, and encourages qualified female and male candidates from all religious, ethnic and social backgrounds to apply. In the case that candidates are equally qualified, preference will be given to applicants who are nationals of IIASA member countries.
To apply, please email a cover letter, resume, plus names, addresses (including e-mail), and telephone numbers of two work-related reference givers to:
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the post has been filled.
