The WorldFish Center's mission is to reduce poverty and hunger by
improving fisheries and aquaculture. We have offices in nine countries
and are engaged in collaborative research with partners in more than 50
countries. Our headquarters is in Penang, Malaysia. The Center is a
nonprofit organization and a member of the Consultative Group on
International Agricultural Research (CGIAR). For further details, please
visit our website at www.worldfishcenter.org


Researchers in Aquaculture and Fisheries 

Of course, we also want to hear from fish specialists, especially those
with expertise in:

*	Aquaculture, with research interests in socioeconomic and
environmental issues 
*	Small-scale fisheries, specialising in assessment and management
in tropical inland and near-shore marine systems 


 If you are excited by inter-disciplinary research that aims to optimize
the role of fisheries and aquaculture in development drop us a line.
Because we believe gender balance and cultural diversity makes us more
effective we especially welcome expressions of interest from women and
developing country nationals. Appointment levels will depend upon
experience and qualifications.


You may be stationed at any of our regional offices or at our HQ in
Penang, Malaysia but will have opportunity to travel widely. We offer
competitive remuneration packages and provide an innovative work
environment. If we still have your attention, send us your curriculum
vitae along with the names and contact details (telephone and e-mail
address) of three referees.  Applications should be made by e-mail to
worldfish-hr at cgiar.org. The initial screening of applicants will close
on August 24th, but the positions will remain open until filled.

Created in 1971, the Consultative Group on International Agricultural
Research (CGIAR) is an association of public and private members that

The CGIAR Gender and Diversity Program


In 1991, the CGIAR launched a program on gender staffing aimed at
assisting the CGIAR-supported international agricultural research
centers in their efforts to promote the recruitment, productivity,
advancement and retention of women scientists and professionals within
their organizations.  In July 1999, this program expanded to include a
wide range of diversity issues, to help the centers leverage their rich
staff diversity to increase research and management excellence.  The
program promotes such activities as diversity-positive recruitment,
international teamwork, cross-cultural communications and advancement
for women. 


The CGIAR Gender & Diversity Program is hosted at the World Agroforestry
Centre (ICRAF), Nairobi, Kenya. For more information, visit
